    How did you come up with your handle?

    Seeing more new people here and the names they come up with I have to wonder if there is some special meaning to some. And to some well??? no idea what were you thinking???

    For myself,, I was out for sushi one nite came home got a phone call to check out this site and filled out all the boxes ...feeling a little drunk just tried a few names then entered Mr. Sushi...said it was taken then just started adding letters till it accepted my name....Boring eh!

    what does the 112 mean for adam? or Sliver?,,,,5th gear..hahah ....etc...

    I was originally Silent Scream, which used to be one of my favourite songs. Then I got sick of it.

    I don't think I need to explain my new one...

    It's the nickname that was given to me many years ago by my buddy Brant. He always called joints jaybos, and it just sort of transfered to me.

    Given to me a long time ago ... and then just rejustified by my actions ever now and then. ie. like accidentally trashing the stove on the BCSB ski trip

    Plus, its a play on words with my last name ... so in a way I was born with it. I use it all the time at meetings and business conferences and nobody seems to forget who i am

    Yeah, I've always loved your handle. Very creative. Still don't know the details of your accident. Have to ask you one day.

    My handle is pretty self-explanitory. When Rick passed away I went on this site for the first time to read the thread about him, I felt I had to sign on and defend him against the people who had no idea how the accident happened.

    Since then, I have met some great people on this site and it has allowed me to stay connected to people who love to ride motorcycles.

    I guess legally I am no longer a wife...but never felt like changing my handle over it.

    Inbetween bikes now. Thanks for bringing up bad feelings.
    Fotura was a camera I use to have made by Canon. Was looking for a nickname for a game and I was looking around and saw the camera. I liked the sound of it and have been using it ever since.

    I hold probably the dumbest handle for the dumbest reason...

    simply: i was starting out in motorcycling and a dozen attempts at other names were already taken. I chose this one out of frustration....

    ..... if i chose one now, I'm sure it would indirectly have something to do with my new son.

    hind sight is twenty-twenty right?
