I know survey's can get out of hand, but it might be interesting to find out how good the Versys motor really is. I was thinking something simple like:
Over 10k - No Problem _ Problem _
Over 20k - No Problem _ Problem _
Over 30k - No Problem - Problem _
................................................
Over 100k -No Problem Problem -
etc.

This might be linked to a graph showing how many bikes are running strong (as I believe will play out) and percentages.

I just read a post that mentioned reliabililty concerns and it occurred to me that we are not collecting data on the forum.

Can this be done? Would this be interesting information for the forum?

That sounds great about just listing mileage and such for the bikes/engine reliability.

Though what would be really cool (and a lot of info to maintain) would be: miles on bike, ridden hard or not, broke in by dealer method or motoman method, 2nd/3rd owner or original owner, performance upgrades, climate ridden in (Rocky Mountains, Florida coastline, Arizona, other countries) and all kinds of other stuff. Some type of database that would allow users to put in their information and then update itself to reflect all the data shown...now that would be pretty cool I think!

Well people could provide their information on the forum and then a few people could collaboratively fill that info into a spreadsheet in google docs, or ms office live. Once it is set up the file could be made available to all members

Exactly, set up a database for the information, but a web interface for the input and output would be fantastic! (Kinda like plugging in your information, then being able to click on links that would provide up to the date info that could be displayed with graphs, percentages, etc.) Oh...I don't know exactly how to do that stuff BTW...but whomever has the skills, I'm rooting for you.

Polls for Members

That is what I was thinking too. I am a member on the FJR Forum, and their interface software has capability for members to create Polls and the data is updated immediately as members input data.
It can get out of hand though. I never created one but did input when I felt the member was trying to collect valid info about the bike. I always felt that was something best controlled by a moderator.
I don't know this site well enough yet to know if members can create Polls. That would serve the purpose for collecting simple data wouldn't it?
I am not a software guy so correct me if I am way out in left field here.

Ok, I gave it a shot. I am not sure how to tell how many members we have and obviously the number will not be exact since some members don't own their bike now. But, it's a start and maybe someone will come up with a better way to do this.
Might be interesting, might not.
