What exactly is a "Squid"? I am beginning to realize that you guys and gals are not talking about some sea dwelling creature.

Help me to understand, please?

it's an immature, unsafe, non gear wearing, usually young but can be older, rider

My research into the terms origin, lead me to a post talking about an article written in the late 70s maybe about a very young sport biker pulling up to a stop sign, looking around frantically like a squirrel and darting away quickly. Squirrel + kid = squid

that's what I found anyway

It was originally a Naval term for an inexperienced newbie that would typically get killed early because of his inexperience. It was adopted to motorcycle riders.
