Josiah Spode: 1754-1827. British potter. In 1800 he founded a pottery that became famous for its bone china. A trademark used for a brand of fine china and earthenware.
Also a character in a 'Jeeves and Wooster' (P. G. Wodehouse) episode who was a huge bully of a man riding roughshod over Bertie Wooster's life. Spode however, had a secret; Jeeves found out from his connections at the local manservant's club that Spode designed and sold brassieres. One whisper of the 'brand' and Bertie was out of the woods, so to speak.
What Alice saw Through my Looking-Glass:

'Twas brillig, and the slithy Spode
Did gyre and gimble in the maid;
All mimsy were the borrowedbowls,
Which the mome raths outgrabed.

"Beware the Jabbersmock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

The word "Spode" is a common insult used ridicule a motocross rider who is lacking severely in the skills department. Spodes are often easily found before they even get on the track. Just look for the guy with black plastic, cut fenders, baggy pants, Metal Mulisha stickers everywhere, and a bike that fumigates the track as it goes along. People who ride in street bike helmets while on a dirtbike are also spodes.

See "Mike Alessi"
Look at that guy with the Metal Mulisha stickers, what a spode!

Oh dude! That guy just stacked it in that corner, he must be a spode.

Look! That spode over there is wearing a street bike helmet on a motocross track.

N. A term used in the dirtbike scene when describing someone who obviously isn't very good. They are usually on a crappy stock bike with no aftermarket parts, wearing unmatched ghetto gear, sitting down most of the time (injuries are exceptions as long as yoo look the part), elbows are down instead of out, and various other ridiculous things that should never be seen on a dirtbike track.
Jenn: "OMG I have a great story about this spode that Soule told me..."

Sam: "Well...?"

Jenn: "So there was this guy riding a KDX at the MX finals in Marysville and he was wearing rubber boots and stuff. And he does this weird bar turn every time he jumps and he almost eats shit. And he went over this double completely rear-end high and nosed in and cartwheeled. And he did the same thing every lap."

Sam: "Dude, he sounds like a total spode."

Jenn: "He was. Let's go roast a nug now."
