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.
Thanks for the clarification S.S.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

WOW!!! They even have a definition for it... INSANE!!!:stickpoke
Usually "they" never tell the squid to his face.....:stickpoke
I was in it for the FUN... I've done WORSE.... Believe me you don't want to KNOW!!!! LOL!!!!For the record...I am a "fairly responsible rider and a bit of a wise ass" according to the survey!
I try to stay on the racetrack.... Its what I mostly do now!!!!
I don't have sound on my computer at work.... was there a "Master P" or "Rough Ryderz" song playing?
I think that ti needs more Mv and less "busa's" :stickpoke
Good job editing though. I really don't have any problems with someone burning tires and riding wheelies and/or wrecks.... it makes for good entertainment! Who doesn't like carnage? As long as it isn't my bike or me.... I say go for it!
