    What does your Avatar say about you?

    Just curious what fellow members have to say about their avatars, and of peculiar interest, why some use pictures of barely dressed women to represent themselves? I recall a brief period during my high school years when some kids would buy shirts with the Porsche or BMW logos, but they owned neither.

    My avatar: This sign is located at the best local & legal single track option we have - Camp Tamarancho near the "birthplace" of MTB, Fairfax, CA. Its to date the coolest sign I've ever laid eyes upon. I love me my Tamarancho rides.

    OP - Without the details you gave about your avatar, I would have guessed you are a non road riding mountain biker. Even if that is true is says almost nothing about who you are as a person.

    imo, most avatars don't speak much about who people really are. I will have to admit I do enjoy a nice animal snarl once and awhile

    Man, I say bring on the hot chick avatars. If liking and/or showing them makes me gay, then I must be gay and no one told me. Dam this psychology stuff is confusing.
    My avatar is life looking down the trail over my handlebars, care to psycho dissect that for us?

    My avatar on the mustang/ falcon forums is Buckwheat, so I have yet to decide on what to use here as I don't want to bite roadie scum's style.

    I cannot speak to the motives of some who choose depictions of scantily clad women, but amungst images that get my heart pumping and testosterone flowing they top the list along with hotrods, guitars, tools, heavy machinery, sharp objects, things that go fast, and things that go BOOM

    I'm building a bike having a single chainring to try 1x9 so perhaps a play on AZ.MTNS user title is in order that reads: One gear, mixed

    That I like Monty Python humor (which does say something about me) and I found a cool bike related graphic depicting one of the all time funny scenes from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    Enjoy the clip...some beer (or other substance) may help...

    Liking hot chick avatars do not make you gay, however using a hot chick avatar to represent yourself to the world is something totally different, Liberace.

    Pretty straight forward for mine.....Chachi Arcola from Happy Days. I used to call people a Chachi if they just thought they were cool, but really weren't, kind of like how Chachi was on the show. My friends eventually caught on with me calling them a Chachi, so it then became a nickname for me. I added the Giant in front of it, as that is the brand of bike I will have...once it is paid for off of layaway.

    Yes it is. George McFly hitting on Lorraine in the cafe.

    To explain my choice of avatar & username more:

    A "random walk" is a trajectory where the changes in direction can be described by a probability density function (thus the movie quote BTW). In my job I've used these to model mobile user motion through cities for evaluating cell signal coverage.

    I love to hike & backpack. I used to keep a gym bag of hiking clothes & shoes in my car for a random walk after work.

    Years ago I took a comical line riding up a steep, rocky fire road -- veering 90 degrees into some bushes -- and still managed to recover and clean the climb. One of my buddies riding behind me yelled out "Well THAT was random."
