So from time to to time I see some rather strange “Handle“ names of forum members. For instance, a bunch of random letters and numbers strung out together. What’s that all about?

Some like “LBM17Z71” tells me they own a 2017 Laser Blue Metallic Z71. That once was my Handle. Then I traded for a black 2018. I could have kept the same Handle but decided to trade my name as well.

Although I’ve lived in over 9 different states I was born in Maine. If you’ve ever been to Maine you might have heard the following. If you weren’t born in Maine, no matter how long you’ve lived here, you’re still from away!

I was born in Maine so I figured I could claim the handle MaineMan!

What’s the story behind your Handle?

Gusto!

My initials. Followed by underscores, because when registering on many sites, simple text user names are often taken already.

It is what the FCC knows me as :wink2: (my Amateur Radio station call sign).
Call signs are restricted to specific standards with only certain letters and numbers being available in certain configurations. I was able to get my first name and last initial issued as a vanity call, substituting in a number for a letter to fit the required criteria.

Da Tax Man - it keeps my Christmas card list short, but at least I have a Beatles song written about me!

I had an old login from 2012ish but it would not let me in, so I re-registered and every name I could think of was taken. So I put Hunter cause I hunt more then I fish and put my age..my grandson just calls me "awesome"

93Duc - 1993 Ducati 900SS, my first sport bike. Also it’s brief and seldom (if ever) taken.

The last year they: were built by hand and then test ridden around the track at the factory, had a fantastic hand crafted tool kit.

My handle comes from Dargel Boat Works, in Donna, Tx. I grew up in South Texas and my father always had Dargel boats. We fished the Lower Laguna Madre, between Port Mansfield and Port Isabel.

My name is Kevin and I own a Canyon... I get the Canyonero song (The Simpsons) in my head whenever I go on bumpy dirt/gravel roads. :D

YouTube Canyonero if you need a laugh today.

Cheers.

Uh, Bill in Tucson. My usual UN is pogo, but when I signed up I misread and thought it wasn't available.
You can get it changed. Do a search. Or someone will provide link.

But, I like Tucson Bill.
