Punch a Baby

Am I the only one who wants to punch a baby when someone says "jixxer" instead of "GSXR?"

Yeah, I'm one of those types that get slightly annoyed when people pronounce acronyms. I hate when people pronounce Taurus SHO's as Taurus Shows.

I don't know why it is a pet peeve. Just is. My wife hates stuffed animals in the rear windows of cars. Makes her mad. lol I guess we all have our quirks.

off topic: I know the cbr is supposed to be the all time best selling 600cc...why is it that there seems to be a huge market for used gsxr600's if that is the case? I mean huge like hands down used gsxr's are way more common to come across

cause everyone wants to sell them. And everyone wants one until they have one.


I hated the gixxer pronunciation for YEARS. COuldn't stand it. Keep in mind, I never hung out with people who rode, just in general car crowd. Now that I ride, I've come to accept it, cause that's what all the riders call it.

How about the waitress who says "No Problem" to anything and everything that you order or ask for.

Baby on Board signs. Collide with any other car you like, but don't bump one with this sign in the back window.

It only bothers me when the person saying it clearly thinks that the only way to say it is "gixxer" and that you aren't cool if you don't say it that way, or if you don't ride one for that matter.

I use it interchangeably, no reason for when I do or don't, unless I am talking to someone who doesn't know bikes, then I definitely say "GSXR"

you must hate just about everyone, and probably yourself when they talk about the n.a.s.a. and call it "nasa"

I've got a Gixxer, a Veefalo, a Speedie and a... um, SV.

And when I am not riding any of them, I drive a Kimchee Mercedes.
