This is a WIERD stream!

First, my daughter is RUBY!
Next a Jade is an old english word for a lady of dubious morals!
Next, when I was a very small child in Birmingham (UK) in the 1950s a 'timmy' was a penis so I would never have anything called a 'little timmy' tho I love the number plate! (Incidentally, does anyone else make words out of number plates when they're driving/riding around? or is it just me?)
Next, tho' Paige is very pretty, is that first Paige, next Page, the final Paige, front paige news or what?
As for Kayak, you cant keep it in a heated Garage! My Dad told me, 'You can't have your Kayak and heat it!

And, it is ''The XJ' we don't have Seca's in the UK, unless you count The New Seekers (look it up on Google, or perhaps NOT) we have Diversions, and you can get arrested for some of those!

So if you've read it, and understand it, are we all wierd? If you've read it and don't understand it, is it just you? A rose, by any other name, rides just as sweet! And people say XJ/Seca/Diversions are NOT exciting! :) :) :)

Play on words, comes from English saying 'You can't have your cake and eat it.' Meaning you can't have everything you want! ;)

My bike was named by my ten year old son.

Its a peculiar colour that almost seems to change depending on the light - it can look, black, very dark blue, or even purple.

He decided to call it Blarple!

So, Miss Blarple it is :-)

And here she is:

I don't really name them. Is that odd?

My black one is Black XJ. The silver one is Scrambler. The Triumph, well, Triumph. Maybe I'm unoriginal?

Well, you do have a Parts Bin Tourer... ;)

I never name mine. The Tiger is just called Tiger, the alps were called alps. The XJ never actually had a name as I never needed to distinguish it from other bikes as it was the only one I owned at the time. So that was just called bike. As in "I'm going out and I'm taking the bike!". ;)

But really, what's in a name? Does a rose by any other name not smell as sweet?
