    Dion
    It's my real name. I think it's silly when people call others - on a ride - by their MTBR handle. Instead of Jeff, Todd, Al, John... it's "TooFast35", "SSRidinPlus", "A45toRide", "JMasterCut29"...

    So when people meet me and they ask me what my name is I say, "Dion". Then they ask me what my MTBR handle is, and I say "Dion".

    Traveller584
    The short version: I'm originally from Richmond, Virginia and am a rabid Southern History afficionado, having studied the War for Southern Independence since I was in the 4th grade. I'm also a biker, and named my first Harley "Traveller" after Gen. R.E. Lee's horse. "Traveller" then became my biker nickname, and I use it now for 99% of the forums I belong to and my gamer tag for online games. The 584 was my badge number when I was in the Air Force as a Law Enforcement Supervisor.

    Trail Ninja
    I built a system of trails for the local middle school mountain bike club. For safety reasons, when I built a trail I wouldn't build an entrance or an exit until the trail was finished and ready to ride.

    The kids would go riding one day and find a brand new trail a couple of miles long that wasn't there the day before. One of the kids said: "Jeez, it must be Ninjas building these trails." The name just stuck.

    Sandrenseren
    My nick has sort of evolved into something meaningless. Directly translated it means "cleaner of sand". The story goes like this:

    My last name starts with strand which in danish means beach. On time at a beach with some mates I flexed my chubby white clyde body and declared that I was a "strandlÝve" which is danish for beach lion meaning one of those super fit, tanned, muscular beach hunks. My friends didn't quite agree and commented that I looked more like a "strandvasker" which translates to beach washer and is danish for a corpse that has washed ashore.

    The corpse nick stuck for a long time, I found it kinda cool and funny in a sort of zombie way and used it as a nick on a number of forums.

    Over the time I got more and more comments about my macabre nick so I ended up changing it from "washed up on a beach", "washing the beach" to "cleaning the sand". Doesn't make much sense anymore..

    rockerc
    When I was growing up in England, the Mods and Rockers were 2 groups that tore up the country. Mods typically rode Vespa Scooters, while Rockers were the greasers and rode Brit bikes cafe-racered up. Think long hair and leather to the Mods' dubious fashion sense and poncey scooters! That's what I thought then, and identified with the Rockers ever since, and as soon as I could ride, got my own cafe racers. It so happens that I have always worked in the concert touring business for big rock bands, and C is the first letter of my name, so I have been Rockerc since the earliest days of having names on forums, email, etc., my first use being early 90s I guess.
    Then Harley Davidson named a model after me... can I sue them I wonder?

    Well my screen name breaks down into two reasons why the name came about.

    The first reason is because I owned a 1996 Kona Lava Dome mountain bike. It was bright orange metallic. 21 speeds. Complete Shimano STX group. To this day I miss that bike and have not found one as nice. So far it is the best I have ever owned. So thatís where I get the Kona part of my name.

    The second reason is because I had a cell phone back in í99 that had the digits 0197 as the last 4 digits in my phone number and I like that number arrangement.
