I don't know how it got started, unless it is because quads originated from dirt"bikes".[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/img] I call ATV's "bikes" sometimes.

How did Bike athletic supporters get their name?

Sure, there's a pair in there (in most cases), but it ain't a pair of wheels. [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/img]

Quad's just a bike with a motor and training wheels.

I find that the people who have just gotten into riding tend to do that. Everyone else I know calls them fourwheelers or quads.
