Answers to 'Motorcycle Culture':
1) What is the origin of the word 'Hog'? What does it refer to now?
From Wikipedia: "Beginning in 1920 a team of farm boys down South that would become known as the 'hog boys' consistently won races. The group had a hog, or pig as their mascot. Following a win, they would put the pig (a real one) on the back of their Harley and take a victory lap. In 1983, an organization was formed, taking advantage of the long-standing nickname by turning "hog" into the acronym H.O.G., for Harley Owners Group. Many Harley-Davidson enthusiasts capitalize the word to make "Hog" and consider this term the sole property of H-D."
2) What does each of the following terms refer to: *Squid - "Squirrely Kid" *RUB - "Rich Urban Biker" *Cager - Person in a car *Bluehair - old person *Road Gator - shredded truck tire on the roadway *Backwarmer - (typically female) passenger
