I know I certainly don't.
That is why there are word censors on here. Besides, if something that sounds derogatory to you but has been shown to mean something else, offends you then I think you allow your emotions to be easily bruised. One persons opinion is also not the holy grail of truth either. As an offensive name, I think it is quite sexy and vulgar representing the purpose of the bike I built the name for - a test bike that I intend to run into the ground. It isn't a bike that is beautiful, or adorned, totally utilitarian, and meant to be abused for the sake of learning and experience. So, the bike truly is a b$$tch, and it's blackness has nothing to do with the color of someones skin. Anyway, back to work. I didn't know this would mean so much to people.
