The plugs are a choice that you have to make yourself, just like the battery. If you don't have any problems starting the bike, and your battery is shot, do you get another wet cell battery that has been working fine, or do you get the Maintenance Free battery? The second costs a lot more, but you don't have to check your water levels, and it will fix the hot start problem if you should happen to have/get it. Similar with the plugs. You can have regular inexpensive plugs that start the bike, but you have to change on occasion, or you can get the iridium plugs that never need changing (and everyone raves about), but are expensive.
Then you have your obligation to keeping people employed making plugs, or keeping excess plugs out of the dumps.
