The name comes from my affinity for recumbent bicycles. Since I'm very much one of those "different drummer" sorts, I figure that the notoriety resulting from wearing a kilt is just part of the game for me.
I won't wear a kilt while I'm on my recumbent bicycles, though. I don't feel any need to embarrass the other guys with my willingness to express myself. Besides, the pleat material interferes with control of the bicycle.
On the other hand, I've found that I can ride my old 3-speed whilst wearing my UK Workman's model, without creating any em-bare-assing moments.
