What are the most common bikes?

I know this kinda a wierd question and a hard one to answer but what do you guys think are the most common bikes.

IE: I would say Civics, Ecipses and V6 stangs are the most common cars in the road.

thanks

All kinds of Harleys...

For sportbikes, seems like GSXR's and R1/R6's are real popular these days, followed by CBR's and Ninjas.

Most Common bikes = Cruisers - 90% of all motorcycles sold are cruisers/standards

Most Common Sportbike = Honda 600

More like Gixxers are like vaginas...every chick who rides seems to have one...That or an R6.

I tried to Google this, and couldn't find anything about which is the highest selling sportbike...now I'm curious. SOMEONE WITH MORE TIME OR SKILLS THAN ME -- LOOK IT UP!

cruisers are the most popular in america, I think the sportster is the best selling motorcycle (could be wrong) but for sport bikes, I would tend to think that the Suzuki GSXR is the most popular

I see Gixxers everywhere. I think they are the most common sportbike, then CBR's, Yammy's, Ninjas, and then the rare Triumph.

It has to be Gixxers, because they are stolen the most.

Yeah, I forgot the pasta rockets. They seem to be more common than Triumphs.

I see a lot of cruisers. Most of the sportbikes are at starbucks.

Cruisers (harley and jap)are everywhere. I see them more on the highway, and while commuting.

I think most people have blinders on when it comes to makes of motorcycles. (re: sportbikes) It's like the only brands they care or know about are HONDA KAWASAKI SUZUKI and YAMAHA. That is until a duc, a buell, a trumpet, or any other cool non-jap-4 bike rolls up. And then they still don't know what the f*ck it is. I can remember at least 3 occasions when some guy said to me "hey, nice ducati"
