Here are the results of the general motorcycle ownership survey!

Thanks you everyone who filled one in. 

The general motorcycle owners survey will continue for a few more weeks.  That should give me enough time to streamline technical issues with the software.  Yes - I know page formatting still needs some works.

If you use frame sliders are they for looks or protection ?
Protection 70 Looks 9 What? 15     Blank 4
New model motorcycles regardless of manufacturer seem to look the same ?
Yes 12 No 42 Sort of 44     Blank 0
Should a range topper have unique styling from the rest of the range ?
Yes 37 No 5  Maybe 15 What? 11 Blank 0
Did you consider a BMW motorcycle before the Suzuki Hayabusa ?
Yes 7 No 90         Blank 1
All new bikes are speed limited in some way - does it effect your decision to purchase the Hayabusa ?
Yes 5 No 89         Blank 0
Does the Suzuki Hayabusa have more street cred than a Kawasaki ZX-14 ?
More 80 Less 4 Equal 8 What? 6 Blank 0
Does the Hayabusa have more street cred than a Suzuki GSX-R 1000 ?
Yes 70 No 10 Equal 0 What? 5 Blank 0
Did you base part of your decision to purchase on street cred?
Yes 44 No 47 What? 6     Blank 0
Are standard performance statistics like 0-100Kph or quarter mile etc... more important than in-gear statistics?
Yes 33 No 46 Equal 19     Blank 0
IF you don't have a Suzuki what brand is your current motorcycle?
No Motorbike Yet 4            
Kawasaki 3            
Yamaha 3            
Honda 5            
Suzuki (Other) 0            
Triumph 0            
Other 4            
IF you have a Hayabusa are you happy with it?  
Yes 85 No 0 Sort of 4     Blank 9

My analysis of the results:

It is clear that we are a largely sensible lot regarding the performance questions, that we recognise that in-gear times are just as important as other measures.  More to the point the issue of speed is not an issue! 

I'm also glad to know that I'm not the only one who thinks that range topping models should look different from the rest.

There are also the lucky few who have more than one motorcycle!
