How many others failed to finish then? Or are you perhaps just assuming they broke down?

I'm not saying the Honda/Suzuki dominance is right or wrong. It's understandable riders will gravitate to machinery with the best turn of speed, especially when they are more affordable that the likes of MVs and Patons. But when that leads to a lot of bikes coming in that were hardly used at the time and certainly weren't dominant at the time, well, let's just say it changes the nature of the event and maybe doesn't encourage anybody else to enter any other type of bike.
