    Um...it's my name ;) My mtbr name is more creative. aword4you. I got it like the night before I left for the dorms in college. I called AOL to set up my own account and the guy was like "What do you want your screen name to be?" and I totally hadn't even given a thought to it. aword4you just came to me. The A is for Allison. My maiden name is Word.

    Get it? :-s

    I was a BM2(SW/SAR) in the US Navy. BM2 means Boatswain's Mate, 2nd class. (E-5 or the equivalent to a Sergeant). Pronounced "Bosun's Mate" which for some gets shortened to "Boats", a nickname that is bestowed upon Boatswain Mates that know and do their job well. It is a nickname I still carry and am called even though I have been out for a couple years.

    The SAR comes from the (SW/SAR) which are additional specialties in the Navy, this one meaning Surface Warfare/Search and Rescue. The Search and Rescue swimmers in the Navy are the sea/air/land rescuers. I did maritime SAR and combat SAR. Mostly pulling downed Marines out of harms way on land, downed pilots and man overboards at sea. We were deployed via small boats, ships or helocopters.

    Hence: SAR_boats

    Gene is my name, "genus" is what my close friends call me since high school. "mtbkr"-self explanatory, "5" favorite number. Hey SAR boats, I served 6 years between 83-89, I was an AD2(aircraft powerplants mechanic). I figured your's had to be Navy related.
    GO NAVY!:beer:

    I lurked for a while on this site and it's obvious the youth are in the majority. Since I just passed the big four-five and my daughter is heading to college, I figured I qualify as an Over The Hill Rider. 8-[

    Pretty obvious

    A nickname that was given to me one summer a few years back after having a few too many crashes, but with a “k” for my first name.

    just one of many nicknames growing up while playing sports

    anyway i was always a bit younger and smaller than the guys in my neighborhood and played ball with but could keep my own

    Usually i would go unnoticed until i scored a goal, made a steal or a hard tackle, etc. then someone would ask who that little guy was and they would say, "it's that kid A something" (Adam).

    Yes, i am well aware of radiohead as well and I'm a fan (saw them 3 times in show) but it was mine first ;)

    now that i'm a wee bit older, i'm still a kid a heart (although sometimes too much according to my wife)

    Many many moons ago I rode on an Ellsworth Truth. The first T in truth rubbed/scratched off. Soon I named my bike Ruth. Then the H rubbed/scratched off as well.
    Truth became Ruth. Ruth became Rut. Rut stuck, so I started riding in the ruts on the trails. Now I'm either known as Rut or akaRut. Oh some people actually call me Andy too.
