    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".

    It means absolutely nothing, so please do not read into it below the surface.

    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.

    Anonymouse = name I've used on other forums, I guess it could mean 'anonymous mouse', no real meaning for it, I was out of screenname ideas that day

    Tech = I work in IT, I'm a tech, someone had already taken Anonymouse here so I added the Tech part

    Also my screenname is retarded. Do mods/admins take name change requests here?

    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.

    Amalgamation of 2 of my 3 given names. Started using it years ago on the first forum I ever joined, and it is pretty much what I've used in all of them ever since. Makes it easier to remember what my 'name' is!

    Remote canyon in Oregon near a 120 acers I tried to buy.

    I made a full price offer but Oregon had such messed up laws at the time I let the deal fall thru. You had to buy the land, wait a year and then go before a board of your peers (???) to ASK for a building permit. I joke you not, what BS is that....

    Meh. It's my name except for the 1. Apparently someone else put my name in first and won. I'm not creative enough to come up with something cool or meaningful so it works.

    Mr (mister) ( Aitch Gee) is how I see my initials as words in my own accent and dialect

    My real initials are H G

    My First name is Hamish

    People I know either call me H or Hamish

    People I don't know call me other things i'm sure, although unsurprisingly alot less in real life than on the www

    When I registered for MTBR I had just purchased a Fuji Tahoe and was still a noob in the sport.

    Got a computer around 10 years ago as my son joined the cub scouts and I got " volunteered" for advancement committee. At same time the wife and myself tried the open marriage thing. Her screen name was Sweet Cheri and mine was 1niceride. A little while later we ended the open marriage thing and picked up biking together. Joined soon thereafter and just used the same name. Given a second chance I would have used something else. Maybe thumbnut..maybe not..never got any dates with that.

    Heyyall = Hey Y'all. Hey & Y'all are things I say. The problem is that people stare at you funny in MN when you say such words. I didn't realize I could have a space between the words when I signed up, so they are all crammed together.

    The other mystery is my avatar. I've heard it called all sort of things. It is nothing more than an artsy picture of a SRAM 990 cassette.

    What I am on my bike.

    It's a perspective thing, I think in terms of riding on a mountain, the bike is just the vehicle.

    Absolutely nothing.
    My old screen name incorperated my initials and last name. One day at work I was bored and googled it. It was amazing and scarry how much info I was able to find out about myself,and hopw un-anonymous it was, so I threw some bolts at the keyboard and this is what came up.
