OK, mine's pretty easy, it's my name. Duh!

But there are a lot of people out there with unique user names. What does your username mean and how did you come to choose it? And if you don't mine, give your real first name.

Hi, my names Rob, and , well, um....sigh....I'm an addict. Yes, Yes, I know, I'm addicted to riding mortorcycles......

Lupi = Last name minus a few letters. No not derived from the "Canus Lupis" that eveyone guesses! I've had to do more explaining on why I like tigers SO much, but have a wolf derivitive for a nick.

I've had this nick since i was in high school. Helll, most people call me "Lupi" and never remember my real name! Which is fine, cuz I loused up my family when I switched from Bob to Rob. Just ask Champ!

Crazy:

Real name Brian. I've been riding since I was 18 and I'm closing in on 28 now. Nickname came within the first couple of years riding. I was one of the punks w/o any gear weaving in and out of cars, lighting it up at every light, hangin' out at Doddy road 20+ runs a night, a different chick on the back every night. After a move I made racing a Z28 on a two lane highway some of my friends just stopped using my name. Two other guys named Brian used to ride with me all the time also so we needed a way to differentiate. Everybody started calling me "Crazy". For along time I never heard my real name, it was Crazy this and Crazy and that. My wife called me Crazy up till the point we got engaged and she figured she better know my real name so she could tell her parents.

Anyway, became a little more responsible since then but names kind of stick with you.

Doc came from a tight knit circle of friends in college. Everytime they had a friend over that I never met, they introduced me as Doc. I ended up kind of like Crazy's name. Everyone was calling my by Doc and not Chris (for those of you that didn't know ). In fact, most people I got to know within that circle of friends only knew my nickname and not my real name. So it stuck.

Oh, they named me Doc for a couple of reasons. I was a biology major at ISU taking all the pre-med courses, but getting my teacher's cert. That and the fact that when I would get drunk I started talking science and biology shit. Luckily, that wore off

Now, I welcome the name because I know I am among friends when I hear it

I hate generic names. I have a red bike, so I figured cherrys are red, then I needed a second word ot go with it. The first think that came ot me was "picker". So I came up with "Cherrypicker".

If I had realized at the time it would become my nickname I might have choosen something else, but it works I guess and it's easy to remember.

Two of my Uncles owned Chicago Disposle until about 4 years ago. I have alot of friends that either own work for or have garbage biz in their family.

Andy told me once that the Rabbit nickname came because he had picky eating habits and eats a lot of salads.

ok, my name is Gautam. Gotham City (its pronounced the same but spelled differently) is where Batman is from. When I used to (and still now) when i introduce, or am introduced to someone, they always ask, Gautam, as in Gotham City? and i always say yes. Its funny because I used to hate when people would ask me that when i was little, and now i just play off of it! Also, I can pretty much go on any board, or anywhere where i need a username, and not have to worry about my sn having already been used.

Well my name is BABETTE but people wouldn't remember it plus a screen name so I opted to stick with my name. It suits me on the site anyway.... plus they remember the screen name, they remember my name, hopefully

Although people still mess it up spelling-wise (even on here ) so go figure.
