the term SQUID....

You know being part of the bike community the term "squid" is thrown around quit often.

Since I have been on MH I have heard it used to describe as riders who do not wear gear, or as riders who are “noobs.”

ALL of this sounds good, but didn’t the term start out comparing a newbie riders way of riding to the way a squid swims?

I was curious, so I looked it up. I googled Bikers dictionary, and this is what I found for my search……

Squid (Squiddy) - Acronym, SQUirrely kID. 1. In reference to younger MC riders with little respect to posted speed limit laws, self safety or safety of others. 2. Inexperienced newcomer, someone trying to ride beyond his skill level with arms flailing (like a squid) to try not to fall. This may be just a Southern term. 3. Stupidly Quick, Underdressed, Imminently Dead. 4 Any Sportbike Rider - seems this term got twisted along the way and has many meanings. 5 Sportbike riders who wear tennis shoes or flip flops, shorts, T-shirts, etc. on their nice shiny new sport bikes. 6 Anyone that rides without all proper gear , rides recklessly, or rides beyond their limits. 7. Someone who rides a sportbike on the street as if he or she were on a racetrack.

What about a sportbike rider that buys a racebike to ride on the street and observes all traffic laws. Maybe that is a poser instead.

No problemo.

I wonder why harley riders are never called squids because they buy slow bikes or what?

"what does calimari have to do with riding?"

Dead Squid...

Squid, also a derogatory reference to members of the Navy...

I'm somewhat inclined to think the term may have originated from
"Stupidly Quick, Underdressed, Imminently Dead" riders enlisted in the Navy.

Yea, they just go fast going straight basically and can't turn. Gear? That is up to them it is a free country. I am not going to call some a squid for that because I don't always wear gear either on my other bikes. I do on the gixxer most of the time.
