Since my last bike was a Suzuki (i know, i know) I can't say that I am brand loyal. Although, I doubt I will ever have anything other than a Honda now that I have my RR. However, I keep up on the progress of technology, race results, etc. by reading Road Racing World, Road RacerX, etc. Also, attending the races (Barber, Mid-Ohio, Laguna Seca, Road Atlanta) and speaking to people with different bikes to get their perspective. Not just on the bike itself but aftermarket accessories and their performance on different models.
For example: A dude I ride with has the new paint scheme (yellow/black) 50th Anniversary Yamaha R6. He likes the way it looks but complains that the seat height is too high (almost 34 inches!), it runs waaaay to hot, and he doesn't like the front end...though he says he'll get used to it.
Not my opinion of a good way to spend that kind of $$$ on something I don't LOVE!
anyway, that's my two cents.
