I like most of them and trade about every two years just for the fun of it. There is only one bike that I would not buy and its any thing HD.

Added it up, I'm not really a brand snob, but over the years and over 300,000 miles its been a string of BMWs. Now have an old Ural and am totaly hooked

In sheer numbers it's Honda for me. Also a string of Yamahas and a Triumph before I discovered the GS. (This is about street bikes so I'll leave out several MX and trials bikes in my younger years.) Since I learned in the dirt I've always been more comfortable and felt far safer on an upright bike. Cruisers and their sloth-riding position have zero appeal for me.
But my taste in bikes shifted as my riding style morphed into more of a long distance checking out the back roads thing. I have more miles on my BMWs than all the other brands I've owned combined.
I got a sidecar to travel with my dog. He never complains, is delighted to be with me, approves of my dietary choices, is a social butterfly who helps me meet folks, appreciates a good beer, snuggles better than my wife, and hangs on my every word as if it's the most profound thing he's ever heard.

For me, it's been BMW all the way except for a Viffer a few years back. Because I am tall and long legged, BMWs just plain fit my frame. That, plus the shop offered unlimited test rides on their Beemers made me a BMW customer for life.
