StevieB,as a derivative of my full name,was given to me when I was 15 by the man who was my best mate then and still is 40 years later.
Spinal is a character in Killer Instincts Gold... a character with which I was unbeatable... I could finish th game on the highest speed & difficulty with a single pound coin in the arcade version... and was rarely beaten in the N64 version....

I like motorcycles and have a Yamaha FJ1200, AKA, a Fudge 1200.:)
S500 (My car) / Colin (My name) ..,,
When I was instructing the others call my Pan European Starship Enterprise or Battle Ship Gallectica or The Mother Ship, and then When I bought another Pan it was Pan Man. Tricked out with a few bits of Hi Viz yellow and reflective blue strategicly positioned it was a given that on any ride outs and training days I was at the front creating space. It amazing how much the average car driver ASSUMES.
Either it is my first name with the initial of my surname and an extra y,
or it is because of my sunny disposition.

It was also my username on IRC many years ago, and people instantly knew that I was in the UK because of the weather.
