    Ha ha - I'm a car girl but haven't heard most of those. :LOL:

    I always liked the one for my motorcycle which is a BSA = Bastard Seized Again.

    I was told that if I wanted to experience the Brit bike thing that they are amazing machines but if I actually wanted to ride, to buy a Triumph. :lmao:
