Funny... I asked my son this question right after I posted the "What Brand RC" poll. He's 16 and says:

Suzuki- RC
Honda- Roczen
KTM- Dungey
Kawasaki- Villopoto
Yamaha- Reed or McGrath
Husky- Anderson

Me..... 58 coming up:

Suzuki- RC
Honda- Windham
KTM- Dungey (funny because I liked him on a Suzuki, too)
Kawasaki- Villopoto, Emig
Yamaha- McGrath
Husky- Anderson, although I Malcolm Smith wins on the real Husky


Suzuki- Roczen, Reed, and Stewart all rang a bell for both of us. The widest brand.

Honda- definitely the weakest for both of us. Sure... we can name riders and RC won like crazy on them, but it's weak. I see Barcia on a Yamaha and Tomac on a Kawi.

KTM- we go hard into enduros here... Taddy, David Knight, Jarvis, etc. Say "KTM" and I see a Red Bull emblem. For some reason I see a bunch of 250 riders who don't quite make the podium.

Kawasaki- I immediately see Mitch Payton in my head.

Yamaha- they're all blue. Sorry, Hannah.

Husky- I see silver paneled tanks. Son sees white bikes. I'd like to get graphics for my TC125 with silver panels...

Brand recognition is fun.
