Some common terms around here

Thought this would be a fun thread to start for those who may be new to the board or the internet. We throw around some terms that some may not be familiar with. Here are a few with their meanings. Anyone else feel free to add to this list.
  • NSFW - Not Safe For Work (Content in a post that is not safe for viewing at work)
  • Pr0n - Another way of saying Porn. Came from IRC chat rooms.
  • WTF - What the F#@K!!
  • Squid - A rider who lives for the straights but can't turn for shite. Or is only concerned with the look of his bike not the function of it. (This is a generalization keep in mind. Exceptions to every rule )
  • RTFM - Read the [email protected]#King Manual

In the upper right hand corner is the "search" tab. Many of your questions can be answered there without starting a new thread that has the same questions that a member posted 2 weeks ago.
