Finally Named The Bike
« on: May 16, 2013, 03:04:24 PM »
After several months of throwing different names out there, I finally decided on a name for the Indian.  I wanted to name it something unique, so I started looking up different Indian names and found a handful that I really liked.  Wrote them down and have been going back and forth for like a week, and this is what I came up:

Manaba (Maa-NAA-Baa) - Which in Native American Navajo translates to "Returns To War" or  "War Returned With Her Coming".  Being that I plan on riding this bike everywhere from dirt mountain roads to running down the 1/4 mile drag strip, and I mean actually running it, I felt that this name was the most suiting.  And I like the way it rolls off the tongue.   ;)   The bike sat for over 20 years and I basically brought it back from the dead.  I find Manaba most fitting because the bike was once a bad ass, and then retired.  Now the bike is back on the road again and even a bigger bad ass than it was before.    :D

I was thinking you'd name it After your wife after all those late nights with the bike.  ERC

Lol   She just talks a lot of smack to make me feel bad.  Just don't tell her about all the REs I'm going to start collecting.   ;D
