I have been using my name for about 10 years. It started when I was on a chat where you did not log in-just pick a screen name. My wife had a bunch of stuffed koalas, so I told her I was the rabid one, and used that name in the chat room. The name just stuck.

Rocco is (was) the name of our favorite pet parakeet. He was a special pet with a great personality but he past on about a year ago. I borrowed his name and added bike.

My real name is Derrick. Kommisar Derrick was the star of a long running police drama in Germany so when I lived in Germany my friends started calling me Kommisar. I was last in Germany in 1989 so I used Kommisar89 as a screen name.

Not. I chose to use it here, but my parents gave it to me. If you want to alienate me, call me Chuck. Somehow, instinctively, people know that!

I took the easy way out and just put down where I live (on the East Hill of Kent, WA). Actually, my husband had used that name for something else, and I thought it simple and easy to remember. If I'd known that C & V was going to turn into my favourite forum, I probably would have gone with a username I've used elsewhere--Ms Mixte.

I could always ask to have it changed, but I've gotten used to East Hill .

1994 World Cup message board... I wanted Zorro, but it was already taken. I noticed that one of the first questions asked was "Where are you from?". So... I worked Zorro in, and never had anyone need to ask me that question. I've been using it ever since - but I notice some scoundrel has appropriated it on youtube on me.

Because I never figured that there would be another tractor wrenching, half crazy, worn out jeep driving, rural American, part time farmer on a bicycle forum, and Wes is my middle name.

I've been using Panthers007 for many years here & there. It's of a political nature that many folks know me by, so I saw no reason to change it. Even in this cycling venue. Just got a Panthers letter written up in a local news story about the city here wanting to allow cars to drive through a lovely park overlooking Lake Champlain. And park there, too! Morons - I tore them a new one.

Such is the nature of Panthers - and the press picked up my statement on this matter and repeated it on the front page. Seems the idiot behind this wants a real name or names of those opposing his insanity. I'm a writer, among other hats I wear, in case you didn't notice.

Mine is nlerner because that's my login for just about everything, and the name's Neal Lerner, and I haven't figured out the value of having a mysterious avatar or on-screen persona.

I stole it from a 3-man time trial team that rode fixed in the AL state championships I ref'd one year. They called themselves Team Bob Barker.

Bob Barker always asked you to spay and neuter (fix) your pets.

nlerner, I prefer to use my real name, but that wasn't an option. I mean I wanted to use "Tom Reingold" with a space. I have that name on our town's local messageboard.

He jumbled up the letters of his last name. Reingold became noglider.

The first part of my screen name is the model number of the best motorcycle I ever had, a 1976 Honda CB400. I just added my real name to the end.

I didn't either. Seems that anyone that I ride with ends up calling me "Luker". Real name is "Luke"...I used to race with a guy named David, and we'd locate each other in the pack..."Daaveeed?"..."Luker?"

We raced with a guy from Germany, and he'd always signal a launch off the front: "Ho, Ho, Ho!"

And another guy we rode with would sing Hendrix songs on the steep parts of the climbs...

Oh, yeah. People looked forward to racing with us.
