Re: What are your Real Names / whats the story behind the ID Real name: Yashik. Username: PaddleShifter. Story behind ID name is that on some forums, you are more likely to be accepted if you are a Honda Fan/owner. All of my registration requests were rejected until I registered with this ID and Bingo!!! I was in that time. Hence the name PaddleShifter and this is what you'll see at CarWale, Autocar India forum as well.
