Honda Wave 100

Now you can envision me on the Honda Wave 100 motorbike- with the massive Snell brand helmet that says "Legend" on the back and with my green CAMACrafts purse strategically worn across my body and in front of me to make it more difficult to snatch. I'd appreciate your thoughts for safety on the roads, and please ask that the bike won't be stolen (motorbike theft is quite common here). I use a special lock on the wheel every time I stop.

This lovely motorbike is actually not mine. Friends of mine who were teaching in Laos last year went back to the States to get married and have graciously allowed me to use their bike until they return next year. What a blessing from above!! I'm getting more and more comfortable on the bike and in traffic, but definitely ask for His protection daily.

In the past, I have usually named the vehicles I have driven...

"Bonnie Sue" the 1986 Pontiac Bonneville
"Charlie" the 1999 Chevy Cavalier
"________" the Honda Wave 100

Can you help me fill in the blank and name my temporary mode of transportation?! :)

How about HENRY after Grandma Meier's dad? And he never even drove a car let alone a motorbike!

The 'Hang 10 Honda'
A good surfer name like 'Brody' or 'Roxie'

I have been thinking of you this week. I pray you continue to thrive where you are at! You are an inspiration!

Dear Legend (that will definitely be your nickname from now on!!),

I think that you need to name this moterbike Flame...only, use the Laos name for Flame...even when telling us about it in English!!

What would it be anyway?

We need your address. Letter here waiting to send and I'm confused as to where!!!

Hey Suz--I have the same CAMA crafts purse...and don't have to be nearly as careful with it...:).

I think that bike has some sort of a batmobile type vibe...don't have a name idea, but it definitely could pull off a batman name...

Love to you. thanks for my birthday greetings from afar!

I love getting your short little emails from afar!

I think you should name it Happy, or Harry (only b/c I love When Harry Met Sally so much), or Horatio.
