    FWIW, I have to agree with Gene. These acronyns are BS! People who need them should learn normal english ASAP.

    Exactly.

    If the sign says 'barbeque,' keep riding.

    If the sign says 'bar-b-que' or 'bar-b-q,' keep riding unless there are a healthy bunch of vehicles parked around the place.

    If the sign says 'bbq,' stop immediately and eat to your heart's content.

    This applies in several other states/regions as well. Ask around.

    FIB - When used by a person from Wisconsin to describe a person from Illinois:

    F Illinois B

    F translates the same as before, and the B is an illegitimate child.

    I guess since we got off the MOA (Motorcycle Owners of America for those that forgot.) forum short-cuts

    We could include other acronyms from around the web/text world.

    CDI - It a factor that many men try hard to find and some just have it. You can buy it, wear it, or smell it, but you have to maintain it at great cost to keep it.

    Any ideas?

    I guess there would be an opposite "GDI or DDI"

    Because most guys or dudes dig it when chicks ride bikes.

    Which would make a new one

    CTRB - Chicks That Ride Bikes




    (I mean no disrespect to women has a whole when I use the term "Chicks". It's just been around as long as I have or longer)
