Silverback - As in silver back gorilla. A nickname my brother called me one day in the gym. It caught on and so that's one of my nicknames earned in the gym.

For all the "hams" out there, mine is obvious. I am an Amateur Radio Operator. KC5SDY is the call sign the FCC assigned me when I was first licensed.

My ex called me a Texas Tornado because he thought I was too emotional. I was just fed up with him being secretive and not listening to me. Come to find out about two weeks after we split he was dating a man. :smilelol5: I was certainly never going to be able to fulfill those needs.

My current bf amazing man that he is takes my storm and rolls with it reminding me constantly that my heart and emotions are what make me the woman he loves. Turns out a tornado just needs a strong anchor.

I chose my name because it has some letters in common with my real name. It is also the name of character from a kid's TV show from my childhood, Noggin the Nog

First name and last name initial. On some other forums my screen name is BigS1975. BigS was a nickname I got when I played Semi pro football and 1975 is my birth year.

I was stationed in Saudi Arabia with the Air Force and we spent most of our weekends out in the dunes watching folks riding motorcycles. I had never ridden a motorcycle before, but I soon got the itch and bought a Yamaha 250 Enduro. Let's just say that my learning curve was very, very steep, ergo "Crash."

Two years back I was Riding down Highway 6 on my 2009 Yamaha R1 (R.I.P.) :cryin and a minivan crossed traffic and hit me, 30 broken bones, 2 months in the hospital and 2 months in out patent therapy and a lot of metal running through both arms, but the name on here comes from the fact that where the gas tank sits on a sport bike is not the best position for a head on wreck. When you hit something head on at high speeds you go straight forward and your pelvis goes straight into the tank. Needles to say I ended up half the man I used to be after this wreck and my buddies started calling me halfsack :rolll after that it just stuck.
