        Just a straight up handle, nothing really telling except I like to have fun on 2 wheels. Grew up at the end of 2 strokes and air cooled bikes running around on the streets. Just picked up a 98 road king, currently have 3 running bikes and 1 project. It seems there is always something to tend to on the runners so aren't they all really projects?

        Cut my teeth as a gearhead with my brother building and parting out GTO's and one of my closest friends was into his 69 mustang. Now I've got a 66 stang with 347 stroker, overdrive and big brakes along with a 79 firebird project car that should be pretty quick when it's done. Maybe one day I will have a car that can pull the wheels.

        Much like the line in jaws, I'm going to need a bigger garage!

          Bonz came about from my last name Bonser. Picked it up as my sports nickname in HS, stuck with me in college and stayed with me to this day. It's NOT "Bones". Phonetically speaking it's similar to "bonds".

                  Well, no story here. I picked my handle before knowing most guys were using cool handles. I should have been more patient, but was just starting to rehab my just purchased F. I raced motocross in the mid '70's, but only have a handful of 2nd place or lower trophies. Had a blast, though. This is my 2nd F, I sold my first one with less than 8,000 miles on it, I was a duffs for doing that. Oh, well. Happy and Healthy 2022 to all!

                    I've been here since 2003. MartyA was a prolific poster at the time. MartyH seemed a bad idea. I mixed my occupation (heavy jet mechanic) with my name.

                        I don't believe you would do anything to get kicked off !!!

                          Truthfully, I prefer real names to forum handles. There were/are very many people on this forum that I know and have ridden with. I've been to XS East a bunch of times and XS Southeast a bunch more times, not to mention other meetups along the way. I like it personal rather than mystery, so I keep my name in my signature. Are any of you reading this in the Mid South? Let's ride!
