Sports 125s

I'm not sure why, but every sub-20 year old male learning to ride a bike always buys these awful contraptions. Slick, curvy and yet pointy looking, with mad paintwork and a riding position that means chiropracty is not so much an appointment you make as an on-going process. They look like they'll go a million miles an hour, yet make a noise like a cat farting down a length of pipe and have a restricted top speed of 65mph.

I think the people who buy these things probably end up as the 'just passed my test' idiots who wear go faster leathers and buy a Fireblade as a first big bike and wonder why a week later they've broken a leg or worse.
