"mxslick" : n. Nickname given by factory motocrosser to rider of an old 1978 YZ125 Yamaha; racing in 1989.

I got this from no other than Larry "Big Bird" [he was tall] Ward when he saw me riding the aforementioned bike at a long-gone local motocross track. He told my roommate that I was "slick" on that old piece of [expletive deleted].

It is also my email name at both and

I just use my real name just cause I did. [Linked Image] I mean who could make up my name. Harold! Just kidding I see another Harold out there! My handle use to be Caper from the old days at *P* but when I was on Joe'T's baord we used our real names. I have nothing to regret about what I speak either, so, I guess I will still use it for now.

I first registered with my real name some years ago. Then one day I saw one of my customers on another forum asking questions about a bid I had given her. At that time I decided to re register with a handle. I just didn't feel comfortable knowing a customer could go online and see their electrician asking trade questions, some just wouldn't understand. The only thing I regret is when I re registered I lost my longtime member status.

Like this one: How many "Scott's" (or variations there-of) are there on this forum?

When I joined in 2000, there was already "a Scott" (Scott35) here, so I took electure...a nickname given to me by the crew that I used to rant at about Safety and the Code.
They'd heard the term during the 2000 Presidential race, and started using it for my "soap box" discussions [Linked Image]

I'm still electure (Scott). I might even have the record here for the highest # of incorrect answers in posts!. I'll face up to it though. I'm not going to change the name.

Scott35 (after his age at the time) is not still 35, though. [Linked Image]

Iwire, of course that counts. Bobscott

BTW, Bjarney is also really named...well, you know [Linked Image]

This wasn't a rant or anything, I was merely asking the question, why.
So that's how Scott35 came up with his username.
Interesting!. [Linked Image]
