What is a "squid"??
dictionary defines a squid as "a
cephalopod having eight short arms and two usually longer tentacles, a long tapered body,
a caudal fin on each side, and usually a slender internal chitinous support." But in motorcycling a squid is "someone who rides far outside
his abilities, often to the detriment of himself and his equipment."
Motorcycle squids come in a couple of forms. You
can spot squids at Daytona beach riding shirtless and wearing flip-flops, and you can find
them on neon bikes wearing colorful leathers and riding on public roads as if they were at
Laguna Seca Raceway.
If you have trouble finding squids, here are some
helpful spotting tips: Check the local hospital's emergency room. Check the embankments at
the outside of decreasing -radius curves. Check the county morgue. When tracking squids,
look for bits of plastic and broken-off side view mirrors, stray knee slider pucks,
shattered helmet faceshields, and tire marks that lead off into the weeds. Look also for
bloodstained asphalt and wrappings from bandages and intravenous supplies. These are all
sure signs that you're crossing the path of a squid. Squids usually have loud
aftermarket exhaust systems, which make them easier to find before they actually crash.
