As topic, "(アタシは当時、バイクなんて全然詳しくなかったけど、タカのその横顔が、すごく楽しそうに見えた)"

タカ in this sentence, what does it mean (it's not a name taka for sure)

  • 3
    It's almost certainly a person whose (nick)name is Taka. I can't think of any other ways to interpret this. – naruto Nov 16 '17 at 15:18

タカ means "hawk" maybe, if it is not the nickname or the name of the man.

Maybe the woman confused ワシ (eagle) with タカ (hawk).

I knew next to nothing about motorbikes, but I was interested in them when I saw the eagle's (hawk's) profile emblem.
