Default Introductions

OK... Since we have a number of new members, we've decided to start up a new
Introductions thread.

We have an old Intro thread and some bike gallery threads, etc and thought it would be a good idea to start anew and merge them together.

New members and old, post your specs so everyone can get to know you a bit better. (The first six entries are the Moderators of this site). You can copy and paste the template below, and add your own stuff to it.

Please post your data only to keep thread drift to a minimum.
EDIT: All welcoming posts and comments will be permitted for two weeks, after which they will be deleted from this thread.
