When I was 14, I used to work part time at a tavern in the Mississippi River town I lived in. My favorite regular was a fun-loving truck driver named Leroy. He always called me Chaindrive 'cause I went everywhere on my old beat up '72 Yamaha 125 enduro, sans license of course, but the cops never could (wanted to?) quite catch me... (washed a lot of dishes to buy that!).
It had a broken kickstarter and a stretched chain that liked to fly off, and duct tape for upholstery and was my pride and joy. Constantly messing with it! I also earned extra money servicing Leroy's truck on weekends. He didn't really need the help, but I never had an old man and he never had kids, so we both kinda filled in, and Chaindrive was my name.

When I wound up a truck driver many years later, it became my CB handle. Seems to work here, too. :)

I decided to use my first name because I participate in a few vintage groups and I use my old (1978) bike's name Sachs250wr. But since I got back to serious riding :D, and I made my mind about what kind of machine I will get (the big blue one) :). I didn'nt want to bother the new generation with old souvenirs :D,

My name, easy enough. Actually when I registered I wasn't paying attention and put my name in the screen name spot. I usually go by Seal Clubber. You may have seen me on the Rogue Spear and Mech warrior game sites. Or maybe not.
P.s. Can I change my screen name?

OK... since I missed the one on the 250 side I will play here. Since I can remember I have raced everything I've owned. Hence the name "racinace" It works for me.

My story isn't quite as interesting as some of yours,

My last name is Fry. A co-worker (now my supervisor) started calling me Fryboy and it stuck.

Since every other clever name I could think of was already taken I gave up and just put in Fryboy.

I had to make my first post that night :)
