A hybrid street motorcycle that is highly modified particulary for use racing. This term has been around since circa 1969 and Webster has failed to publish it.
I watched World Superbike racing last night on the Speed channel
Comes from motor racing, espically motorcycle racing. Depends on who's listening. If you're mom's there, it's "Wound Flat Out" if it's your buddies it's "Wide Fuckin' Open"
"I was WFO on the back straight when I passed you"
Off road motorcycle racing

biily bob thorton-- "what are you up to today, bubba ateaberger?"
Bubba -- "im goin to ride moto"
Sqiudly kid who doesnt really race -- "yeah i eide motocross. I did a backflip over the big red barn at my ncles farm" ... sure ya did squidly
A term origionally used in motorcycle racing for a rider with little talent that only moves quickly in short bursts (ie. between corners) hence the motion of a squid!
These days the term can also be used to describe a Stunta! Although sometimes the term "Squid" is abused by riders themselves with no talent to criticise riders with superior skills to theirs! when monkey cant do! what monkey see! (or doesnt have the balls to do!)
Correct use: All the American superbike riders are squids! They cant even win their own superbike championship!
Incorrect use: Look at that "Squid" riding down the HWY on one wheel at 100mph!
Go-kart made with an engine from a motocross motorcycle (Moto, typ. Honda CR125) or a purpose built shifter motor known as an ICC.
Shifter karts are characterized by insanely fast acceleration and extreme cornering ability. Surpringly inexpensive to purchase, they are a little-known secret to developing true driving ability. Virtually all drivers in every racing series ran a shifter kart at some point and most continue to as it's the best training method available.
I love racing guys that think their cars are fast, my shifter kart can run rings around any car on the road today.
Italian Motorcycle manufacturer. Rotax engine out of Austria, stronger than Arnold! Making scooters for years, but thats not the coolest. Owns Moto Guzzi and Laverda. Almost bankrupt because of racing.
Aprilia spends money on racing like a crackhead on crack!
The foundation of all sportbikes. The CBR "fireblade" produced by Honda is one of the top selling sporbikes world wide. Extreemly high build quality and a perfect blend of Power and Flickability. The Fireblade is also credited for being one of the top machines in racing and extreme stunt riding. Many critics say that without the fireblade sportbikes would be no where near what they are today.
The Honda fireblade is a fantastic motorcycle.
