Nah, it's the twist and go scooters I particularly hate. It's not just the young lads with a death wish either. Some of the older riders without L plates also ride like utter morons, weaving through traffic at speed, overtaking on (on the inside on) pedestrian crossings (when other vehicles have stopped to let a pedestrian cross). It's a wonder any of them survive the ride home. They are organ donors definitely.
Prime example a while back when I was in a Honda Suzuki shop a customers mate dropped a Suzuki Burgman 650 off for a Ignition switch recall and inquired about the servicing costs, How about according to Suzuki in the first 30,000 KM's they state that there is 36 hours of time involved in maintenance, That's more than an hour in the shop for every thousand K's of riding Gee it's almost cheaper to run a TZ 750 seeing as they ran the Lemans 24 hour sucessfully with less maintenance.
