Do you have a biker "nick"

#1 Unread post by sapaul »

Everywhere else I am known as "Stranger" and due to my strict attitude towards training I am also known as Capt grumpy

You?

Sir, or Mr. Nixon...management at work...I'm sure I get called other stuff behind my back, but not too bad I hope.

Madjak was a high school thing that I have used since '97 online...the 30? well I had to pick a number and 1 thru 9 were taken and since I was 27, I figured "almost 30" and went with it...maybe I should have picked madjak70 for the year I'm born? wasn't thinking this far ahead.

Did get called Crazy Wayne by one friend (drunken antics...I'm not telling, so don't ask)...and Butthead by one guy (cartoon characters Beavis & Butthead)

Later.

I haven't been part of a motorcycle club for long while, but if I remember right, my nick was: Stretch

As I am so tall and somewhat thin. LOL

And the position I earned was: Tail Gunner

OOps in SA, that last one has really bad connotations. :oops:

Tall and somewhat thin? My first born, John, is 15. John is 6'2" and growing fast, but he tips the scale at only 120 lb. We have his pants custom tailored. Susi orders them on-line after a lot of work with a measuring tape and they show up in the post in about six weeks all the way from India. She almost always gets an email after an order asking if she is serious and to please verify the measurements which makes her giggle as many of the measurements have minimums which are bigger than the numbers she is getting from the measuring tape.

At his last physical, John was over the 95th percentile for height and below the 25th percentile for weight. He does experience a bit of bone pain in his legs every time he has a growth spurt but he loves being able to look me straight in the eye.

In another year John will likely match your 6'4" and if we are lucky he will tip the scale at 130 or 135.

Safe Travels,
Richards

Damn my imagination, I have this vision of this tall thin man riding a Guzzi behind a pack of bikes, throwing slices of Pizza at the cars trying to overtake

Extra points for mushroom and fried chicken bombs :lol:
