    no cheating!!

    Squid Test Evaluation

    So far, 19446 people (including you) have responded to this Squid Test Survey and have been tabulated. Of those responses, the average grade is 53. Your grade was 80 (from 0 to 100), and 0 out of the 115 questions were left un-answered. The average number of questions answered in this test is 47.

    A higher grade indicates a stronger sense of common decency, and a lower grade is an indication of conspicuous squidliness and general disregard for civilized society. Your score indicates that you are a fairly responsible motorcyclist but a bit of a wise-ass.

    Thank you very much for taking the time for this survey! While you're here, feel free to look around the rest of this web site.

    My results:
    So far, 19447 people (including you) have responded to this Squid Test Survey and have been tabulated. Of those responses, the average grade is 53. Your grade was 72 (from 0 to 100), and 8 out of the 115 questions were left un-answered. The average number of questions answered in this test is 47.

    A higher grade indicates a stronger sense of common decency, and a lower grade is an indication of conspicuous squidliness and general disregard for civilized society. Your score indicates that you are a halfway decent rider and wise-ass who is way too narcissistic his or her own good.

    I have to say whoever wrote it was not a squid- probably a bmw rider who's bike sounds like a sewing machine. I mean, not a single question about warming up the tires via smokey burnouts! One of my specialties!

Are you sure you properly answered ALL the questions on the form?

            Yeah, definately comes from the opinions of a beemer rider. I think I should have scored higher but maybe having a motorcycle that can out maneuver almost anything makes me seem squidly to greybeards with sidecar fetishes

              On the question about passing the rv (which I have done on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and which imho should be off limits to rubber necking rv drivers with a passenger hanging out the window videotaping the scenery (badly I might add) because they are in too much of a hurry to pull into any of the many senic pull offs and see it live, thus slowing to a crawl the motorcyclists behind them (who are already bumming by the 45 mph speed limit)) they neglected the flashing of the finger whilst making the left turn pass! Only a real squid would know this. Really

                "Your score indicates that you are a fairly responsible motorcyclist but a bit of a wise-ass. "

                I would say that pretty much nails it for me.

                    well.... we have it pinned because we're trying to pass someone, and we have hawks..

                          oooo ya i found it strange to down shift two gears on the rc51 verses only one gear on the hawk wile passing. 6 speed tranny is sweet, has a hawk rider i was always looking for it, with the rc i always giggle alittle wile shifting into 6th

                            decible?

                            My bike is probably not even legal on the track because it runs 110 decibles when I downshift. but everyone knows that I am here .,Better safe then sorry. Loud pipes save lives. I run at 2K when in my hood, cause I don't want to upset my buddies
                            Any thing worth doing is worth overdoing.
                            I'm not riding too fast, I'm flying too low...
