More motorcycle madness

So far the name 'Eva' is looking good. It has been pointed out that in German 'motorcycle' is a feminine noun and thus the bike is female. Any more suggestions?

This weekend I finally got the timing dialed in almost perfectly and took the bike (her?) out for a ride. Much better starting performance, usually starting on the first kick (unless ibexris is watching.) Now that the timing is done I noticed that the valves are making a good bit of noise so I need to go adjust those. It's a good thing that I enjoy doing all this work.
