Re: I haven found the squidlyest forum..

I just read the thread. It was pretty much a 19 year old kid who thinks shit dont stink, and a couple pedos hanging on to his nuts like if chris hansen was on vacation.

I started reading, and got bored quickly.

Re: I haven found the squidlyest forum..

It just makes me want to say thanks MJ and everyone else for a forum where squid bs street behavior that is dangerous and not appropriate is not condoned, and when it appears it is dealt with.

Re: I haven found the squidlyest forum..

What squid behavior are you talking about?

Riding without helmet,gloves,proper gear,boots?

Or doing dangerous stuff?

Sorry to say this but this seems to occure more in the usa then in europe?

Say if i am wrong but isnt a motorcycle driving licence much easier to get in the usa then in europe?

Here you need to drive a 25kw motorcycle from the age of 18 for 2 years then you can drive a full power motorcycle.

For 2013-2014 rules are going to much strickter.

Age 24: full power motorcycle after basic schooling and passing the exam (obvious).

Age 18: 25kw motorycle, then after 2 years 35kw then again after 2 years full power so then you are already 22 and have 4 years of driving before you may drive a full power motorcycle.

Before you get your license or even allow to do you exam you must do 6 hours of basic practise, if you dont pass that practise you cant get even your license.

You must drive around for at least 3 months and maximum 1 year before you can do the exam.

How is the goverment role on this?

Do they make a motorcycle safety campaign like here (europe)?

If i am wrong then i apologize but thats my impression so far

I mean if the police sees your driving around here without proper gear you will get pulled over.

Even most bikes (including me) will point out of the stupid behavior of such invidual.

Forza Flandria!

Re: I haven found the squidlyest forum..

Here all you need to do is buy a bike, take a 5 min permit exam and schedule a test. I took a 2 day class where you ride around in a big parking lot doing maneuvers. When the class is over you get a license. 2 day class is about 4-6 hours a day.

^^^ That's laughable really.......I bet you could pay someone to do the course for you, if you were that way inclined

Re: I haven found the squidlyest forum..

This is Uhmerika!

But i really do think its WAY too easy for anyone to be able to ride a motorcycle in the street legally. Its only a written test that you can even cheat on. After that, you dont even need a license unless you ride at night, carry a passenger, or go in the freeway.

They should at least make the MSF course mandatory, plus a more advanced course IMO.

For the military it is. And the other courses are mandatory pending what you drive. For example if you drive a moped the basic rider MSF course is enough. But for myself I had to also take the advance rider course and sports bike course before I could take my lil 600 on post. But I have never once been asked for my lisence or even the cert cards at the gate while I'm in uniform. But the courses sure made insurance very cheap.

Re: I haven found the squidlyest forum..

a 15 year old kid, if he were to fool his guardian enough (yes I have seen it happen) can buy a brand new Hyabusa or GSXR1000 and ride solo so long as he doesnt go on the freeways, ride at night, or ride with a passenger.

scary


As for what he was deaming squid behaviour, not just lack of gear although that is pretty typical. He was talking about using the public roads as a private playground. Riding recklessly and irresponsibly putting innocents in danger for the sake of your own fun.

It is pretty damn common in the sportbike community, but that does not make it ok or right.

Re: I haven found the squidlyest forum..

sometimes its Darwinism at its best... there is a big difference between squiding and stunting i think. anyone can ride like a moron on the open road. stunting on a closed circuit is as cool as racing if you ask me. I am all for graduated licensing too for canada. When i got my license it was a joke. had beginner motorcycle class added to my license and had to book the driving test within 30 days. the driving test was a short ride around my small home town with the instructor behind in a car.

Re: I haven found the squidlyest forum..

I agree. You will never hear me flame someone for using their bike in the way they see fit... as long as it is in a responsible manner that doesnt put others at risk who dont choose to be there.

Stunting in a closed place, drag racing on a strip, aggressive sport riding on the track etc.

It might be WRONG but I still smile if driving along and someone pulls a wheelie in front of me.

Re: I haven found the squidlyest forum..

with the power the 600 are making now a 400 fi in the same chassis would still be pretty fun and maybe the insurance would be cheaper.

I was thinking that too. I lurked between both these sites before finally settling on this one as the forum to use. GSXR.com just reminded me to much of Honda-tech.com

What got the argument going? I`m curious how anyone could possibly argue against gear if that was the case. Hell i had all my gear before i bought my first bike.
