I'm a Dodge Viper fanatic. I saw a documentary one time about a snake called the "Pit Viper". There were hundreds of these snakes living in a big hole in the ground (a pit). When I joined a Viper message board, I made up the name. From that point on, all message boards I went to, I kept the same name. Partially so people would know me from different boards, but mainly so I didn't have to remember more than one user name!
Ever had someone comment on "I wouldn't drive one of those MurderCycles!".... well who the heck kills someone else on their bike??? Nope, we are only endangering our own lives... so Suicycler makes more sense. Although I must have been "lucky", so far I haven't been able to live up to my name (driving for 8 years too!)
This is my name on the other forum I frequent. Has a lot to do with Corvettes being fast, and made from glass (fiberglass). Well, the older ones at least. It's easy to remember who I am using the same name.
