This forum has a diverse cross section of drivers from all over the world. Some of the slang used is local and not always easily understood. I thought a Slang Dictionary would be good for a laugh/ reference.


Granny Trail - It's the "easy" trail that Polaris owners make to go around tough hazards, kidding Honda owners use granny trails too.... :)

Goose - When you come on hard to the throttle.

Ghost Walking - When quad drivers get off their bike and walk next to their quad as they go through a mud hole.

Hydro'd or Hydro Locked - When you suck water into your air intake and it chokes out your engine, water is preventing your pistons from reaching the top of their stroke. AKA Hydrostatic Lock.

Trail DJ - the guy who has his stereo cranked so loud, you can hear him before you see him.

Honey Hole - a muddy spot, usually the mud hole known as the best mud hole.

Swamp Donkey - Moose

Wobbly Pop's - Beer

OREO - Off Road Enforcement Officer, Police.

Rig - ATV or a UTV.

Three wheeling - what happens when you use a Visco-lok.

I'll have more later, feel free to post your off roader's slang.

I should quantify I was born and raised in Texas, west of the Trinity river. Everything east of that is a different world.
