Glee?

I am seriously looking at a new '12 650 Strom. Just wondering where the moniker "Glee" came from. Odd name, seems to me.

There was a poll but it kind of died. Glee was by no means the unanimous choice. I personally would not utter it.

The GL comes from the Gladius origin engine. Call it whatever works for you.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

But the somewhat gay "Gladius" moniker was a bizzaro redo of the original SV650 platform. Never liked the photos of that bike, thankfully have never seen one, but they did make some nice tweaks to a fine engine if my 12 VStrom 650 is the result.

I certainly do not have a Gladius Wee, I've got a VStrom 650 (DL650A L2 if you need specifics) Nothing wrong with the performance, it's a great machine for my needs. Others can call it what they want, the only time it matters is when one needs specific parts.

There's no need to do it again.
