Its the combination of my first name's initial and my surname.

Mohit JUMRANI = mjumrani

I use this username everywhere. I have a bad memory (or so I think) and since its a unique username, my brain is spared.
Even in my two office IDs have a subset of the username and the whole username.

I am a die hard Ferrari fan and whenever you visualize a Ferrari, it is mostly the Scarlet Ferrari that comes to your mind. One of my rides, the good old Bajaj Super was repainted in Red. I used to ride it to office daily for almost six years after which I opted for office transport. This scooter of mine has been the inspiration behind my username: Scarlet_Rider.

Check out the story and pictures of my Bajaj Super here. (Hyderabad Classic Scooter Club (HCSC))

For my like towards RE 500 CC and travel. 500 County Cruiser.

Thought, I can change it later. But FAQ says you cannot

We do not allow any changes to your nickname / handle.

Finally found a Welhamite on Team-BHP.

We guys too have been following a similar format. Just that, since we haven't yet passed out from school, we use our names instead of the "ex".

Therefore I am Abhinav667.

Well I used this name in another forum when Chinkara was at the top of my head courtesy Salman Khan.

So when it came to choosing a name for T-BHP, it was a natural fit.
Especially considering my knowledge about cars is at the same level as Chinkara's in making one, that is, long way to go.

When I first set up my email put my name for it. Ponnappa Ganapathy became pganapathy and that stuck as it was easy for tbhp as well. Easier to remember

Palash987 :

(a) Palash - my first name.
(b) 987 - descending numbers, easy to remember and type.
Combination of (a) and (b) made it up.

My first bike was Pulsar 220.
And i can never forget my 220.It was the reason for most of my smiles in my Engineering.
And I was awed by the fact that just a team of 45 Engineers has built one of fastest and expensive cars in the world.It is Koenigsegg.

So the combination of both the names above is my user name

I love my RE 350

Given the number of bullet riders in the forum, I was quite delighted that the username was still available.

Guess I didn't see the rule which says that I cannot change my username.
But then; I can live with this one.

kingofkings- when I registered with Team-BHP I was still marking out on Triple H's Conan the barbarian style entry at WrestleMania 22. Yes I am a big pro-wrestling fan and Motorhead's rendition of 'King of Kings' was on my mind. Therefore the handle
Putting in the YouTube link for everyones viewing pleasure-

Abhi = First part of my second name (Abhinav)

Abarth = Like the logo and name of this brand. Wanted my Fiat Uno to get the abarth decals but sold it off for the pains I had owning it.
