Sorry. I been riding since the mid-seventies when the only riders who wore ATGATT were either racing in the dirt or at a track. When the sport bike crowd adopted the Kenny Roberts apparel, SQUID stood for "Super Quick Until I'm Dead."
(You see, we noticed the majority of the ATGATT crowd were new riders who simply dressed to emulate their superbike heroes and quite frankly, were clad far above their attained skill level. A lot of them didn't last long.Things haven't changed much...
I like the original meaning a hell of a lot more plus it also makes sense.
Keep your opinion if you'd like. But it doesn't change the fact you're wrong.
