    Default Named my Ryker Rally

    Nicknamed it “The Flying Monkey”. It seamed appropriate. cueman

    I test rode and signed the papers today on a Rally in yellow shock; take possession next week. I will have to think about a proper name. The BMW GS in my avatar was the Yellow Peril. I will need to think up something appropriate for the Rally.

    I'm thinking since the front end looks like a flathead catfish

    060709sz.jpg

    and another name for the flathead is yellow catfish maybe YellaCat

    Mine is the Rally not the ACE 900 but can you see the resemblance?

    LOL!! Me too! Just like the “Boggymen” in March of The Wodden Soldiers. Lol.
    If I had a Ryker Rally I’d name it Thor! Cause those Rykers are like lightning! Or Atlas/Apollo/Saturn etc, name it after a famous rocket. I can’t think of any Canadian rockets so I just picked American rocket names.

    Given the general shape Thor's Hammer would be a great name

    Thor’s hammer is named Mjolnir. Great idea Tslepebull! That’s an awesome name, very fitting for Ryker.

    For some reason it just reminds me of the big wheel the way you sit on it down low https://youtu.be/mF8Tzi_yUIg

    OK Folks, yes, I also was afraid of the flying monkeys, but let us remember that a house landed on the wicked witch and her feet rolled up and the ruby red shoes fell off her feet. That was the end of the wicked witch. Dorothy took the shoes. The wizard was a fraud. Dorothy and To To made it back home by clicking her heels and the rest of the charactors stayed in Oz. EXCEPT for three Flying Monkeys who followed Dorothy and To To back home to the land of opportunity and got an acting career, the most famous was See no evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil and lived happily ever after. Yes, my friends, My Ryker will wear the name "The Flying Monkey" proudly! cueman

    And to piggy back on Hawks Capt Riker, let’s not forget the beautiful views and beaches of Rykers Island! Free room & board, all meals paid for and always has vacancy! So another name can be “Hard Time”.

    One of the guys in my office said YellaCat looks like the result of a one night stand between a quad and a scooter so maybe Bad Decision!
