I like my bike because it runs fast and it does not spend much. and I don't like my bike because of sometimes it switches off during riding.

 

That sounds dangerous man, switching off whilest riding. should check it out before something serious happen. Imagine, riding at 80km/hr and suddenly it offs by itself and there is a car behind who happens to drive at 100km/hr.
