"*Steed: Colloquial term in the bike community for one’s motorcycle. Origin comes from poorer riders who could not afford motorcycles, and so would glue cardboard wheels and fairings to their horses. These imposters would be caught out by calling their “motorcycle” a steed, and thus the term latched on."
