sportbike words you hate

I saw something like this on the wera board a long time ago, but I decided that I would bring it up here.

I HATE it when people say the following:

Yoshi--It's Yoshimura R&D, Yoshimura, Yosh, but never Yoshi. Yoshi sounds like a Tele-Tubbie with a purse.

Gixxer--it's a GSX-R, deal with it.

Yami--is Yamaha that friggin' long? What's next Hon?

Fizzer--I occasionally use this, but it's still really lame.

Scummit Point/Slippery Point--the track was paved 3 years ago, get over it. Great track today. Still better than the street.

Chick Strips--If you're so fast that you have none, go to the track see how slow you are. Until then, you impress no one.

Kan-o-tuna--it was funny like 8 years ago, it's become the "why did the chicken cross the road" of sportbikes. Not everyone can afford to swap bikes every time sport rider tells them to.

Stuntaz--When did proper english pass me by? Stunters. Say it with me, "STUN," "TERS." I know you can say R's and type R's. You don't say Gixxa and Fizza. Oh jeez, I think I started a trend...

Po-po--the first time I saw a thread on running from "po-po" I thought they were being chased by a giant piece of crap like in Attack of the Killer Tomatoes." Being an 18 year old, upper middle-class kid in the 'burbs with a $10,000 motorcycle is pretty much all the proof that I need that you have no ghetto credibility.

please feel free to add your own, or call me an @#$hole

How about mispronouncing the already established buzz words of sport bikes?

A guy at my work calls Gixxer's, "Gexxer's". Gives me a twinge in my neck everytime he says it.

I guy at my local shop calls my bike a 'face first'. He says it as an insult but I like it better than riceburner or crotchrocket.
