    A "squid" is someone who's in the Navy.

    I expect pcad will soon post a denial of this truth.

    Seriously. I just ride 'em. I don't hang out with other motorcyclists. I just ride old junkers that putt around and are fun to ride.

    I hate group rides. I don't like hanging out with other motorcyclists either. They are even more insufferable than other cyclists.

    Another reason to avoid the Harley Tribe. They had a big "event" at a mega-dealership here last weekend. There were so many in attendance, I'm afraid to ride my bicycle anywhere near the place for fear of residual oil on the pavement.

    As for not having a windshield...... I was doing 70 on the freeway, in the rain with a faring/shield and while passing a car the sky opened up with hail. I was wearing my openfaced helmet and the hail went around my faring and hit me in the face like I was shot with buckshot. I went from 70 to 35 in the fast lane, and I was all tucked in behind my faring until I found a safe place to go. Man that hurt.

    Steven Longing for a Goldwing, none of those over fast speed things.

    Even putting aside the huge safety issue, I don't see how people can ride with open face or WWI German military helmets. I find opening my face shield even a tiny bit at anything more than 40 MPH or so to be completely insufferable, even in pleasant weather.

    Some are fun.

    Dirt bikers = fun !

    Harleys, hit or miss.... If you get 'riders', fun, if you get look-at-me's = embarrassing
    Dealer rides, or Darwins revenge runs, are asking for trouble....avoid like unsanitary Mexican Diner

    Squidrockets = liking working overtime. I ride for relaxtion. Squidery is just too much like work.
    Getting pulled as a group for the obligatory small town porcine/du you have zee paperrrrs check gets
    old too.

    Scooters= lots of fun ! out partay HD ruffians by a mile. Get drunk, get nekid !
    I dont do either of those but the riding part is hilarious, too

    My HJC Symax modular flip-up is the very definition of a Fred helmet. It is full-face, modular, solid silver color and I have adorned with with reflective tape on all sides. I have to say, though, if you wear glasses, the flip-up helmets sure are handy in terms of getting the glasses on and off.

    We've already gone over the definition of squid. A lot of squids are found on sportbikes, aka "crotch rockets". He just put them together.

    I took my RC51 out on Sunday. I was able to get into my 1 piece leather suit no problem this year too since Ive lost my gut riding my bicycle up and down these hills we have around here.

    I have some Harley Davidson winter gloves (unheated) that were so good at keeping my hands warm I used them for snowmobling for many years

    I'd check Arctic Cat snowmobile products. They sell very good gear imho. Ive ridden sleds and motorcycles in cold weather with a pair of their bibs/jacket and have been very comfortable. They also have a very good selection of heated and unheated gloves etc.

    Why does Harley charge over $30K for a Road King? More puzzling, why does anyone pay that?

    I don't know Rich, I just saw a top of the line Road King in the m/c buying guide, they said it was $30K+. Go figure.

    Its ironic you only see owners of other bike ragging on HD's.
    If you've never been on a Road King, and are just intent on making
    jokes about some goofy HD owners, there is nothing that will change your
    mind. But, if you are actually interested in being an informed rider, maybe you
    should rent one and drive up the Taconic Parkway one weekend and see what
    they are all about. There lots of great generic touring bikes, most more high tech, but
    theres nothing like a Road King. Nothing. Except maybe a Victory..... If you want
    surgical, sterility in your touring bike, Hondas, BMW 4s, FJR, etc will all do fine,
    but if you want a multi-stater that feels alive, only a Road King will do

    Steel is real
