Far superior for what specific purpose though? Determining which brand I should buy next? Or understanding what current owners think of their recent purchases? I would concur that anecdote needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but I'd also argue that this survey is, essentially, massively summed anecdote (which is ironically what an internet forum is). This is not really an actual study about motorcycle reliability. So, again, take it with a grain of salt. Agree with you there.
