I see that everyone has their own definition of what qualifies a person as being a squid. What is yours?

It started back in the dirtbike days from people who would scream down straight ways but go really slow around corners. Just like a squid they can jump in spirts in straight lines really quickly but have to slow down to turn.

Thats what my dad thinks of when he hears the term "squid". He's an old dirtbiker.

To me, a squid is a reckless rider, who has no regard to others' safety nor his own. Especially the ones who ride without proper gears....t-shirt, shorts, flip flops, etc. I always steer away from riders who don't wear proper gears.

Ten people will give you ten answers, but it all comes down to a lack of knowledge at the end of the day. I tell my boys if they are doin squidinsh things like speeding just because if you are on a group ride being erratic while in a formation and so on. Or IMO not correcting a person when they call our sport bikes (crotch rockets) I hate that term.
