Typhon? Why would you name a Buell after a Greek Deity?
Have you been playing Titan Quest, or just translating Ovid's Metamorphosis back to ancient Greek?

Old school stuff.

Ever read Zelazny's "Creatures of Light and Darkness"? The Iliad?

Modern "education" tsk tsk. apparently students don't know any Greek mythology. Heck they can't read, add or subtract. But they do know that teachers are underpaid! Only the "important" things are taught.

I like the "1125R Wombat". Has a nice ring to it....Wait Hodaka already did that...hmmm...hows about the "Dingbat" then?

Oh, and if it is to be a weather name then I am a fan of Mammatus clouds.

Something about them. Can't quite put a finger on it, but I just like the way Mammatocumulus rolls off the tongue.

Many of the Buell bikes were named after fighter aircraft of WWII.

I am not sure what using an Austrian engine will do to that naming "scheme", though.
How about the "Gooneybird" then? (C117/DC3).

WWII fighter/bomber names are great too. Spitfire, Hellcat, Mustang, Avenger, etc.

i think we've missed the obvious naming choice:

the buell blitzkrieg.

tell me that's not catchy (and slightly easier to say than the buell iwasjustfollowingorders).

bis später.

It's liquid-cooled, so I'd avoid "Tsunami", "Cloudburst", or "Monsoon."
