Sometimes it's a she, sometimes, it's an it. And sometimes its name is something translated from Q-Bert.

It's a cultural thing - in the west, we call ships, cars etc "She", in Russia, they are "He".
Somehow, Lazarus just had to be a "He" cuz of his history (junkyard escapee)...

Never really referred to my vehicles or prized possessions as gender specific. They are just objects. While I definitely have my favorites and preferences, I don't name my cars/bikes or give them personalities. Maybe if I custom built a bike, but that's not happened yet.

That is one thing I thought was probably not the best idea of Harley. "Hey man, what do you ride?" "I ride a Fat Boy!"
Not so much. I'm female, stictly dickly and still call her a her...

They say laughter is the best medicine. Unless you are laughing ALL the time, then you probably need some REAL medicine, you freak.
