Wikipedia - Squid

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squid_%28motorcycle%29

also an article by hunter s. thompson on cafe racing http://www.latexnet.org/~csmith/sausage.html

"I have been a connoisseur of fast motorcycles all my life. I bought a brand-new 650 BSA Lightning when it was billed as "the fastest motorcycle ever tested by Hot Rod magazine." I have ridden a 500-pound Vincent through traffic on the Ventura Freeway with burning oil on my legs and run the Kawa 750 Triple through Beverly Hills at night with a head full of acid... I have ridden with Sonny Barger and smoked weed in biker bars with Jack Nicholson, Grace Slick, Ron Zigler and my infamous old friend, Ken Kesey, a legendary Cafe Racer."

the origins were all new to me. I always figured that squid referred to the slimy pinkish look and texture of freshley peeled flesh and how it resembled a squid Interesting

I once said "Displacement was compensation for lack of skill. Therefore, there is no need for anything more than a well balanced 600." Right, who was I kidding.
