Just thought about posting a thread for some of the more experinced people of the forum to explain some requested bike slang.

EX: Gixxer. A common one to ask about. spoken version of Suzuki GSXR and to my knowledge pronounced "gickser" I may be and probably am wrong on that one though. :/

One I've been wondering about would be "Chicken strips"? :rolleyes: I could have a guess but otherwise have no idea.

Post away!:D

Chicken strips are the remaining unworn parts of (usually) your rear tire. It is a way bikers tend to size each other up, since the more you lean, the closer you get to the sidewall, thus scrubbing said strips off. A n00b move is to sandpaper the edges to portray true lack of chicken strips. i.e. "Man did you see John's chicken strips? He has like 3 inches on each side! He must be a pussy."

Chicken strips? Chicken strips are the part of your tire closest to the edge that you don't use, meaning your to chicken to lean your bike far enough to use up all your tire. It doesn't make you a bad rider, it just means you don't ride as hard as other people do. I don't think it really matters if you got chicken strips or not, everyone has ther own riding style. Of course, we all observe the the tires of other bikers and we can get an idea of how they ride, but chicken strips aren't a bad thing. A rider is a rider, and I give respect to all that ride on two wheels all over the world.

in case you haven't picked up "cager" is a car, and "WOT" is wide open throttle.

feel free to ask any others you're unsure of. Lord knows I googled a ton of shit when I started...

highside: when your bike wants to go one way and your body wants to go the other and you fly off over the top of the bike
lowside: when your bike slides out from underneath you
tank slapper: when your bike steering starts to wobble back and forth in a violent manor (usually leads to highside)

never could understand this chicken strip thing. a good rider moves their body to the inside of a turn which reduces the lean of the bike needed to make the turn, increasing the width of so called "chicken strips" aka "hero line". of course the sunday racers on the speed channel are pushing it all to the limits, body movement and bike lean. hardly the same bikes/tires we ride on the street. j
