jwf changing Motortopia name to Shaker

By Shaker

When I first joined Motortopia a couple of years ago, I was having one of those days when you miss a loved one that has gone on to be with the Lord...in this case, my dad, whose initials were JWF. So, I used my dad's initials from that point on to remember him and honor him, etc. Well, my dad was the type that he didn't want you moping around for very long, so it is time I moved on and changed my Motortopia name. He was a WWII veteran, served in the USN - CB's in the Pacific. I had the opportunity to take him back to Port Huneme, CA to visit the CB Museum there. What a trip!!!! He and mom were married for 58 years!

Anyway... from now on... JWF is now SHAKER. And Shaker will serve as my CB handle as well.

See yall on the Bandit Run 2010!
Ron

Hey Ron ... Had a blast this past weekend rollin to your home town of Tifton... the people on the " Run" are truly going to be treated to some REAL SOUTHERN hospitality... Guess I was the first to use your new handle... We will have to talk about our friend's urgent need to blow past us.... Guess we will see! The 2000 may prove to be a little interesting competition for our compadre!

The truth is the word "shaker" is what you are described as once you've had me pass by you at 100++ mph. Seriously, you're a good son and I know your Dad was very proud of you.

Hey Ron, that was a very nice tribute to your Dad! I was always wondering what them initials stood for. I changed my name few weeks back too, I thought Pontiac Birds Nest was a little more fitting since I have the 79 now too.
