    Tell us about your avatar. What does it mean to you?

    My current avatar is self-explanatory (since I once suffered from an epic fail). I saw it hanging on the wall of the garage at another member's house and I figured it would be a funny one to use.

    It was my first ride out I stopped to take a break and there was this beautiful beam of sun coming thru the trees so I put my bike by if for a picture. If you stop sometimes you can really see the beauty around you.

    My current avatar is character from a Japanese anime series that I like called Ergo Proxy. You actually watch it on YouTube which is where I viewed it from.

    My original avatar on MTBR (2008) was Rocky (my tough, smart, curious and fun little JRT)

    Tell us about your avatar-pa134740.jpg

    I hit a rough patch in my life in 2010. Despite the serious health issues and 2 1/2 years of aggressive treatments I kept riding and tried to carry on as normally as I could. In the fall of 2011 Chris "singlesprocket" took this pic and I posted it in a thread on the Eastern Canada Forum to show my attempt to grow a moustache for Movember. I replaced my Rocky avatar because it represented me better. Rocky died last year at age 18 but his spirit lives on

    Mr Pig started as a nickname only used by my wife. Back in the early days I used to noise her up, as you do, and she would yell 'You're a pig!'. To which I would reply 'Excuse me, that's Mr Pig to you', which calmed her down no end ;0) It just stuck.

    So the nickname is about twenty-five years old. None of my friends are aware of it, it is still only used by my wife, often abbreviated to Pig. In fact she rarely uses my actual name, I am spoken to as Pig most of the time!

    So when I started posting on internet forums I used it, seemed to fit. I've never posted on a forum under any other name and refuse to do so. If the user-name is taken I won't join the forum.

    The sunglasses are a new addition, added on here to differentiate me from another poster with the same avatar. Been meaning to add them for a while though as they are appropriate as well. I have a pair of RayBan Wayfairer sunglasses exactly like those which I've had for thirty years and wear a lot as my eyes are quite sensitive to bright light. I'd like to buy another pair, they are getting loose, but the lager size are harder to find and there are so many fakes and odd variations around these days, I just want black ones.

    I used to wear them cycling until someone pointed out that crashing wearing glass in front of your eyes might not be too clever...

    Mine is a pic of me surfing on Slippery Rock Creek, PA.

    The guy who took the picture, another kayaker, was a really good dude. He died a couple of years after the pic was taken, of a heart attack on the trail beside that creek.

    This is from the Retro Grouch Moto Club, now dwindling away.



    The RGMC has many principles that align with my own attitude towards bicycling, and life in general.

    Some parts of the pledge I remember:

    No Titanium. Period.
    Suspension on one wheel only.
    Nothing in the water bottle except for water.
    Must listen to Neil Young, once a year minimum.
    Facial hair of some type.


    In order to receive a glow-in-the-dark skull to be attached to our bicycles, we had to pledge.

    Mountain bikers are from Mars - Roadies are from Uranus

    by Len Bruffett copyright 2003



    Not all cyclist are cut from the same spandex. Until now it was unknown exactly what cerebral differences existed between mountain bikers and roadies. Neuroscientist Dr. Richard Kopf from Stanford has unlocked the mystery. Through advances in medical digital imaging (high powered MRIs with hyperspectral sensors) and new physiographic profiling techniques, he has accurately mapped "mental function" to distinct regions of the the cyclist brain. The two primary subjects for his report come from two families of cyclist: mountain bikers and roadies. Cyclocross and touring riders are a convoluted mixture that to this day baffle modern science.

    As the two images graphically depict, the primary differences are obvious. Mountain bikers posses a full complement of gray matter ( about three pounds), while roadies usually only have a half a pound. At first glance this open cavity, normally occupied by the cerebrum, appears as a useless void. But the power of the human body to adapt and overcome physical challenges has once again surprised neuroscientist. Dr. Kopf has found that this open space is utilized as a water cistern, much like the hump on a camels back, it stores and supplies water to the body for cellular hydration.

    The absence of a Cerebrum does tend to limit the intelligence found in roadies, but the Corpus Callosum (the nerve endings that normally transfer information between the two cerebral hemispheres) has adapted and transformed it's function. It now serves as the location of their intellect.

    The Cerebellum, which controls movement of the body through space (muscle tone related to posture, balance and equilibrium), is somewhat atrophied in roadies. Lets face it, when compared to the mental requirements of mountain biking, (picking a clean line on single track through rocks and roots), following a white line painted on asphalt is a mind numbing cakewalk!

    Because only a portion of the roadies Cerebellum is used for reflex and equilibrium, other (not necessarily normal) behavior traits have manifest. For instance, roadies have an enlarged segment of the Cerebellum that exhibits a lack of control over the fear of dirt, mud and sand (Tera Phobia).

    The mountain biker brain is not without its disorders. A distinct region of their Cerebrum causes a deep feeling of anxiety if not sufficiently stimulated. This region is defined as the "Purple Ano". If the mountain biker doesn't see, smell or touch enough purple anodized aluminum hardware on his bike he displays irrational behavior and is likely to suffer bouts of extended depression.

    A second region associated with disorder is the Hypothalamus (upper brain stem). This region is responsible for regulating the appetite and body weight. If for some reason the mountain biker has absorbed too much titanium in his body (either through contaminated water supply or fondling titanium hardware at the bike shop), a "twisted" signal occurs between food consumption and titanium craving. The overt symptom is an obscene need for titanium bolts, nuts and components. the mountain biker will suffer delusions, believing that the more titanium he owns, the lighter he will be and the faster he can ride.

    Neuroscience is never absolute. Dr. Kopf observed that the titanium induced disorder occasionally crossed over to roadies and that "Tera Phobia" also appears in some individuals that claim to be mountain bikers. We've all seen those "dirt free" posers hanging around the bagel and coffee houses on Saturday mornings! As science and technology continue to unlock the enigma of the cyclist brain, mankind reaps the benefit. No, this knowledge won't generate world peace. But understanding more about the cyclist brain will help promote a higher tolerance toward those cyclist who display less than normal behavior.

    Mine is from the video game Portal.

    From Urban Dictionary:

    "The cake is a lie"

    Roughly translates to "your promised reward is merely a fictitious motivator". Popularized by the game "Portal" (found on Half-Life 2's "Orange Box" game release for PC, X-Box 360, and PS3). During the game, an electronic voice encourages you to solve intricate puzzles using cake as a motivating perk. When you have "broken out" of the game's initial testing phase (from threat of death), you find scrawls on walls of the innards of the testing center warning you that "the cake is a lie".
    The cake is a lie.

    Mine is of my favorite car I once owned. A 1969' GTO Ram Air IV. The most rare and most powerful of all the GTO's produced. With only 759 made in 69' with the Ram Air IV motor option. I put it as my avatar to remind myself on a daily basis of how stupid I was to sell it.

    Re: Tell us about your avatar

    Mine was from a local picture challenge game, where you'd challenge others to post a picture of themselves/their bike, performing a certain act, or sitting in a certain place, etc... It was a motivational tool to encourage riders to get out and ride in the dead of winter.

    This challenge was to post a pic of yourself getting air. It was 10F out, I was in my work clothes, and I decided to have a go. I parked my car, unloaded my fatty, rode a few hundred feet, hit a small jump, and went home. And I froze my nuts off doing so. Black and white because... well, I don't know.

    WOW! Only $125 K. for a documented numbers matching Ram Air IV. That won't last for long at half the price of what they normally come up for of $300 K. A collector will grab that one up in a heartbeat. If I had the coin I'd buy it. Thanks for making me even more sick to my stomach.

    DJ, where were those pictures taken? I always thought that was a Joshua tree in the background, but after seeing bigger pictures, it looks like a pine tree in a snowy landscape...Colorado?

    So you're saying that a stringer of fish is the same thing as a bucket of fish?

Which is where one of my main mtb trails is located now. The year they were taken we had a cold spell of negative 0 temps for a couple weeks. The first day we broke into the 40s I washed the,GTO. My brother was out visiting from San Diego and snapped those photos after I had just washed the car. The year was 1984'.

It set in motion the steps to find the answer to the unexplained degradation that I had been experiencing for about a year prior. It's significance here is that it was the sole driving force for me to get back on the Mountain Bike that I had had previously given up on years prior, hence the reason my mtbr.com membership started in 2006 and then nothing for years! A year and half after being able to walk again, I'm hitting my goal of 30 miles of techy single track each week and have over 90,000' of climb this year. I'm loving it and it's keeping me in the game of life!

    Cool!! I thought I recognized DBB from your posts. At least you have some great memories associated with your lost love! Better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all

    Does it need explanation?

    Well if you insist, this one was #254, back in about December '89 if I remember correctly.

    Judy, that smile of yours is infectious, glad it doesn't change.

    When i joined empty beer, Tones gave me a hard time about not having an avatar. Being technologically impaired, i failed over and over to find a "meaningful" image small enough for this web site to accept in that spot.

    I finally found a bunch of thumbnail pics small enough and this one was a random pic less lame than the others. TBH, i cant remember how i got it there or how to change it. Pure laziness = good enough, leave it be.

    You are an inspiration my friend. Your story really hit home with me. On July 11th just over two months ago I had a bad motorcycle accident. I flew a Harley off a 200' cliff and walked away. Yes I was lucky enough to have many years of riding experience behind me and the instinct to throw the bike away at the last spit second took over. The bike flew and slammed into some aspen trees and ended up 100' down and finally came to rest against a grove of aspens. My last memory was of going into the sharp left hander after a mile of uphill. And then standing on the shoulder looking down at the bike in disbelief what had just happened. [a memory time lapse] As I stood there for a minute or two stunned a car came around the corner and demanded I get in because he was taking me to the hospital. He talked me into it and as I got in I realized my helmet was still on. As I went to remove it I noticed blood was gushing from my chin. "Oh sorry I'm getting blood on your car" "yeah your whole chin is cut open" "don't worry about it" as he rushed off to the small town in Colorado. He dropped me off at the front door and said good luck and thanked him. Apparently I gave him my sisters cell # because he left a message on her phone. My sister and her husband and my brother and his GF were also riding [ 3 motorcycles total] with me but we all got separated some how. Anyway they came back looking for me and figured they missed me some how and they continued on to Steamboat not too far away which was our destination. By the time they made it to the hotel in Steamboat my nurse had also left a message on my sisters phone.

    I stumbled into the hospital and they went to town on me. With full on X Rays and brain scans. After all this testing I'm laying on the bed and I hear the nurse on the phone ordering a life flight to Denver. I questioned the nurse next to me if that was for me? She said "yes they found two fractured vertebras at C6 C7 and a slight concussion and your going to another hospital". I was then life flighted to Denver where I spent 4 days in the hospital. They stitched up my chin and informed me of my fractured neck. The two outer wings of my vertebra were cracked. And luckily for not structural and they said it would heal on it's own which it did. And I was back on the bicycle on 9-6-14 about a month and a half after the accident. Your story really hit home with how lucky I was and that life is very short and to get out and get some.

    Cafe racer from the golden age. I had something similar back then, and hence the name Rockerc... (Mods and Rockers, nothing to do with my career). The C is the first letter of my first name, and I have had this moniker since the beginning of email, back when the music biz had their own email network in the 80s.

    I was afraid your 30 years of rock concert roady detail effected your memory. But apparently you're spot on.

    A bit late on this response. And yes my memory bank is full of this area with that car. I don't know if you can tell in the photos but the car is in my driveway and just on the other side of it there's a cliff of about 50' off the side of the driveway. The tree you thought was a Joshua tree is actually a pine tree. The Devils Backbone is across the valley about a half a mile. And the trails I ride today on the other side of the DBB were initially made by me and some other young kids riding motorcycles back in the mid to late seventies. Now the trail system is off limits to motorized vehicles and is a well kept very well known multi use trail system. But we were the pioneers of it back in the day.

    Oh wow I was looking at that the other day and thought it was some updated bike part I wasn't familiar with. And I was a bit embarrassed to inquire what part it was.

    So how did you shatter your heel? OUCH!

    Day of arrival, we had driven all day and didn't eat any thing. Got into our room and broke out the whiskey bottle.

    Tell us about your avatar-pc080193.jpg

    between the three of us we finished 3/4 of that bottle before going for dinner, well we didn't make the dinner and I ended up like this

    Tell us about your avatar-pc110220.jpg

    The operation was three weeks later when I got back.


    Edit: It happened because I jumped of a 6' cliff and landed wrong.

    I change my avatar from time to time. My current avatar is an expression of how I've been feeling for about the last month now. It will get better eventually and when it does, I will change my avatar again.

    Please keep in mind that it was other members who figured the Gorn was a grumpy A-hole. Personally, I think he's grinning in the pic.

    Say, GS, since this thread is about avatars, don't you think your avatar should reflect your Yellow Belt rank in Sigma?
    I mean, that's pretty big, isn't it?

    I am just a neophyte on that subject. Just been to a workshop that I was sent to here at work. I am nowhere near the master black belt level to warrant a display of self worth.

    Alright let's get back to dekes little adventure. Deke you passed with flying colors with the photo spread but were definitely lacking in the description of how it happened. This far past that post I bet you thought flew under the radar....Not! I / we need exact details of how it happened a bit more than "I jumped off a 6' wall and landed wrong".

    sorry there isn't much more than that. It doesn't take much to shatter or break the heel. It is only as thick as an egg shell, one can break it by simply falling of the first rung of a ladder.

    I've very late to this thread, but it's a pic of me at a race in Ohio going by the finish line. I keep this pic because of the bike in the picture. It's a simple reminder that you don't need the latest products and that riding your bike should always be for fun. That bike was a steel frame hardtail with an 80mm fork. It rode fantastic and it took everything I threw at it.

    This is the only other pic that I have of it. All this was done at Tremblant Quebec so they just put this one on until I got back to Ontario. The docs there put it on to tight and when the other docs in Ontario removed it, it swelled up like a balloon again.
