What the report does not show is of the 11,000 users interviewed is how many of each brand were identified? For Example, was it like 8000 HD owners and 3 yamaha owners? how does ti break down?
I don't think Consumer reports would be trying to skew the findings in one way or another, but I doubt of the 11k it was an even number for each brand.
