Board Names, Road Handles, etc
I saw this done on a Rune site and thought it might be of interest here. A lot of us use road names/nicknames and it is interesting how we got them. Here's mine.
In the mid 80s a freind asked me to help him out running a home construction crew. I was in my early 40s and most of the guys on the crew in their early 20s. One night while having a few beers after work with the guys someone called me OD, when I asked what they meant his reply was "Old Dave" Hence, the OD part.
Part 2: In 2001 I had the honor of being a Road Guard for a group of vetrans riding form California to Washington DC. I had close to 350 motorcycles following me when a vehicle in front of me dropped a wooden pallet. I had no way of avoiding it,instinct took over, full throttle, elbows up and straight foreward. At the next gas stop a lot of the guys come over (after I changed my shorts) to marvel at my feat, no one had ever seen a fully loaded electra glide fly like that. I was told my new roadname would be "Airborne"
A lot of people know me as "OD" and others as "Airborne" so Airborneod was born.
Airborne "Never Forget"
2003 LT-E "HLZ BNZ"
2004 Rune "PNS EXTN"
1970 ZA-50 "JR"
