    How did you get your login name or nickname?

    We all see some interesting names on here. This thread is to explain why or how you got that name. So here it goes!

    Harbone is a nickname I have had since Jr High. I used to do a lot of crazy stuff on BMX bikes and motorcycles when I was young. Big ramps, jumping over cars, creeks, into lakes, etc. Well I bit the dust more than once and never broke any bones, my last name being Hardesty my buddies just started calling me "hardbones" and it stuck for years. On my first car I decided to get personalized plates, hardbones wouldnt fit so I abbreviated it to Harbone and added 66 for the year I was born. People who did'nt know me just started calling by that name anyways. 30+ years later it still sticks.

    As close to "Normal" as I can get...

    Back in the early 80's I was mud racing on the old horse shoe shaped tracks , I built an early datsun with a big block chevy in it , all the other trucks were full size and huge compared to mine , there was alot of contact in that sport back then , you had to have a co-pilot to help you see where you were going ...I asked a friend of mine to ride with me and he refused , he said : you had to be a MANIAC to build that thing not to mention drive it or ride in it...so I decided to paint MANIAC on the side and everybody loved it , and like you said , it has stuck for over 25 years. That is the only name some people know me by,,,,,Paul

    Uhhh, mine is kind of a long story. Basically, I ran from the cops on a scooter & broke my arms... both of them. My name at work became Scooter at that point. It was "Rigsby" which was my G-Pa's last name (he was a Frog Man in WW2).
