Just a suggestion to those who put their real names and complete date of birth in their bio section, I'd change the date of birth to age.
Theft of identity does happen. Althought the majority of us on this board are here for the love of riding, there are some who may gleam info on this board for their personal use.
Even if you don't think they can get your info because you didn't put down your complete name, well guess what, when you meet someone for a ride, you might tell them then. Or they get your plate number and access it that way. Now with your birthdate, they've gotten one more bit of info.
Not to be paranoid but prevention is better than trying to explain to the bank that you never applied for that credit card which is now maxed out at $10 grand.
