True - I was just out in Thailand and 90% of the population are on scooters and most are Honda C90s or the newer Dream 125s. We had a Yamaha 125 the whole time and it was perfect - twist and go, tight turning circle, excellent fuel mileage, and fits 4 in (slightly reduced) comfort!

You couldn't ride anything bigger out there due to their "alternative" views on right of way on the roads (i.e. they just pull out on the road without looking) so going more than 45 mph will end up with you dead.

Unacceptable.... totally unacceptable, they should last longer than that AND with it being close to a safety issue, even more unacceptable......

Surely that depends how long your tyres last for? Granted Lea would be changing his every few hundred miles, but I heard Ash gets 10,000 miles out of his tyres. :shock:

I wonder if with a trading standards/safety investigation done, why every buell owner whose bearings fail before sub 10K miles shouldn't have them replaced for free. As Spen says it is a safety concern
