Someone who tries to ride beyond their abilities, to show off, is in the game just to look cool, puts others at risk, usually not wearing the appropriate gear. That kind of stuff defines a squid.

I'm a Squid, and I don't wave to other riders.

I guess I am a squid too. I like being a squid, its fun.

Why is it called being a "squid" though? I mean, why Squid?

Some say it's "squirrely kid" shortened. Others say it's because the blood stain on the road looks like a squid's ink cloud.

Squids (the sea creature) also tend to move around by darting in straight lines, stopping, rotating, and taking off again.

In much the same way, squids (the motorcyclist) are known for their ability to twist the throttle and go fast in a straight line, but having to slow to a ridiculously low speed to complete a turn.

Good somebody got the real definition correct. "Squid" just describes a style of riding. It does not refer to riders that are irresponsible and dangerous.

Good job Spitfire

Cool

Thanks for the definition Spitfire. I was afraid to ask. Now I'm waiting for Adam's definition.
