Great group on this site.


Seems to me that the only thing missing is our own "Ninja 300 Lexicon".


I'll go first:


"Nidiot" (noun)


Definition: A rider that lane splits to get ahead at traffic lights then tries to launch with the bike in neutral.


Ok... your turn.

"Squid"

A young motorcyclist who overestimates his abilities, boasts of his riding skills when in reality he has none. Squid bikes are usually decorated with chrome and various anodized bits. Rear tires are too wide for their own good, swingarm extended. Really slow in the corners, and sudden bursts of acceleration when a straight appears. Squids wear no protection, deeming themselves invincible. This fact compounds itself with the fact that they engage in 'extreme riding'--performing wheelies and stoppies in public areas. Squids wreck a lot. Derived from 'squirly kid'

Isn't this already a genuine term?
When exiting a corner typically on a track under hard acceleration and the fuel on the tank slaps onto the side of the tank from the forces and then hits the otherside forcing the bike to wobble?

Dunno, I just posted it because it was a term I knew. I didn't know if it was technical term or slang for it..
