Legal Name Change

After doing some thinking, I decided to change my screen name here. Since I haven't had my Nomad for well over a year, I decided that I needed to make a name change that was more appropriate. Although I enjoy riding my wife's 900LT, my main ride is my 650 VStrom which I got so I could explore some of the dual sport possibilities up here. So I switched it to Strompilot, which reflects the bike I ride and the fact that I am a pilot with a commercial license. I no longer fly, but that doesn't change things.

How many of you have done that same sort of thing with your onscreen name?

"Don't sweat the small stuff---it's all small stuff"

'09 650 VStrom

There are quite a few who have done exactly the same thing. That's why I try and steer clear of motorcycle-esque names. Hehe!

Have thought about changing mine since it's not at all creative but didn't know if it reset your entire history. Now that I know, may try to come up with a new one.

PM me if you do in fact decide on a change.

I'm terrible at such things - that's why I just go with what my old lady has called me since getting hitched to me. A "grumpy old bear."

Mine is a nickname I was given by my buddies a few years back, taken from a movie character. I think some of them have forgotten my real name and only know me as Graybush.

I don't think it matters what I ride, I will still overthink things so I think I'm all set.

I also switched to a Vstrom 650 this year and it has been a really fun bike so far. I do miss the lower seat height from the Vulcan, but once I'm rolling on the Vstrom it's hard to convince me to get back off.
