What is the significance of your user name for this forum? How did you come up with it?

For some of us, this is obvious, but I thought it would be fun to know what some of these user names really mean and why people chose the names they chose.

Mine is self explanatory. I do love to ride fast and that is my nickname for yahoo IM and ICQ too. I came up with it because my nickname in a scuba chat I used to go to was "luv2div" and it was kind of along those same lines.

That's an easy one. It is the first letter of my first name and my entire last name. It is the name I use on my e-mail account. Guess I have to make it easy so I don't forget it! ;)

Colin is of course my name, and 409 refers to a name I was called in High School. I was bald and referred to as Mr. Clean, and as you know 409 is a cleaner.

not much guessing needed here, right folks? just my first name and the bike i ride. i thought that since we are gonna be talking mostly about sportbikes at this forum, it would be easier for others to know what i rode.

Mine came about because I`m going to enlarge the back deck and I need footings for the deck to sit on.And I was thinking of renting one of those power augers(you know those gas powered ones with the corkscrew thingy that digs down into the ground)so that I could dig a hole for the footing.Its an unusual name that I likely won`t find anywhere else.

I live on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. People here abbreviate Outer Banks as OBX. They even sell OBX stickers and T-shirts that are quite popular with the tourists! Since I ride a Ninja, I am the "obxninja".

I have a bad habit of checking the max lean angle of my 748. I had a nasty high-side last year that put me back over $7K! One of my riding buddies said I should be jailed for "Ducati Abuse."

Needless to say, Tahoe signifies my locale. I am about 20 minutes from the lake. My usual user name is KenpoKev (mostly on martial arts boards) I thought that if I used KenpoKev on this board, you'd all think I was some kind of luney-toon and delete me.
(Kenpo is the style of martial art I teach).

Now that you KNOW I'm a looney-toon, I appreciate your humoring me and allowing me to post what the voices in my head tell me.

IMO, your a great asset to the forum :D
Im hope to get the chance to take my boat up on Tahoe this summer. It is one of the most beautiful places in Ca.! Maybe we can make a party of it??

I have always thought that Kenny Roberets was the greatest motorcycle racer ever.

Now then, when I was In high school there
was a girl I had a serious crush on and being too shy to talk to her I thought that
I would show her how cool motorcycle riders
were and who knows, maybe she would talk to me. So she's walking down the sidewalk after
school, I see her and attempt to do my best
Kenny Roberts Impersonation Into a 90 degree
turn, hung off and knee out, RD350 screaming,
there is no way that she Isn't going to notice me now...... Well, when the rear end
stepped out and I chopped the throttle shut,
she noticed alright, she noticed a beautiful
highside right in the middle of the street.
It's the most embarrassing accident (1 of 5)
that I have had on the street.
BTW she did go out with me.

I get asked that by everyone but here it is.

I love the Miami Dolphins and Dan Marino is my hero so it stands for quarterback club and Marino's number 13.

Needless to say I want to live in Miami really bad Stacia I envy you :) .

I chose Sportbikeworld because I was too lazy to think of anything better. :)

But all of my friends call me Basil (mainly because it's on the back of my leathers, and that's what most of them see... the back!) :)

I'm real creative. It's my name. The night I first signed in, I was not thinking so this is the result.
My AOL name is bbikerguy (last initial, plus...)

WOW! I never figured this question would generate so many cool answers. Thanks everyone who has posted so far and everyone who will post in the future. I was really curious about some of these and now I know. I was especially wondering about Keith B. NOT!! LOL ;)

My user name works for my two biggest hobbies, thrills, moneypits, stress-relievers: Motorcycles and Off-Roading(4X4 pick-up).

Motorcycles:
go for low: E.T. - Drag racing
go for low: lap times

4X4's:
go for low: gear - low gear in your transfer case - low gears = great climbing :D
