Hello all: Needless to say, I'm new to this site and have mixed up my screen and user names when I joined. Can't seem to change them around. How does one do this? I've been on some of the other Brit sites for a long time and I'm glad to be here, finally. Looking forward to being a member here. Jim B

Hello, Jim and welcome!

Maybe with only two posts you could go so far as to delete your profile and start fresh? You might also send a Private Message (PM) to one of the Admins (Hello Morgan) asking for assistance.

Hello, Royal: Right now I'm on a 2012 T-100, and that'll probably serve me to the end of my riding days (long time out, I hope). I've owned several Triumphs over the years and my last "classic" was a '70 TR6R that I had from 1979 until a couple of years ago, when a good friend finally talked me out of it..........it went to a very good home. Prior to the T-100, I had a 2002 Trophy 1200, but that finally got to be too much for my aging bones and muscles. I also have a '99 Virago 1100 as a spare bike, which I also keep for my son-in-law to use when he and my younger daughter come up from Florida. I've been riding (my own bikes) since 1969, get to Daytona Bike Week each year, which allows me to ride with my son-in-law down there. He's riding a Thunderbird LT, in case you were wondering.
Take care and ride safe: Jim

HI, Jon: My only problem was my mixing up my screen and user name when I registered.............no problems with posting, for sure. Just would like my "silly" name to be on my posts, that's all. I e-mailed Morgan, so, hopefully, it'll be resolved.

Thank you all for the help, and especially Morgan for getting my silly mistake corrected. Now you all can see why I'm a "class clown"!

Best Regards: JimB

After today's nonsense with losing internet access and then regaining it with the help of a geek squad member I might like to change my screen name to Village Idiot

Bryan, sounds like the standard "ID ten T" error, AKA the ID10T error.

The internet loss was not my doing Tom. Kicking my router back to life with the aid of a help guy on the end of a telephone was not the easiest experience, for either of us.

Hi, "Beez": That's the name I use on some other forums; but you're welcome to it, as well
