I have to sweet talk mine and say stuff like "C'mon Good Girl, you're gonna like this when I'm done. Just a little cooperation... Please! but sometimes she seems like an attention whore and will make me spend alot of time with her. More then should be needed. If I start calling her names and swearing she will dig in her heels and get real stubborn.Naming a bike, indicates that you talk to it. If I'm talking to or at one of mine, it had better answer to motherfuker or pieceofshit.
