Anyone else get a survey call?
A survey company called me a week ago wanting to see if I would be willing to take a survey. Normally, I decline those things SUPER FAST but this guy seemed to have knowledge of how long I had owned my Cross Country and appeared to have represented himself as having been hired by Victory (or so I thought). They wanted to know what I thought of it and if I would buy it again if I had the chance. Of course my answer was a resounding YES. Best decision in YEARS.
The guy didn't ask much more about my choice or why I liked it so much as he wanted to know what other bikes I had considered and seemed REALLY interested in my opinions of the BMW bikes (even though I had mentioned H-D, Triumph, Honda GW and others). He asked things like "Did you consider the BMW 1600..." What features of the BMW did you not like, etc. He did "buffer" the converstation by then asking about the GW but he never did ask about the Triumph's or the Yamaha and when he was attempting to wrap up the conversation, I asked him "What about my thoughts on the XC vs. it's #1 competitor, the Harley Street Glide?" His response was that "Harley was not on his list" so he had no place to put any of my comments about the comparison of those two bikes. I got the feeling at the end that this was not a Victory-sponsored survey (as he had stated up front) but rather was a "fishing expedition" for potential BMW riders (or perhaps simply BMW trying to understand why Victory was increasing their business so significantly while BMW continues to struggle winning market share).
One other note: The interviewer did not seem to be particularly knowledgeable with the Victory bikes or even biking alone for that matter. He seemed to know a LOT more about BMW bikes than any other brand.
Anyone else get a similar survey call?
