Vibrant urban slang – which I guess must be Ebonics from all the n*gga references – has highjacked one of the anglophone terms for footbike – kickbike – to mean a party, I guess as in ‘kick back’ your heels.

Me, I’m going to start investing in handbaskets.

UPDATE: This just occurred to me; I am a little slow at times. The way to avoid this is by using hashtag searches: Here’s the Twitter search for #kickbike
