I ride to work every workday, winter time and all, unless it snows or rain. Don't snow here much, don't rain here much either. Just need good winter riding gloves

Cool stuntking

i like to ride for fun but for the last 2years i have been more into the stunt scene than anything else. but i still cruise every now and again, but the main thing to remember is to be safe and ride smart.

Well, I guess I had just gotten back into the motorcycle scene when I asked what a squid was.

A squid is usually a teenager who does things like wear flip flops, shorts, and no helmet when he rides, he does wheelies, endos, etc.... The whole point of a bike is not to ride it, but to do tricks on it to impress people.

I could go on forever, but I have to work. Suffice it to say, his favorite movie is Biker Boyz.

Mostly a squid is just a stupid, stupid rider. This is the person who, on their first group ride, feels that he/she can keep up with the top riders when they go through twisties at a swift pace. On the first corner, they realize that they have gone in too hot and with no riding knowledge. Their hot new R6 has just been reduced to an insurance claim.

Good example: 'that' guy at the bar. Don't be the guy who rolls into a dance club with a mullet, sunglasses, and the notion that he can score with any female in the place, models preferably. The worst I saw was a middle-aged guy in a trenchcoat, sunglasses, serious mullet, combat boots, and attitude. He tried doing dance offs with anyone who came within his space and he ended up trying some bizarre move that landed him first into a railing and subsequently onto the floor......much laughter all around the dance floor.
