    What is it with modern scooters that getting the panels to fit after just removing a few screws can be a nightmare. You find yourself trying to line up 3 panels in a different plane to get the holes to line up.
    An easy job can take some time.

    @scootzmadness has just posted this rant on facebook so seeing as he has issues getting logged in I thought id post it for some of you to have a good giggle at

    Nothing is going right tonight. BMW broke down. Got a lift home, got the van and the car trailer. Went back to the BMW. BMW had a parking ticket for being in the local government's car park even though id gone in and explained the situation and was told it was fine. Loading the BMW up on the trailer, The winch dies and the police show up. Police question me and search both the van and the BMW. Then tell me I have ten minutes to push a BMW 745i onto a trailer by myself or they'll have both the van and the car towed. disconnected the trailer, chocked the wheels, dragged the BMW onto the trailer with the van, reconnect up and start to leave. Van goes into Limp mode. Misfire cylinder two and four. Somehow get it home. Five minutes later missus calls me "i've locked myself out of my car" so now i've got to ride 75 miles to go and open the car for her. Somebody please do me a huge favour and shoot me directly in the skull with a double barrel shotgun!

    Is it me,or are we sponsering knobhead bureaucratic money making ownership of programs on telly nowadays -
    1st it's TopGear.......the ensemble being removed because some dick pissed off one of it's notable stars,but now down to new money grabbing w*****s - the most entertaining mechanic with a sorted straight forward skill set is buggering off on principle.cause he realises the new set up for the show is looking after a bank balance.i.e.Wheeler Dealers

    When older folk think they know the lot and try to tell you that a two stroke has valves in the cylinder.
    just had a 30 min argument with my old man with him insisting the sym jet has exhaust and intake valves. even images of a two stroke cylinder and he still swears blind there are valves in it .

    ARGGGGGGH really maybe in your old 1940 bikes yeah dad but we are talking upto date twostrokes not some old rag and bone shaker you used to ride when you were a kid like 50+ years ago .

    cant blooming wait to tear of this jug give it to him and tell him to show me where the valve seats are the valve rods and the valves themselves lol !!!

    When your mowing the lawn and work out your lawnmower has a bigger capacity than your scooter.

    when your mowing your lawn and you know its sounds 100% more sweeter than your tuned scooter exhaust .

    its then you wonder why are you not just getting the lawnmower MOT'd Taxed and Vosa'd

    When they mark a little yellow box line round HUGE freaking holes in the road and expect you to see them from like half a mile away ..... theres one bloody bad hole right on the inside lane past my local asda down to mcdonalds , everytime your forced to swing wild to get past it, its slap bang where you would ride defensively

    The yellow box / circle isn't for you it's for the repair guys so that they know which one has been inspected and marked for repair.
    At least you know where it is lol
