Following are consumer items I'm "pretty much" brand loyal on....but price is always a consideration:

GM-Duramax/Allison (towing/reliability) but have owned a Toyota.
Goodyear or BFG tires
Justin boots
Folgers coffee, Edge shaving cream, Speedstick

Pretty much anything else...whatever my wife gets on sale!
LMAO about the speed stick, Folgers and edge shaving cream!!

I've been all over the place. Factory Yamaha, Facotry Kawasaki, Factory KTM, Factory Purple People Eater, and for now... I'm Factory Honda, so that's what brand I'm loyal to at the moment.

I'd just like to take this time to thank my sponsors: MaDad Factory Honda, ProCircuit Tires, Renthal Suspension, Factory Backing Goggles, Dunlop Engine Mods, and Alpinestar helmets (they had to pay me a looooot to wear their crappy stuff).

That's all for now... autographs later if you guys ask nicely enough...
Can I please PLEASE have an autograph??

How about anti-brand loyalty? Ive always owned Red or Yellow for some reason. I can say that I am not against buying Green or Orange but for some reason I just cant do Blue...I don't know why, I just can't do it. Maybe something to do with my favorite pros when I was a kid rode Red and Yellow, who knows.

Am I brand loyal???

Well sort of I've owned 1-Yamaha 1-Suzuki 5-Maico's 2-KTM's & 2-BMW's

I would love to add KTM #3 A new 300XCW wood's bike with an electric starter for those places you just can't get to the kick starter.

Judging by the last couple of trips out with you I'd say that the e-start will come in very handy for you...

I started back in the 70's with Kawie. I've owned everything since: 3 yam, 2 Hon, 1 Husky, 1 KTM, 2 Suz, 10 Kawie's! I went with the others because of finances, but just last year went back to Kaw and couldn't be happier! Not a slam, but never had any luck with Honda and will never own another! Winman

Started out in the early 60's on a Yamaha.
Then Montesa, Matchless, Triumph and then Honda (83). Been there every since (5) and considering a new 08 250X.

Update.....
Have Honda cars, generators and lawn mowers. Course I get a break.
The best ones were the 67 TR6C Triumph, 5 years without the head ever off and the 96 XR400 Honda with 8 years without the head off and raced desert with both of them.

Am I brand loyal, you bet. I have never ignored the hand that feeds me meaning no failures.

Actually if I didn't choose Honda I would be on a Yamaha as I think they are equally as good.
I also think that the 2 (Honda/Yamaha) are better than all the rest.
Just IMO.
