Farkle

What does "Farkle" mean? Where did the phrase originate? After reading the boars - I'm still puzzled by "farkled up" "lots of farkles" etc... Anybody? ( I know - Jr Member rookie question).

Does "Prude" come from a combination of "Pretty" and "Rude"?

Re: Farkle

I'll agree with the term being used back in the 90s by the ST1100 guys.

The ST owners used it back then when I took a ride to one of their rallys with a ST100 friend.

Re: Farkle

I always thought it was related to the fact that they often don't work the first time you've installed them, causing you to shout a familiar expletive.

Calling them a "F**KLE!" it might get you in trouble...

Re: Farkle

I don't know, guys, after seeing some of the things Goldwing riders have attached to their motorcycles, I think definition #14 might be the appropriate one:

14. farkle

The term used to describe what happens when a clown gets diarrhea.

"Bob the pedophile clown farkled his pants after eating a bean burrito."
