Wasn't it vote based?
It's not so much the Horde winning (like you said, the poll was player-based, Blizzard did nothing to encourage people to vote for X faction) as it is the sheer illogic of not putting both in anyway with a standard "thanks for voting, you're all winners" PR speech.
I don't know, I just found it surprising that they didn't include both.
I play horde toons and I voted the alliance bike cause I thought it looked different. I didn't really consider i'd have no toons to use it with haha ;p
Still, I think the alliance bike would have looked a lot better with normal tires.

If you made a horde character of any other class, it would not count the class mounts and end up missing 3 for achievement(except warlock/dk which would also be missing 1)
Hmm, I play Alliance all the time but I have a few Horde characters (mostly playing Iron Man with them).
I logged on yesterday on my lvl 46 horde ... and no bike in the mail.
Is it delivered in some other way or do you need to be max level ?
if the horde Side of the competition made a wooden trycicle with a moped engine with some chains slapped onti it it still would have won.
Anyone who denies this is pretty delusional tbh.
Both choppers are ugly. i would like to trade the horde chopper for 1 month subscription.
