Not brand loyal, but between my wife and myself we've had 6 Hondas (three at the present time). There are some brands I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. Either they don't make a bike that interests me in the least (for example Harley Davidson) or because of inferior workmanship (though cool as all get out, Royal Enfields are nothing but junk).

Not brand loyal for riding, but brand particular when it comes to buying.

If we all liked the same things it would be a pretty boring world! I've had 8 Harley's over the years and not one problem with any of them! Not even one drop of oil on my garage floor

when I am the one shelling out cash (sponsoring), I expect loyalty from the "receiver" (the brand, or the company). Loyalty to me, the customer - not the other way around. For that same reason I hate to wear clothing with any brand name on it - they should pay me to advertise them on my chest, or wherever else. For the same reason I hate any "branding" on any appliances, bikes included. Now, it is not always possible to de-badge every thing I own, but I'd surely love to do that. Meanwhile. I de-brand as much as I possibly can...

So far I've been loyal to Honda's, but that does not mean I bash other bikes. I bash other bike riders, cause they are sooooooo disgusting, egotistical, know-it-all, opinionated, narcissistic, retards.

JUST KIDDING !!

I've heard it said, "The best bike in the world is the one I'm riding".

One thing I've learned over the years, NEVER put down someone else's bike.

Save all judgement for the rider. JUST KIDDING AGAIN !!

I have respect for all motorcycle riders and their choices. Diverse, yet a common bond amongst all, the way it should be.

I do tend to pick one brand and stick with it. It's just easier on tools and maintenence. Plus you get to know the brand, and get less surprises that way.

Yes... But only to the bike I currently own at the time.

I am brand loyal in two other areas though

Cell Phone = Samsung/Android
Pianos/keyboards = Yamaha

Those two areas I have found consistently the best products and user experiences.

Small truck yeah ..I am a Toyota fan. I won't buy another brand small truck other than Toyota. Wife has a RAV 4 but (likes the Tuscon as a next vehicle) That side swinging tire hanging back door is getting to her. But thankfully, the thing won't die.
