Explain your handle!

What does your handle mean (If anything)? Jenya, you don't need to reply to this!

When I first signed on to a sportbike forum (I ran into the guys out riding one day) I rode a Harley (my Sporterster 883 Hugger -- which is for sale BTW). I couldn't keep up with them worth shit, of course, but I like these people and wanted to join their forum, so I signed in with the handle "Slowasscruiser".

Then I got the R6, and one of the admins hacked off the -cruiser suffix.

I'm not slow anymore!

I’m the vivid one

I like bright and annoying colors. If you have known me for a while, you will remember that I had a bright orange GS500, a bright orange F4 and I still have a very bright and vivid yellow F4i. Not to mention my custom one-piece which is yellow, orange and magenta. My 954RR will become slightly more vivid soon, but it’s staying mostly silver/black

6th grade basketball team the coach would yell..."pass it to the BIGMAN" or "I gotta get the BIGMAN off the court for missing that shot" After that I actually ran a BBS and used the handle BIGMAN. But then after a while it seemed gay. So I went with a slight gayness reduction to BIGGY...not to mention, instead of calling me BIGMAN, some people went with BM, so I figure I was due.

Mine's pretty simple. I live in the Chicago area, and I ride an Aprilia Factory motorcycle.

Not very exiting, but it works.

My name was almost near_miss but I though that was to accident prone sounding, I use to like to play with my 929 on the wild side of one wheel, and last year on I-90/94 I was in a wheelie when a guy on a r1 swerved from the far right lane to the far left lane right under my front tire that is in the air. I almost paniced and put the tire right on his back but instead, I took a hard lean to the right and set the bike down in another lane and the bike went nuts, I almost took the biggest spill of my life so far. There fore my freinds call me swerve from what they say that the bike swerved all over the place. I guess lookingat the whole thing a year later I should be called LUCKY.

You dont need a reason to ride, just gas money and lots of time.

Way easy, it's my last name, but what most of my friends call me.

Now the folgers can that an entirely different story.
2003 Ironbutt rally. Less than 24 hours into the event I went down in clay mud of the playa of Gerlach, NV. Getting out of the mud I burned my clutch out. I had no go as I watched my competitors drive past me....grrr.... I got the bike back into town and through the help or scrorning of my tuner I rebuilt the clutch witht the lid of a coffee can. I rode with the folgers can in my bike for 5000 miles before I was back in Minneapolis where we swapped the clutch back for my old one. Here's a pic that Peter Hoogeveen took after he asked if I was ok....grrr...btw, yes that is bobble head jesus mounted on top of my fuel cell

My first name is Blazej (with a line thru the l and a dot over z - and in case you're wondering, I'm Polish).
To write that name phonetically to best of my ability, it comes out to something likes this:

bwa-jay

so, I get called either bwa, or jay. Use bwa for the nick on the internet, cause I'm less likely to find another bwa.

MrBusa... I use to own a Hayabusa and I'm in the market for another one.

Mister Busa is my alter ego. By day, I'm Matthew, a laid back guy, who never loses his temper.

But, while Matthew rides a Hayabusa or is around one, Mr. Busa emerges and does things that Matthew would never, do...Ride fast, swear like a sailor, smoke cigars, and not drink an ounce of alcohol.

I think about that grasshopper sometimes. He just wanted to go for a ride...When my time comes, I'll probably die wanting to ride too.
