:finger: Coming home from work today I got stuck behind a gang of 10 or so :squid:. Two of them had their girls on the back, of course none had gear. The one that was barely doing wheelies had his helmet half on. At the light they all line up side by side and rev their engines. Part of me was hoping to see one of them crash or something but I didn't want to see anything bad happen to their bikes. So they take off and I don't see them for the length of the island. I make it to the draw bridge off the Island ,the only way off the Island. Traffic has slowed to halt, the light is green so I know its not a boat coming through. Traffic finallys starts moving and I see what caused the slow down. The squids have stopped all stopped in lane. Squid one is off his bike and talking to his squid pack. I think he may have layed his bike down trying to do a wheelie on the bridge deck. They take off again probably figuring the 5.0 was gonna come through. They start off yet again and I am still stuck behind them. They ride on some more, half the squid pack veer onto my on ramp the other half still ride on. Thats when the whole pack stops in the middle of the damn road. I just pass them and I drive on home. I could have followed them maybe catch one of them bite it big but I figure I am safer at home.

Ya, the faster they bite it, the sooner they'll be off the road for good. It's one of my pet peeves, to see idiots pull a wheelie right around cagers.

I learned my lesson about gear after my first day of not wearing it and went stunting. Opps. I just drink lots of water and I'll take frequent stops if necessary for a pee break now. Then again, I don't ride for more than 20 mins now.

I tend to separate myself from any squids I see on the road. I'll either take a different route to my destination, or just get into the slow lane and let them get well ahead of me. I don't want to end up getting pinned as part of the problem when one of the d!cks up.

What pisses me off is that they are acting like dumbasses around the other cages. Surrounding them while doing wheelies and reving up. They scared this one lady half to death and she is creeping along at 12 mph. The lady thinks they are harresing her while I bet half of them can't handle their machines. I guess I am just jealous guys. Why is that the stupid get the best toys?

Don't come to FL then Jbaz. 12mph down a street is common here. It either an unliscensed immigrant driving or an old person.

I agree with cookee, I'd rather be known for my brains that a nice looking bike. But the reason idiots get the best toys though is simple... they don't know what debt is until its too late.

or anyone below 60 on cellphone. wait, that's almost everyone. I've learned to let go of my stereotypical bias vision, since almost all cagers here are dickwads since the advent of cell phone, tv and dvd players, and my favorite drunkards.

not to mention I got egged by a 20 year old guy talking on his cell in his '2000+ mustang (possibly sleeper GT). as I shift to 1st and rev my engine as it's a habit, this guy tries to show of his mega-powerful V8 and does a burn out before turning left. and then he slows down to egg me on so he can drag and beat me at 35 mph limit zone. the traffic is way too close, and other cars could exit anytime from nearby parking lots. so I don't feed his ego, so the moron decides to drive right between two lanes to block my path or incite me. until we come into an interesection, we get into 45 zone, he switches lane, I pass a few cars letting my exhaust howl for a bit, and then he gets behind me. I turn right and hit 70 and speed past few cars, sayonara. he was probably looking for a redlight where we're both at front.

I will ride slow and then rightfully speed to get away pending on situations, it's my way of maintaing most personal safety.

With all of this talk about squids, I thought it might be time to reprise an old favourite...

(To the tune of Ice, Ice, Baby.)

Ice Ice Squidly

I got stopped, by a big collision,
Broke both my legs, and my front suspension,
Lights all around me, shinin' brightly,
Hope I'm not visitin' our God Almighty.

What the f*ck happened, don't you know,
I was ridin' like a squid, putting on a show,
When I was flicking my legs between the handles,
My mirror got hooked on my open-toed sandals.

BAM! hit the pavement, my bike went BOOM!,
Head spinning like I'm trippin' on a mushroom,
If there ever was a squid, yo, it's me,
Not wearing gear, stunting on the street.

By ridin' like this, I won't have to wait,
Too long 'fore my name begins with "The Late..",
But if I quit now, my crew'd think I'm a kid,
So check it, old man, 'cause, yo, I'm a squid.

:squid:

I never thought I would hear something by Ice Cube that could be somewhat entertaining, or funny. I guess I was wrong:D

I was refering to what it was a perody of, rather than who wrote the lyrics. I know Ice Cube was to dumb to have written something like that, and if he had, then it would truly have been written from his own experiences lol.

Okay, but I still have to correct you on something. It was Vanilla Ice who did Ice Ice Baby, not Ice Cube.

You young people... :D

To be completely correct, the beat was from this pop group, which pretty much got him the lawsuit and ruined his career.

It was actually sampled from the song "Under Pressure" by Queen and David Bowie. Great song; Vanilla Ice was a loser.
