Grooveski

You wonder sometimes where folk get their usernames from.
...so for a giggle I thought I'd wonder out loud.  :D

To get the ball rolling:

Groove Champion - Auto Vigilante!  8)
Star of what I'd still rank as one of the most entertaining games I've ever played - Interstate 76.
My heart's racing just looking at a screenshot of it.    ;D  Fond memories!



Was the first game I ever played online - when you connected the first time everyone forgot to enter a name, joined as Groove and got a slagging for it (like <unnamedprofile>  :P )
...so I popped back out the room, added a few letters(always did like names ending in ski - kinda cheery sounding) and popped back in again, thinking 'I'll dream up a good username tomorrow'...

...and here we are - 20 years later.   ::)

Napalm Nick

When I met Linda Lusardi she said I was hot stuff so...... ;D

Then I woke up...

Vietcong : First game I played multiplayer, and went on to form a mutli country clan, competitions and all sorts of great fun. Learning server hosting and commands, writing missions every week etc etc. Made and still have some good friends from it.

I hear people are still playing Vietcong even now. An amazing game. So the username is a tribute to those times, always used it not changing now, even if dated and not particularly PC.  Certainly not disrespectful some things should not be forgotten.  :(

matty0l215

Easy!

My name is Matty, 0L215 was a random selection of character beacuse the username Matty was already taken on Runescape (old Web Java based MMO) but I gave that up years ago and the name just stuck :P

Alone

I used to be in a music band. When I created a song that wont be part of our music, I recorded them as Alone.
When I started to play GPBikes in beta 7 (I came from gp500), I saw myself so alone, no AI, no internet at home to play online, that reminds me those tapes, so that's my reason :)

Seajay 64

For me, my main initials are CJ. I did a bit it club racing in the north of England and some in Scotland between 1960 to 1964. Then in 1964, on a road bike, Ducati, a car hit me and I lost my right leg. So that was the end of motorcycle racing and riding for me. That said, the day I came out of hospital, my palls whisked me off for a camping weekend, and to cut a long story short, I illegally got on to a motor bike, a 350 BSA, not mine, but owned by a pal, and rode it down a very winding road in the English Lake district, changing gear by bending down with my hand. The doctors had told me that I would never ride a motorcycle again. Me, I had to prove them wrong. I did !!!

My other passion in life has been sailing, and I am a fully qualified commercial skipper, and for the last 30 years have been involved in delivering sailing and power vessels from anywhere to anywhere world wide. Now at 74 I am retied from professional sailing ,but still keep my hand in with short trips.

So Seajay represents the initials of my name and 64 is the year I nearly died, but together they bring me back to one of the most happiest periods of my life.

Thank you for reading

Seajay 64

Gzehoo

My real name is Grzegorz, but sometimes it's also pronounced Grzechu and I decided to write it as Gzehoo. This "-oo" should be read the same as in "Yahoo".
At this moment inactive.
I lost any motivation to play GP Bikes :/

Boerenlater

Hello Gregory :D

Boerenlater is Dutch for someone who burps. Because when I was a teenager my sister called me that.
Almost twenty years later it's still my online nick.
I stopped gaming (and GP-Bikes)

JMTRacing

I just took my initials and put racing at the end  ;D
I'm still a kid, and I ain't using that as an excuse
I just got a lot to learn and that's the truth

KG_03

davidboda46

"Gonzo", cause I'm a journo and I like the work of Hunter S Thompson and his Gonzo journalism. #46 is obvious. Can't remember why my name on the forum isn't Gonzo46... I probably fucked something up when I registered. Anyways, David is my first name and Boda is my last so...

Cheers,
