I know I'm new here...(anti Glee for a name thread)

and don't want to offend the veterans. But can we come up with a nickname other than Glee? I mean, it's white, not pink. :mrgreen:

No. It will always be Glee.

Say it enough times and it loses all other meaning, much like 'Wee'.

I will never say the "G" word, it is just too goofy sounding. I like to call it the Wee2, it goes well with the new Vee2.

I think I agree too. Wee vs. Vee makes some sense but I don't understand where Glee came from. Wee2 at least sounds like the 2nd version of the Wee.

Is there a nickname for the new 1000? Like Vee2, the 2nd version of the Vee?

I like you already

Don't worry, you won't offend most of us. There are many here that don't want any association with that word, not only is it silly, it just doesn't make sense.

It's no harder to type WEE2/WEEII than it is GLEE

If you want to help get rid of the usage of this word, add this line to your signature:

Model nicknames that make more sense: 02-12 DL1000 - VEE | 2014+ 1000 ABS - VEE II | 04-11 DL650 - WEE | 2012+ 650 ABS - WEE II

Only by working together can we rid the world of this detestable name
