They just needed a little more style and class - sadly they fell short and got the Beemers instead

Another interesting feature is that the %-column is based on the numbers of owners and not owner of bikes so right now the sum is 125%

I think it was me - I voted, but only realised afterwards that I wasn't signed in, so I voted again to register the bike make against my name...

For sure there is a problem with the poll.
When you are not loged in, you can vote even on every make that is possible.

So, what you need to do is break the poll down in model :-)

Explain how that works please. I can't post anything on any thread without being signed in. How do you post or vote in a poll without being signed in?

EDIT~ WHOOPS ... you are right! you can vote when unsigned in over and over! How does that work?
(no wonder BMW are leading)

Ted, you need to start over!

Something's a little odd; the sum of the % votes is 146.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
