I'm getting an "A" but prefered an "S". Voted "A".

I will be making my fastAr black into an "S" soon.

I suspect the reason is that it's more likely that the kind of person who would be an SE owner is more likely to hang out in a place like AdvRider than a person who would be an SM owner. That offsets that more SMs were probably sold (speculation).

I'd say this is also why the SD is showing up in such low numbers.

The proportion of A's to S' didn't change dramatically: so it's probably a combination of fewer 990's outright, plus the likelehood that the type of person who wanted an S was probably an early adapter and got a 950S.

Is it possible

That less than 300 people have been contributing all these posts to Orange Crush? Must be chattier than BMW owners.


Or have lots more to complain about

Seems to be winding down- do we really only have less than 330 owners?

Many of those votes are by single owners with multiple bikes, so...

Yup, it's a small butt enthusiastic bunch.

No doubt; but I don't know about "many". I tried to keep track of how many multiple bike owners there were based on respondents vs bike count. Up through about 130 total bikes I estimated there were 6 multi bike owners (assuming none had three). I know there is at least 1 poster with 3.

Because the moderators have told the SM owners to go post on "Road Warriors".

950SM & 950Adv, as well as a 450 RFS.

Really enjoying the new SM! I have absolutely no doubt that with somewhat more aggressive tires (TKC's in 17" comes to mind) that the SM would rip on graded dirt to moderate jeep roads.

Mine will stay shiny for a while, only because I have the Adventure with plenty of beauty marks already, with TKC's already mounted!

Don't feel left out...

I forgot to include a 990SM/SMR category; so just add them to the 950SM/R line if you have one (you lucky dog).

I'd add my new/used Super Duke to the poll, but I've already voted so I'm locked out.

Oh well, guess I'll have to just go out into the garage and look at her some more, while I await my new Leo Vince cans to be delivered today.

Happy birthday to me!

Tom
