I have actually seen real life posts on the Suzuki forums from people who asked about angle grinding away the chicken strips on their tyresHell, I invented that years ago......'cept I use a belt sander on the tires and knee pucks. More realistic......
Squids are the people you see riding with just a helmet.
As you are in sunny Miami, these would be the guys in shorts, singlet, thongs and i am sure you have a lot of them lol.
Most of the time they are on Gixers.
