    When I first started buying on ebay in 1998, I had to come up with a name. My grandkids called me Papa Tom (to distinguish from Papa Bill, the other grandfather). I tried poppatom, and papatom but both were taken. Poptom worked. I checked back later and found I could have used just "tom". I like to keep things simple.

    I'm a Fireman and my first day on the job I had a working fire so my Shift Commander Chief (who was big into fire toys) gave me a action figure called "Men of Steel" so my Lieutenant started calling me "Man o Steel" - and since my last name is Steele....... you can figure the rest.

    TheAntipop because i dont like most things that are popular because it gets waterd down by the media and the executives and corporations and loses what it started out with in the first place that made it great.

    its also a song by primus that i liked the words to.

    Fairly self explanatory.

    Croc because we share our space with crocodiles in North Eastern Australia.
    Don't confuse me with The Crocodile Man of TV (?)fame(?) you Americans seem so obsessed with. He's a bit of a dill if you want an Aussie opinion and he will be eaten one day.

    The Avatar.... Pinched it. LOL

    Seems to be a couple of bike nuts here

    When I wrenched on bikes at a Honda dealership, I got almost all of the deep engine repairs and all of the electrical repairs too.

    When I was given the job ticket, the service manager said "ah, lets see you f**king fix this one RoundEye" in a Japanese accent.

    It stuck.

    Brembo, I have Brembo brakes on my Ducati. A good pull on the lever and I can stand the bike on the front tire.

    Faust. comes from the character who (in a nutshell) sells his soul to Mephisto (Mephistopheles........ Satan, in other words), giving up his mastery of science and magic for a life of pleasures and debauchery.

    awsome story. a real thinker's tale. delves into the questions of philosopy and life and such...... a must-read.


    my name is Scott R. Maier, BTW.

    Damn, I feel left out. Never worked in a bike shop, nor could I dream of working on one for money. But I like to keep the guys in the shops busy

    current ride is a 94 HD Heritage Softail Classic. First bike I ever rode was a '78 FLH. Fell in love with shovelheads at that point. Can still spot one by sound alone. OR if it's hot out and theres a bike sitting on the side of the road, it's a shovelhead.

    I'm discovering much in this thread, this is the most interesting one I've read in a long time. This thread feels different, and in a good way.

    A ghost is the spirit of a dead person, and I died a long time ago. Things I've done, things I've witnessed and things done to me have left me soulless.

    The descriptor under my avatar is how I feel about myself - forsaken by God, forsaken by me.

    I take solace in two things: laughter and my son, now 5. The latter keeps me alive, gives my life meaning and purpose, and if he should somehow die before me....well, let's just say it won't be by much. Because without him I'm nothing - a ghost.

    Come here ghost. Let the MD give you a big kiss!

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    //shaking fist at brembo///

    "quiet, you!"

    the story is German in origin and has been rewritten and translated many times sine the late 16th century.

    i actually don't remember which one i read (it was in school), but if you go to something like www.barnesandnoble.com and do a search for "Faust" or "Faustus" or "Doktor Faustus" you will see tons of titles.
