User names

How did your user name come to be. Some of them are obviouse and some are hard to figure out Like Stewarts for example how did you come up with that one  :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Just kidding but seriously I look at user names and wonder, is it just something you pulled out of your butt or is it actually a nick name that your buddies stuck you with like mine is, or does it have some sort of significance.  BDI comes from a buddy of mine, I am always making things so he decided I should be BDI for Bryan Davis Industries.

In my youth I got my nick name playing with gun powder and beer.  Long story short, after the catastrophic incident my friend/neighbor started calling me Danger.  Then when StarCraft video gaming on the Internet came along someone had Danger so I went with Danger4u2.

When I first started mucking around in the internet I was very aware of the amount of information I was willing to give out to sites so just called myself demographic statistic (as in the kind of information some sites collected) to be awkward and after I realised that bike forums dont really collect too much in the way of information it just stuck as it was easy to remember.
I don't give out my e-mail address to sites that i think might spam the hell out of my e-mail box either and recieve almost zero spam.

The odd bit of it seems to be generated on some random e-mail address generator and gets through but its so small an amount that I am not really bothered.

Regards scott.

 My name is John, I like to go fast . ( sounds like a twelve step program)   I bought the 04 KW500 because it was the fastest bike available new.  I ski very fast and I try to ride the KX as fast as I can. Johnniespeed is a name that fits me .
Spring is here and the Mighty 500 wants to ride.

What up peeps, long time no see/hear!  Been monkeyin' around with somev-twin cruisers lately so I have neglected the KX club.  Was out at Dumont Sand Dunes over Halloween and was the best weather and company in a long time!   KX5 was running primo and didn't let me down, had alot of one wheel action over the weekend.

Anywayssss,  Furious is what I named my KX5 after Arigato made me think of a name for it.  Of course because the bike is "Furious".  Sly is my nickname since childhood and what my co-workers call me as well since my last name is "Sylvester"

well, at my work we have to comply with federal(msha) mine safety and health rules. so when we work on equipment we have to apply a personal paddlock on the power source with a tag stating our name. i always sign my name at work as M.D. Grover so the guys at work started calling me "maddog" because of the "M.D." . it stuck so i started using it as my username in the internet. the username maddog was already taken on alot of sites so i changed it to "maddoggy" hence my username.    Marty aka MADDOGGY

Back in the late 90's I played this online game called rainbow six.  I played a lot and ended up joining a "clan" or group of people that play together against other "clans".  Our clan was called Wild Kingdom and we all had animal names like Platypus, Toucan, SeaSlug and so on.  Since then I use that name for anything internet related and I am not Australian.

I got Arigato because it means please and thank you in Japanese.  When you eat as much sushi as I do, you end up saying it a lot.  It's also a very polite word as in "Arigato, may I finish roosting you now." :mrgreen:
