I'm a Traffic Manager for the worlds largest direct marketer of home entertainment products. It pays the bills and the perks are nice. I have a great wife and 2 kids. I'm also a Field Rep for the VJMC here in Indiana.

Computer stuff



At the moment I work at one of the 2 largest credit card companies in the world. I keep the website up, and help keep the rich people in New York happy (or at least at bay). I administer hundreds of Unix machines of various sorts. Soon enough I will be at home with my new baby girl.

More computer stuff



I'm the I.S. Manager at the Radisson across from Celebration in Florida (a stone's throw from Disney's maingate.)

My day consists of helping people find their files and explaining why they can't open a .jpg using the "open" command in Word. It pays well and I have plenty of time to enjoy my motorcycle.

One wife, one ex-wife, three beautiful daughters, five cats, and a sense of humor that gets me in trouble now and then.

Spent over ten and a half years in the Army with the Nike-Hercules system and then ETS'd to be near my girls when the Ex called it quits and took them back to Florida.

Ahhh... Motorcycles... Aren't mid-life crisis' great! :D

What do you do?



I'm new here but I thought I'd get in on this and introduce myself.

I'm 36, married with three kids (13, 9, and 6). Full time job is mom, but I manage to make it to work 40 hours every week as a meatwrapper. I've been doing it for five years now and the pay is pretty decent. My husband is a truck driver for a large east coast company and we work opposing shifts quite alot so the computer is my hobby latenights.

Other than my new KZ bike habit, I've been showing my dogs for five years or so. I bred my current two, both Siberian Huskies, brother and sister. Their mom left us when they were only 4 months old. Now I'm also doing Siberian Husky Rescue for an organization out of Philly, PA....so I've got three dogs until my foster is adopted. Sometimes I think the dogs are easier than the kids, lol! In the winter I'm a die hard Pittsburgh Penguin fan.

We're just outside Binghamton NY, Teachers...I saw you were REALLY close to us!

Oh, and my real name is Lisa.....

As little as possible! :P

I'm surprised I hadn't read that one yet.

My day job is a tech in the telecom dept for a major western railroad. At times it's my night job too, but not very often. The job is varied and that is good as I get rather bored doing the same thing day after day.

My other job is a farming operation with my brother and at times it seems to be my primary job. But, I enjoy it too as it's something to do besides veging on the couch.

Hobbies include playing with my Linux boxes, doing a bit of hobby programming and amateur radio which led me into my primary job. My call letters happen to be my username here.

No pets, no kids, no one else...

I am currently the President of an offshore Software development company, and we specialize in Practice Management systems...our biggest client is based in NJ, USA and we do all their development.

However, I'm getting really burned out after beeing in this business for 20 years...so starting January next year I will quit this job and start a taxi/buss company.

This September 19, I will be 39.

34 years old, married 8 years, 2 kids (2 & 4).

To pay the bills I'm a Unix Administrator for an American company (Computer Sciences) here in the UK. Been 'doing' computers for about 14 years now in one area or another.

Been on and off bikes, literally, since I was 16.

For a hobby I give up the modern stuff and become a 15th century English longbowman for a reenactment group.

Long live King Henry !!

Mood: Anxious to ride

[*] posted on 15-9-2003 at 09:24


23 years old, B.S. in Computer Technology from Purdue University.

Got out, couldn't find a job, so I worked/work on and off at my fiance's dad's Butcher Shoppe.

Now currently working as a Database Programmer, though hopefully (with a good interview) I will be moving to Project Manager at a Fortune 500 company in downtown Detroit.

Got my first bike a month ago, and loved the two weeks it was running. Now I get to enjoy a long winter of cleaning carbs/polishing/stripping/painting/powdercoating. Can't wait.

And I'm here because I can't find any good vintage Honda boards. So along with the other post, "I will not apologize for what I ride. I ride two wheels and if you do too, then you are good in my book." :P

I am a support engineer for a major telecommunications company. Sometimes I get to travel to new and exciting places. As a matter of fact, I just returned from Baghdad.

I'm also a wife and mother of 2 teenagers -- much harder than going to Baghdad...;)

As my user name might suggest I am a state trooper in PA that just happens to ride a police motorcycle as an added bonus. There are 25 motormen throughout the state out of 4,500 troopers. So I am one of the lucky few. Of course it would be even better if I rode a KZ instead of an HD. But that's what they buy so I'm stuck with it. As long as your riding right?:D

I'm a career soldier, been in the Army for 15 years next month. Done a lot of jobs and been a lot of places since starting but have lived here in N.E. Kansas off and on for nine years and plan to retire here in another five years. Hopefully, that'll be when I really can make the KZ1100 new again and not just get it back on the road which is my current goal.

Been married for 15 years (she doesn't ride) and have two boys, aged 8 and almost 10. Do the whole parent thing, soccer, karate, cub scout den leader, etc.

I have to say, I really enjoyed reading this thread and getting to know everybody a little. Lot's of good people out there.
