Talking Movie Trailer

I was asked to help out with another "movie trailer" wanting to give the MV exposure to the masses I obliged, I thought it turned out pretty good...

Please excuse my silly question, but what is the meaning of "SQUID"? I have seen it being thrown around on here from time to time and apart from the sea creature, i'm not sure what this is supposed to mean.

To me it always meant riding without protective gear, but they are wearing it in that video so I can only assume it includes reckless/dangerous riding in the defination in the US?

What is a Squid? Someone who assumes more risk when riding than the person calling the name thinks is reasonable.—saddlebag at aol.com squid (skwid) n. 1. a motorcyclist who exaggerates his riding ability by attempting dangerous tricks. 2. a motorcyclist who wears grossly inadequate safety gear, typically shorts, T-shirt, and flip-flops. [Naval term for young sailor; typically one on leave with money to spend on a motorcycle. Believed to be an acronym for Stupid, Quick, and Inevitably Dead. Or Super QUick, Inadequately Dressed. Which is why I don't mkut much faith in acronyms as sources of words.] Yes, “squid” is a pejorative term, whether in its original usage for referring to members of the Navy by other members of the armed forces, or in its current usage of referring to those riders of sportbikes of limited talent and overarching recklessness. Should you be concerned that he’ll bust you in the chops? No. He’s wearing sandals, shorts, a T-shirt and baseball cap on backwards: if he tries to punch you, grab the hem of his shirt and pull it over his head. While he’s blinded, stomp on his unprotected feet with your own engineer boot-clad real-motorcyclist feet. Now that he’s hopping around on one foot with his shirt over his head, knock him over, pants him, take his bike for a spin and dump it in a ditch. You’re saving him the trouble of running it into the ditch himself, and a lot of road-rash besides, and you get a ride on a nice bike out of it for your trouble! Source: Timberwoof's Motorcycle FAQ

For the record...I am a "fairly responsible rider and a bit of a wise ass" according to the survey!

Thanks for the clarification S.S.
I am much the wiser now, and can also admit that I have more than likely fallen in to the "Squid" category in my younger biking days, and cant guarantee that doing a lazy coastal beach run in my home town in jeans, runners and a t-shirt (helmet of course) doesnt happen on occasions.... But the crazy wheelies etc dont happen any more.

Thanks again....I'm keen to use my new found word as soon as possible
