My initials are CAL so I threw them into Cafe Racer. Seemed legit when I was 17 haha

Finnigan was a name I gave to a girl at a party when I didn't want her knowing my real name -which is Joey-, I got it from a movie I watched that day.  My friends referred to 'Finn' as my inebriated alter ego since.

When I was a kid visiting the seaside, while other kids were building sand castles / whatever - I would be , well - Beachcombing. ::)

My Mother gave me the tag "TJ" - only ever known as "Terence John" when something was amiss / bouts of naughtiness. ! But the Beachcombing thing carried on into adulthood, and my kids soon picked up the same habit. My Mother commenting "where are the Beachcombers" on various family holidays.

When CBs were illegal in the UK [ yes REALLY ] I was one of the first in the Midlands to import rigs and twigs from Belgium, selling them on to my speed shop and Hot Rod customers.

With my family name Sands, it was a given that my handle became "Beachcomber" - that stuck and spilled over into normal life.

Given name is Andrew, but my mom loved Drew.  ::)

About 40 years ago, I was preparing to marry a beautiful blonde of Czech origin. At a large family function prior to our wedding, one of the extended family said if I was going to be part of the 'family', I should have a Czech name. My wife's family name, and most of the rest of the extended family's names, ended in 'ski'. "Armstrongski" wasn't going to cut it, but "Drewski" seemed like a good fit.  ;)

And they all lived happily ever after...   :D

 Luugo was the nickname my Greatgrandfather gave me when I was young, he was full blood Onondaga Native American.. He told me the the roughest meaning in it for English was 'one who seeks trouble' lol

Mine is my last name spelled backwards Slightom.  Didn't even think about it until a friend brought it to my attention back in highschool (about 15 years ago).

Hahaha!  I know your last name and I never made the connection!

Years ago I had a riding buddy in Fairbanks named Juan.  For some unknown reason I started calling him "Obi-Juan" so he started calling me "Ride Solo" and then even started calling my bike the Millennium Turtle.  There is an Alaska MC license plate on the wall of my shop from that era; "TURTLE".
