Username - Why Did You Choose It!!!!
I wrote this thread along time ago but never got a chance to publish. Since there has been allot of "I'm bored" threads lately I thought I would do my part to keep it interesting, so here is what I wrote months ago:
Obviously a username chosen can be what they say or have some kind of hidden message or they can be just what’s easy to remember as one might do for a windows logon. Others seem like it’s your name or maybe a girlfriend’s name, your bikes name if it has one too you or maybe it’s some username that really means nothing at all.
Since there has been a lot of boredom lately I thought this might get us closer to see more of a personal side and everyone’s personal background and thinking if it applies. I might be wrong so we will see how “usernames” respond.
I am also starting this post because sometimes I wonder if people think I am an atheist or something with the word devil in my username but only I know why I have devil in my name and then started to wonder maybe I am not the only one with a username that has a different meaning behind it for what it appears, so It got me curious on other usernames and their true intent for choosing them.
Here are some examples, I mean what is a:
Big Daddy- is he really a daddy that is big
Captain Jack- are you really a captain in the navy and your name is Jack
Alex31- are you really named Alex and only 31 years old
Vegemite- is this a product that you are selling and does it cure cancer
El Diablo- I know El =”the” in Spanish but what is a Diablo
Vonstallin-are you really German
Austin10rpowers- do you really love the movie that much or is that just your name baby
Turtle-are you really that slow even though you own a zx10
I will start first and if your username has some other meaning to you then what the rest of us see, then post what the history is behind it:
Bluedevil – I am not an atheist because I have devil in my username. The blue part is easy if you look at my Avatar but both put together it is about my last blue zx9r and not the 10 as maybe some might think. I read an article in one of the major magazines when the 9r first came out and it was featured on the front cover as one of the top 10 bikes that will get you in trouble and I believe it had some sexy girl on the back with the 9 doing a burn out with smoke all over the place. If memory serves me right it was the year after its debut when it was featured and first caught my eye as Sport Riders “Worlds first 9 second bike” just before the busa in June Sport Rider issue 1998 which ultimately drew me to leave the Honda world and go Kawasaki.
The main reason I took on the devil part was because in that article they said something about it looking like a devil with bad intentions. I then looked at my blue 9 from the side and that RAM air mouth on 98 and 99 models only that had what looked like a mouth from the side view and the windscreen made it look like wild hair with the fairing being the rest of the face. The bike really did look like the mags described, a devil, with bad intentions and I purchased California custom plates with bludvl tags for almost 4yrs and never changed.
Now of course I could have changed when I bought the 10 but it has the same qualities as what was described as the 9 when it first came out,” bad intentions” and I had no reason to change. So that’s my reason for my username but I’m sure there are others that have personal reasons as well or maybe we will get some real surprises from others. So let’s hear them.
