The other thing I realized as I was riding this evening is that I've never named my bike. Maybe she's being temperamental since she is still unnamed. How will I ever rectify this situation? Of course, there's only one way -- a poll! If it helps with the naming, she's a black 1999 Honda Shadow VLX. That's a 600cc cruiser-style bike.
Use the comments to justify your suggestion.
Name my motorcycle.
