A squid is someonee who rides 1. stupid and 2. without proper gear. Squids are the people that you see riding down the street doing 75mph(poppin wheelies too usually) in a cargo shorts, t-shirt, no gloves, tennis shoes and a helmet. Thats what a squid is. GSXR's account for the most amount of squids, BUT you can find a squid on any machine, even honda's too

I think this sums it up... If you need some pics I am sure some members have some....

So what does SQUID really stand for? It’s an Acronym, SQUirrely kID: 1. In reference to younger motorcycle riders with little respect to posted speed limit laws, self safety or safety of others. 2. Inexperienced newcomer, someone trying to ride beyond his skill level with arms flailing (like a squid) to try not to fall. This may be just a Southern term. 3. Stupidly Quick, Underdressed, Imminently Dead. 4. Any SportBike Rider -- seems this term got twisted along the way and has many meanings. 5. Sportbike riders who wear tennis shoes or flip flops, shorts, T-shirts, etc. on their nice shiny new sport bikes. 6. Anyone who rides without all proper gear, rides recklessly or rides beyond his limits.

A squid is derived from the latin root: SQUIRLY KID.... It is an affliction that strikes many retarded riders that feel the need to wheelie down residential streets while wearing the staple wife beater, shorts and flip flops. They usually arrive at bike meets in packs and promptly inspect other riders chicken strips making comments and jokes when in reality, they've used a sander to remove their own.

Strangely enough, this condition is most prevelant amongst Gixxer owners. ;)

To avoid this ailment, stay with Honda, ride within your limits and always wear your gear. ;)

Cheers...

a squid doesnt have to be a motorcycle rider... pretty much anybody who is being stupid about doing anything... mostly used for someone new to something who either thinks they already know everything and clearly know nothing or is just a dumbass.

ive seen people that i know are good riders doing the stupid task of riding in shorts... pretty stupid thing to do but i wouldnt call them squids necessarily (a few of them anyway). also there is no helmet law in Illinois so thats common too
