Wee / Glee

I understand the Wee as the smaller V; Where did Glee come from?

2012 model version of the Wee... It was updated so we needed a new name for it... Hence Glee...

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

Why the New Name?

I feel like the new nick names are like the KLR guys with a different color BMW logo.. I am just plain and simple proud to call it V-Strom.. no need to blend it into a GS. Thats what it seems in going on here.. as a matter of fact, she is referred to as a 'V-Strom Adventure' because thats what it is.. If we wanted a GS, we should have gotten a GS. Glee/Wee/Vee its all just a V-Strom! We love the V-Strom more than some mothers love their children. We don't shorten the word country to cunt, do we.. if it looks like a Duck, walks like a Duck and quacks like a duck, its called a DUCK.

That being said, I am glad someone translated this for me, I was going mad, wondering what effin bike i actually had! 2012 V-Strom Adventure!

RIDE MORE. WORK LESS. LIVE MORE.

The different models have differences both mechanical and electrical. Asking and answering technical questions requires knowing which model is involved. That's why the nicknames are there to limit typing when asking and answering questions.

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

Nah, there will always be some of us around happy to keep the GLEE moniker alive and well I might even own one someday.
