What do you call your 919?

I remember this was posted way back when on Motorush, but I'm curious to see the results yet again with the huge 919 member base here on WT.

9-19. Sometimes a refer to it as the CB900F and see their reaction when they say... "Oh yea... I thought that's what it was."

Actually, I share some of the blame.
I believe I was the one who dared to pose the question over on Motorush. It seems nobody who sees it knows what the heck it is weather I'm at a gas station, or discussing it at lunch.
Chalk one up to 9-1-9.

I guess I'm just a bit evil here,if the person who ask's looks like they has some ideal bout bikes I'll call it a hornet.If they look like they don't know a H-D from a shadow I just tell them It's a little honda.

I normally start with 9-1-9 but if that just gets a blank stare, I'll try CB900F...

I took the 919 decal off my bike so people can't even cheat and act like they know what it is.

My wife calls mine "the gray headed bitch" . Refers to it as my other woman.

I think she gets jealous of all the time I spend out in the garage with her!

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

What is this 919 you talk of? A precursor to something like a SpeedTriple?

Could also be a phallic symbol, as in "over compensating for something" or "penis mobile".
