...a web page dedicated to the silly antics of some sport motorcyclists, and a place in which to display gratuitously grotesque pictorials of the associated dangers.

What is a "squid"??
The Merriam-Webster 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.
