Another reference to being tall. Also, the beast of burden (lifting things) which is the story of my life.

I wanted R2D2 as I use that on other forums but it was taken including a few variants

In my Charity work everyone just called me Joe The Bike Man so we just shortened that

Back in the 70's, I owned a Mobil full-service gas station (when we actually repaired automobiles rather than sold deli sandwiches!) A Corvette customer of mine would always bring me his cars to work on and started calling me "DrDyno" after the "dynamometer," a test stand used to set up racing engines. I've been DrDyno ever since!

Early 70ís living in Del Mar California and riding a lot on my PX10, sew ups donít you know. A certain college student thought it would be fun to get as many free magazine subscriptions as possible. Used to be easy, fill out the post card with some fake information and mail it in. I needed a name and settled on Joe Bikerider. The magazines poured in. Lots of fun. It all kind of fell apart when two guys in suits knocked at the door one afternoon. FBI? No, they were salesmen from a local truck driving school that Joe had apparently filled out a card for! Pretty embarrasing. So I dialed back on the magazines but the name lives on. And I got rid of the sew ups also after I blew out two within 100 yards of my house. $20 each was way more than a college student could afford. Clement
real silk donít you know. The PX10 lives on.

Mine comes from the fact that when I laugh, I look exactly like Sam the Snowman from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. When I used to race motorcycles, I even had his face stitched to the back of my leathers. The nickname just stuck.

I've been told that before. The owner said it wasn't garbage. Think of it as "used food"...

Mad Honk is from back in the early 90's when I worked in retail liquor sales. Most of my close friend called me "Honk", short for my unpronounceable last name (which is by most standards a racial slur). My manager thought my sales techniques were out of the ordinary and one night in frustration called me "Mad" he then added You're Mad Honk!, and the moniker stuck. I've been using it for the last thirty years and it still rings true. Smiles, MH

I got back into road cycling about four years ago after a 25 year absence and noticed just how damned competitive recreational cyclists can be.

I referred to them as CAT6 racers and decided I could be a CAT7 and just enjoy cycling for the pure joy.

The obvious part of my username is that I am an old bloke.

The trouble is my real name is not Gerry.

But I am stuck with it now.
