Satisfied owners means the owners like the bikes and points for design, engineerings teams. Low sales (all sales are down) means no points for marketing, advertising & sales efforts. What I take from that is if you bought one, you'd probably be happy with it. Owner satisfation surveys by a 3rd party are about as good a survey result you'll find. That means more to me then track time. These arent racing bikes, but heck, people race lawnmowers & farm tractors too.

You mean like anyone who buys a 700 pound longstroke V-Twin when there are lots of smooth running uber-powerful 3 and 4 cylinder designs to chose from?

Resorting to insults is a sure sign of an argument that ran out of gas, pretty much what one would expect from a squid.
