I recently acquired my Dream Bike: a 1994 PC800 and name it "SPEEDBIRD"
(License plate: "SPDBIRD", NC).
Below is a extract of a report I wrote on my first ride with "her" and
explains how she got that name:
found the bike to be a dream to “pilot” and we immediately established a
connection as we glided effortless on the OH & PA Turnpike. The winter
scenery totally made me feel like a kid on Christmas morning. Diverting my
attention from the countryside to the instrumentation, I realized that I had
unknowingly accelerated past 85mph without the slightest discomfort or
vibration… Before I started throttling back to a more conservative speed, the
wind wrapping around our symbiosis softly whispered her name to me… She called
herself “Speed Bird”, the epitome of grace and
