Originally posted by farkin.netHuck/Hucking/Hucker: Mostly known as the type of rider that likes to do drops off large things such as; cliffs, roofs, North shore style ramps. The name is supposedly taken from the noise one makes when bunnyhopping their bike as hard as they can off the edge of a drop. The word "Huck" is also used in other sports, notably white water kayaking, but it still refers to the same thing.
Appropriately enough, I also found this entry while I was searching for hucking:
Originally posted by wikipedia.orgChicken Strips: A chicken strip is a sometimes derogatory term used to describe the width of unused tread on the edges of motorcycle tires, typically a sport bike.
At speed, a turning motorcycle leans. The faster the turn, the farther the motorcycle leans over. As the motorcycle leans, the contact patch moves farther to the side of the tire causing wear. The chicken strip is the amount of unused wear caused by a motorcyclist being considered too chicken to go faster through a turn and thereby lean the motorcycle farther over.
This is frequently used as a derogatory term deriving from the term chicken. Hence, chicken strips mark an inexperienced motorcyclist who is afraid to lean a motorcycle far enough to wear the edges of the tire.
"Chicken strips" can also be caused by commuting, doing numerous/repeated burnouts or, to a lesser extent, wheelies.

We just got a new Powerbook (is that what they're called still?) at my work for a user who is, in her own words, too special to use a Dell. It came with a Parallels install of XP on it. Parallels is pretty slick.
