No Bias

Must not be many left-pondians voting, or Harley-Davidson would win in a landslide (due to “religious” belief).

Victory not included? Sure they are not a big seller in the UK, but then neither is MV Agusta.

I have had 5 different triumphs in the last 10 years, other than punctures I have never been left by the side of the road, and never had an issue with corrosion, despite riding about 10k per annum all weathers and hardly ever cleaning them. I had a one year old Susuki that was a total rust bucket after a winter of neglect, my current VFR1200 is less than a year old with 8K on the clock and paint is coming off the swingarm, kick plates look tatty, the rest  including exhaust looks crap but when cleaned looks like new, its reliable, but not a great or comfortable bike.

I'd have to say I've had Kawas, Yamas, Triumphs, and overall they were all pretty reliable. All had good and bad, but I think as long as you don't get a BMW fully loaded with electronics, reliability should be pretty decent accross the line.

Moto Guzzi

While understanding that this is not a scientific study I found it interesting that Moto Guzzi's showing was so low. I've owned a Norge for three years and have not had any issues with it. From following Guzzi blogs it would seem that their reliability is just fine but with anything mechanical things can and do happen. Still, knowing that Guzzi's market share is low how is it that the perception shown from this poll is that Guzzi fairs so low? Hearsay? Rumor? Gut feeling? Curious.
