  • What's the meaning behind your user name?
  • I think the Fannylions are/were a group of riders…

    I wonder why people see any need to hide behind a pseudonym?

    Not a need but a choice.

    I have fangs.

    I had a dog that died in 2005. A beautiful GSD that used to run with the bike. Best friend in the whole wide world. Can you guess what his name was?

    That's right, it was Trevor.

    It's my nickname in real life.. short for youngster.. cos I'm the oldest Dave in our group of mates.. (by some way)..

    Also it rhymes with junky and has a sort of pun based on the scandinavian pronounciation of the letter J. This is mildly amusing to my mates as I used to have an obscenely gluttonous drug habit.

    Well, my name is Julian and my surname begings with A… Not too imaginative!

    I did get an offer to go ride with some ladies though, which was nice… (Didn't take them up on it though!)

    I think that thisisnotaspoon is a reference to Magritte's 'Ceci n'est pas une pipe'…

    One of my favourite user names on here is anagallis_arvensis – the scientific name of the flower better known as Scarlet Pimpernel.

    Oh, and talkemada must have been a reference to a certain Spanish Inquisitor, but I'm not going to get into a discussion about that particular user!

    It's the same as my real name, so you'd better ask my parents.

    Why not? What does it matter? It's a bit of fun, is all.
    Anyhoo, mine's a character from a book by one of my favourite authors, William Gibson. I would have chosen Chevette, a bike courier from a book of his called Virtual Light, but she's female, and I ain't, so I chose Count Zero from his book of the same name.

    knick name given to me by my buddies from darn sarf. apparently its cockney rhyming slang for miserable ****,

    N.A.Palmer (Andy Palmer), credited as pseudonym B.A.Nana on some albums. It's was a teenage thing, so might be my mid life crisis name?. Certainly not anything suggesting that I'm a joker and a cad, I'm actually a morose bstrd.

    Partly my name and a piss take about my biking abilities…or maybe not a piss take…. 😕

    so trail rat was the name of my blog so it was then made my user name

    in a previous life i was known as sideshow barbie or barbie for short …. on account of a bright pink dh bike and my dreadlocks looked akin to sideshow bob

    Kato
    Member

    A nickname my mates call me. Supposed to be 'Cato' after the crazy manservant in the Pink Panther films, but somewhere down the line over many years it's been misspelt as Kato and stuck

    Mine was on account of my spectacularly good Singular i had at the time.

    A play on the saying flippin heck, as I owned a Heckler, the rest is self explanatory, now I have killed the heckler I will be looking to change my name.

    First thing i thought of.
    my personal fave is nofrontlobe

    After Grossberger in Stir Crazy, nickname that stuck.

    Mc pronounced em cee is the prefix to my surname. At a Grundig World Cup race in the 80's the Italian race announcer listed those with the above prefix em cee Laren, em cee Leod, em cee Intosh. It was around the time MC Hammer. At the time we also produced a bike magazine called Moont.
