defining terms pls

I'm new to the forum so I'm not familiar with some of your terms. I do a search and it gives me threads with the abreviations in it but not the definition.

1. CCR (some kind of rally, I suppose)

2. ATGATT (safety gear, I assume)

3. G.A. (no idea)

Any others I should know about? BTW....I fingured out....WTF? hehe

I use www.acronymfinder.com. It's a great site and have found 99% of all acronyms used on this site there.

Some common ones I use quite often after years of forum posting:
  • FWIW = For what it's worth
  • DAMHIK = Don't ask me how I know
  • IIRC = If I recall correctly
  • FYYFF = Oops! Wrong forum! never mind... (go to advrider.com)
  • m13 = some jackass who frequents bmwlt.com

Talking Re: defining terms pls

Since no one else has chimed in, and I may have been the guilty party in having used this term which is quite common within my other community, General Aviation is commonly refferred to as G.A.

Sometimes we forget who we're addressing. and assume that everyone knows what the H--- we're talking about.

My bad!

But I do love CCR and I wear ATGATT, even on my short commute to work!
