Writing it out makes me sound like an odd bird, but then again I am an odd bird. For reasons beyond me, years ago when I used to imagine myself riding a motorcycle Janet Jackson's song "Black Cat" was always the sound track. So when I finally got around to getting my license and signed up for the forum it was the first thing that came to mind.

I never got around to expaining my username so here goes...

I'm VERY much into working on and modding 1st generation (04'-06.5') Scion xBs. In Japan the xB is called a bB. In the import world of cars modding and working on them is called "tuning" so I'm bB2NER.

Here is a picture of my bB.

I've had a couple of nicknames from work, 1911 and D.
My name is Marty and there was a guy I worked with who would greet me with "Yo Mar-Dee!" Later shortened to just D.

When it comes to fun, nothing beats any motorhead activity.
I like my old Buicks. Around here there's a '57 Special, three running '61s, two more 61's for parts, a '76, a '98 and a '00. At my lodge or when I walk in to my local parts store they always call me the Buick Guy or Mr. Buick.
Since this is a fun place for me, I went with Buickguy.



bB2ner, thanks for bringing this thread to the top!

bB: I was wondering about your name recently--I thought it might be something musical like "b-flat tuner" ;0)

Mine is a simple play on my name.

Yes you did! :lol: Hit the search button and use "Scion" as the key word and all posts by you. :lol: Might want to start Dilantin before the Alzheimer's gets too much worse. :lol:

Doesn't matter; now the new folks know it, too. :mrgreen:

97 Old School:

if you're really looking for a well-done Old School look, give Cagie's bike a good look over. It looks fantastic in person. :mrgreen:

bah--- don't sweat it! This _is_ one of those "have fun with it" threads, right? :lol:

Who's the guy in the picture, because there's no way he's old enough to have been married for 23 years! :lol:

:lol: Isn't a stock Rebel pretty much OLD SCHOOL right out of the box?
Air cooled, carburetor, no significant electronics, 1970's styling.
Anyway I digress.
"Duckster" is one of those obvious names that needs little explanation. Translated literally it means "one who Ducks" or in my case rides a Duck , (or in my case 2 Ducks).

Sarobin is just an old name I had from role-playing when I was a kid :P Kinda geeky, or maybe just more than kinda geeky. Its a hybrid between my first name, Sara, and the bird "robin". I have a few online friends that usually call me Robbie, and most people in real life call me by my last name, Baxa.

SMLE = Short Magazine Lee Enfield. My favourite rifle. I just got in the habit of using that on multiple fora for convenience.

Just joined the site here and just saw this...figured I'd revive an old post.

I call my bike Skewts. I'm a forensic investigator and was on a serious crash call with a couple of the departments crash team members. I was telling them about getting the Rebel and they started teasing me (all in jest..they are good guys but they do ride the big bikes for the department). Anyway, one of the guys said, and I quote, "You may as well just get a scooter." And the rest of them started calling me Scoots from then on. I spell it Skewts because Scoots was already taken with dmv when I went to get my tags.

Mine is from the movie Alien with Sigourney Weaver. In the movie she has a cat named Jonesy.

I usually use ugodableev. I grew up believing in the melting pot of American society and everyone was welcome - Italian, Irish, Polish, Jewish, Catholic, whatever - who cares. I started to notice the hyphenated Americans seemed prouder of distant heritages instead of the community where they lived - naming their kids Tyreeta and Laquanda (actual names at our grocery store). Why should only they have African names since if you go back far enough we all come from the Garden of Eden (or descendants of apes) which as I understood generally meant humans originated in Africa. So - I wanted my own African name and I came up with Ugoda - sounded African enough to me. And being an optimist I added bleev to the end as in "you gotta believe". It's only a coincidence that I took my wife to Mets games when we were dating.

it's funny; I grew up believing in the same thing, and have also noticed the hyphenation determination to make sure that we can't quite accept each other as being the same. As a result, I've begun to hyphenate myself on forms when it says "other," through the simple expedient of claiming that I originate from the "Diminishing Republic." :lol:

Eh, it depends, some of us do it because it's more accurate. I'll often times even completely drop off the American because this isn't my culture. I'm far more German than I am American even though I've spent less than a week over there and decades over here. It tends to drive vets nuts, as it's somehow disrespectful to label yourself based upon culture rather than citizenship status.

As for the topic at hand, it's short for Henry Edwards, don't know why, it just does.
