Squid

Though I know what a Squid is I have forgot what it exactly stands for? Isn't there a breakdown of what each letter means?

Thank you!
That fits exactly who I rode with Saturday! My son in-law invited me to join him and a few friends on a ride. It was soon apparent that they were more interested in long straight sections of road than finding the twisties. All they did the entire ride was do wheelies. I actually kept a safe distance back incase I had to make a last minute maneuver to avoid debris.
My concern of course is that my SQUID son in-law is going to pile up his 636 Ninja sooner or later and end up leaving my daughter and their two young children fatherless or at the very least financially strapped making payments on a wrecked motorcycle. All this stunting and they were wearings jeens!

Jesus, man-this sounds terrifying!.....What a frightening recipe for disaster.........Discpline this child somehow, you owe it to your family............................................ ............I hate to say this but SOMEONE in your son-in-law's little asshole posse is gonna die soon........If you cant change their behavior, then at least try to add some gear.....Ive ridden with crew's like that before- and someone always dies or ends up in a wheelchair {OR both}....I was a complete fool when I was younger, and I cannot even imagine what kind of idiotic riding I would be doing if I had the kind of hardware that one can get at a dealership today.....We really should have a stepped license system here in the states, I am all for it actually...Yikes! ....Good luck man.....


Hedges,

Make him purchase the largest life insurance policy that someone will write him. (this may plant the seeds of responsibility) Educate and mentor him on safety gear...buy him a set of leathers for Christmas. Teach him that he should fully expect to die on his motorcycle and to make preparations because it will happen. (not that you want it to happen). Nobody wants to crash, but if you prepare for it, you are usually better off.

Usual attire here in San Diego for the wheelie/stoppie (squid) crowd is wife beater, shorts, flip flops and no helmet.
