New rider who acts a fool, ie. revving the engine to redline in the parking lot, going really fast straight, weaving in and out of traffic.

A rider whose generally without any sort of protective gear except for the rear frameslider, ie. Helmet on side of bike.

squids are also the bike noobs riding around thinking they are cool stuff because they now have a bike. they'd rather look cool over riding safely or wearing gear.

Heh, I wrote that definition (not copy and pasted) off of a decent amount of google spelunking. No one has any confirmed source. "Squid" is just a derisive pejorative. So your definition can work perfectly well for you.
