I was reading through introductions and there is a new guy here who calls himself "Joewasaki." I immediately thought, "Hey, that's catchy!!! I like it. There have been several here that I really like over the years. Overall, my very favorite is "c'monSTART" and to this day, every time I see one of his posts I get this great visual of a guy sweating his balls off in the garage after a hundred tries with the kickstarter, BEGGING his bike in frustration in hopes to go on the ride with the guys tomorrow.

What's your favorite nickname?

Ha! cmonSTART was one of my first bikes I had before I really knew what I was doing (it was a free bike). In hindsight the issues it had weren't really that difficult to solve - I just didn't know much then. I used to yell that a lot at the bike.

I try to post helpful mechanical advice when warranted here, but I do think it's ironic someone might be taking mechanical suggestions from someone named "C'mon, START!" Hmm..

As for names, I always like Joe6pack (spelled something like that.) There are a few other clever ones I've seen over the years which I can't recall at the moment.

I like em all, till I don't like em.

Usually involves them arguing when they don't follow a simple instruction and then mad at us for not having the magical answer.

I knew there was a good story behind that name!!! Isn't it funny how things seem so difficult when you are new and then a month later you're like, "What was the big deal?"

People do ask a lot of us at times here don't they? There have been a few times when you could tell that whoever was writing was in an absolute panic and couldn't understand why the whole world didn't stop for them.

Favorite? I don't really have one favorite but a couple of them come to mind...

I agree with Fiskenmorder. cmonSTART is a good one. I can just see a guy screaming at his bike while throwing tools and yelling C'mon START DANG IT! That was me more than once when I was a kid.

Eye_m_no_angel is another good one... Could mean at least two different things that I can think of.

Yea, Eye's name can make you wonder what exactly he means. (Actually he is a *****cat, just don't tell him I told you)

I've mellowed out a lot in the last 18 years..

That's close to the image I get from his name too. :coffeescreen: I always get a smile when I see it and it makes me think of that.

Of course, Fish Killer is pretty good too.
