The #1 Frequently Asked Question: What's a Squid?

"Squid" is a term used by the riding community. It has many, many MANY definitions and that definition varies depending on who you are asking the question to. Ask us? A squid is someone on a motorcycle who is unprepared, uneducated, and/or unsafe.

No Squidding is not about hate. It's about safety. Similar to how the "No Smoking" signs urge smokers to not smoke, we are here to try and help encourage riders to progress -- ultimately to become better, safer & more talented riders.

We have supporters worldwide, from professional stunt riders to professional racers and everyone in between. The movement continues to gain momentum in the right direction thanks to everyone out there who supports No Squidding.

 

General Questions

Q: Do you recommend riders going to the track?
A: Of course! That is a great place to end up! In our opinion, it is one of the ONLY places a rider can TRULY ride a sport bike to its full potential. However, the track is already deeply coated in safety. There are rider meetings, sighting laps, different groups to help segregate faster riders from slower riders, gear requirements, tech inspections for your bike, the list goes on and on! We have full confidence that if a rider goes to the track, they will have no choice but to embrace what NOSQUIDDING.com stands for. Therefore, we focus our efforts on attracting the attention of riders on the street, in hopes to one day lead them to a track environment.

Q:Why do you even showcase street riding? Wouldn't it make more sense if you only concentrated on track riding?
A: One of our goals is to lead street riders into a track environment. We are unable to reach this audience if we eliminate the stepping stones (that MANY of us have used to get to the track) from their vision.

Q: Do you think that I should drag knee on the street?
A: If your ultimate goal is to drag a knee, then you are off to a bad start. Proper body position is what you should be striving for. You should become focused on becoming a better rider, and forget about the knee dragging. That will come naturally.

 

Online Store Questions

Q: How should I wash the clothing I buy from your online store?
A: Each piece of clothing should come with instructions for washing along with details of how to properly care for it. Following the care instructions will result in a longer life for the clothing. 

Q: What size should I order?
A: Our clothing details are listed on the detail page for each piece. They are well-known brands and generally run true-to-size. Keep in mind to look for if the clothing is "pre-shrunk" or not. This might help you decide on which size you want as well.

Q: How long does shipping take?
A: We do not promise fast deliveries! Our products are fulfilled as they are ordered, which means shipping starts once the product is printed and packed. We do not offer expedited shipping to avoid customers anticipating expedited timeframes. Generally, allow a few days for the shipment to be sent out, and then enough time for the package to travel to you.

Q: How is your clothing printed?
A:
We use Direct to Garment (DTG) printers for all of our clothing.

Direct to Garment (DTG) is a method where a printer directly applies the ink onto the t-shirt with inkjet technology.  It involves a special printer, which prints the ink directly onto the garment in the desired design. DTG uses specialty inks, which are absorbed by the fibers of the garment.

Q: I changed my mind, can I return my order for a refund?
A: We do not accept returns unless the item(s) are damaged or incorrect. Please contact us for any unique situations regarding your order before sending anything back to us.
