Google would not help in this case, it's an obscure term from this message board.

It's the third result in a Google search. Urban dictionary.

Quote:
A popular word among motorcyclists and bicyclists for four wheeled motor vehicle drivers. The term is often used in a derogative sense, because the car body effectively forms a cage, isolating the said driver from having to interact with other road users.

The term was coined by motorcyclists.

It's actually a very common term on motorcycle boards as well.
