Mine's somewhat self-explanatory... I found TT in late 1999 and used it for my research when buying my '00WR400 in the spring of 2000. I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and yep, there is 4 inches of snow outside right now.

mayday comes from my last name of May. Since I am in the Airforce and I am a Crew Chief of a B-1b Bomber (Which by the way it dropped close to 8 million pounds of high explosives on the Taliban) my fellow crew dogs thought it would be funny to call me Mayday. The aircrew dont think it is funny! :)

The group of guys I was riding with at the time I got my bike all had nicknames for each other. When I pulled up with my spanking new WR in the truck my best friend said it looked like something a Smurf would ride! I think he was just jealous because he was stuck on a XR400 (the Red Toad)! :) Hence, PapaSmurf.

I was given the nickname Bamster back in the early 80's.
I was riding a yz 465 at the time and they started calling me that becouse of the sound my bike would make when I landed from a jump.

I was nicknamed after the joke about "Bruceter the Rooster". I don't know if that joke is tasteful enough to post here. The 13 is just all about superstitions, bad luck and the way unexplainable things tend to happen to me.

I made up a new e-mail address with the bikes I had that just pertained to bike related e-mails and bookmarks. Pretty boring.

...........this is exactly what I did when given my nick name when I was younger (I'm still a 28 year old kid!!). Narrowly missed by skateboard flying off of half pipe at break neck speeds, with quick cat like movement :D.........

Not a sexy as something like SuperMachoCoolGuy, but hey, what you going to do :)........

Not as easy as it appears. As the proud new owner of a 98 WR400 I discovered TT. When I registered I thought that my bike really rocked. So I thought I'd indicate "Rocks", well so what if I forgot the "s".
of course the rest of the story is that I no longer ride blue and have seen the wisdom of not associating the online handle to any brand of bike. :)
