Yes, but only because the tree lived. If you break the tree, you get extra points. :p BTW Nvr, doesn't getting so nervous before a race that you put your jersey on inside out make you a squid?:cool:

Its all relative my friend.........
All depends on who you go riding with at any giving day........If you happen to be the most talented of the immediate bunch, you are usually labeled as the "fast guy"
Or if you are "LUCKY" as I usually am are one of the slower guys in the bunch you are deemed a "SQUID". I say lucky because I get to hang with guys who are usually faster than I, therefore I get the pleasure of working with someone who can get me faster. The "fast" guys unfortunately dont have anyone to push them, therefore the only pleasure they get is smokin' me!!

Its all how you look at it..........Or as I said "Its all Relative"!!
Take Care, Vet

Yes Vet, it is relative, but everyrider on earth has "squidded" out at one time or another. I myself don't refer to the slowest rider being a squid although I know some do. There is always someone trying to put someone down for being slower and I dont think that is appropriate. I have ridden with some of the fastest in the land and they normally don't deem slower riders squids! This thread is about silly things that we've done and how we can laugh them off and look forward to the next ride. ;) ;)

Your begging the question... Squid or Spode?

Live to Spode, Spode to Live?

I Spode, therefore I Squid?

Etc, etc, etc...

We're all squids compared to RC, MC, Yogi, Langston, Pastrana, etc. or until you can qualify for a National or SX.

We're all TEAM CALAMARY!! ;)

BTW, Pastrana wheelies all the time... is he a squid?

I think 'squid' originated in the '80s, (I remember it at least that far back), and was originally used to decribe a rider with very little skill. (Nothing to do with speed.) Because these unskilled riders tend to flop around on their bikes like some spineless creature out of water,they garnered the nick-name, 'squid.':confused:

That's what I thought a squid was too, ktmboy. A squid also chops the throttle about 1/4 way up the double jump and rolls like heck on the rest of the two hills. :)
There are other terms to describe wheelie popping show-offs, but I don't think "squid" is one of em.
Hey....I AM a squid!:confused:

My interpretation of SQUID is exactly the same as KTMboys',..... except I remember the term being used as far back as the early 70's. ;)

I don't have the username "calamari racer" for nothing. I've worked just as hard as MC or RC for that title. You think it's easy to overshoot a high-banked corner not knowing what's on the other side?:confused:

Does this qualify?

I'm on my way home last night when I hear a large two stroke screaming down the road. I finally see him as he tears by us on his p.o.s. vintage YZ 490 or somethin like that. He is wearing riding boots with shorts, a t-shirt and no helmet or even eye protection, not to mention of course the bike isn't street legal! I live in a smaller mountain community so can you guess how many tree huggers live here? They love it when some a$$hole does somehting like this. Sure glad he's representing me and you.:p
