hey, not all squids are bad, just the ones that misbehave all the time. If your actions are dangerous some of the time, you are just learning the ropes, the ins and outs of motorcycling, but if you are stupid and dangerous all the time, then you are labeled a squid....kind of lame to me. i have rode with my shirt off and followed most all laws, if I'm a squid than so be it. I guess my definition of a squid is someone who is soft.....new to the sport; someone who doesn't know the implicit rules of motorcycling. I am not bashing anyone, just my opinion......please daddy don't hurt me!!!!
