        ScooterIndo was the name of the classic scooter restoration business that i had in Jakarta. I finally closed it up last year as the market has dried up now and there isnt the profits to be made anymore but i have retained the name for scooter forums, email and on here of course, I have also retained the logo of the caligraphic scooter which was actually created for me by a very gifted artist friend of mine from Canada named Ryan Dineen whom i met in Bali years ago.

        All of the 146 Scooters that we built and either exported or sold locally had the ScooterIndo name and logo on them inside the front left hand legshield. So next time you see a very nice classic scooter on your travels and see the logo shown in my Avatar, its one of mine.

              (Cut 'n paste from a past thread)

              "Puspawarna" is usually translated from the Javanese as "kinds of flowers."

              It is the name of a well-known gamelan composition, with poetic lyrics that compare different kinds of women to different kinds of flowers - each with their own kind of beauty. The piece was supposedly created by Prince Mankunegara IV in honor of his wives and concubines.

              In addition, a recording of Puspawarna was included on the "Golden Record" sent into space on Voyager. Carl Sagan is said to have found Puspawarna to be the most beautiful piece of music he ever heard.

              I am female* and I enjoy playing Javanese gamelan - in fact, my slendro gamelan was made by the workshop associated with the Mankunegara palace. Also I'm a fan of space exploration and the ideas espoused by Carl Sagan (the ones that have stood the test of time, anyway). So "Puspawarna" seemed like a name that encapsulated many aspects of who I am.


              * Yes, I know my avatar is male. What can I say, Arjuna is more photogenic than his wife.

                Mine comes from my nick name and the fact that I travel a lot.
                The challenge is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else.

                  DAVITA is a portmanteau word formed from David (my name) and Ita (wife's name).
                  It is also the name of our boat that we live-on when in Vancouver....where we currently are for the Canadian short summer.

                  btw 'Go Canucks!" for those members who have an interest in ice hockey and who will win the Stanley Cup...This city went wild Saturday night as the Vancouver team beat Boston in the first 2 games out of the best of 7 games.

                  Tonight (Monday here) is game 3 in Boston.

                    No wonder I had a feeling of deja vu. And I thought my memory was failing me.

                          Ok. Let's make a difference dis time. What about telling me the stories behind your current username AND let me know what name you would use if you are allowed to change your user name.. that, if you want to change it.

                            Kratos is a video game character, one of a mortal son of zeus who was plotted to replace Ares in order to become God of War....
                            The character was depicted as brutal, merciless, atheist, skillful, sadistic,physically outstanding, well picture the Cain's side of Hercules.....
