Well, at the time (February 2010) I was boning up on my Latin. Working in the courts and various legal-related fields, I wanted to have a better understanding of legalese and lawyer-speak. So when it came time to name the bike, I had a bunch of words in mind. "Tempus" won out. It's the Latin word for "time". As we all know: time flies [tempus fugit]. And the bike was built to replicate a motorbike from another time (late-'teens). And it sounds very similar to "tempest" which is a windy storm. And I honestly didn't come up with anything that much cooler after all, so I went with it.
