Anyone know what this term means?

Post by FM-USA » Wed Jan 07, 2015 2:57 pm



I'm not sure if I dreamed this up or I subconsciously heard/read it somewhere.

In the realm of motorcycling, do you know what a "Tootsie Roller" is?


You're coming to a stop on your bike and you put your foot down for balance
and your foot (usually your toe) rolls on a small broken tree branch. Hence rolling your toe.

Term used for when you crash your bike and your body merges with the bike, rolling together forming an object quite similar looking, to that of a giant tootsie roll.

Skates, nope

Ya, did the search long ago.
tootsie, basically about the foot
tootsi is pretty much about Boots

ANYways, my "Tootsie Roller" is (I'll highlight & paste it)...
