Question ryan air taxi speeds?

Ok, this might sound daft, but I really have to ask...

Why is it that the majority of Ryan air aircraft appear to taxi twice the speed of everybody else? Am I missing something here?

Just today I witnessed some high speed manouvering on the apron at Leeds.

That Old 737 did'nt look to comfortable coming off the taxi way at such speed, heck knows what the passengers must be thinking!
Certainly the Captain of the Dash 8 on the next stand was unimpressed.

So, Ryan air chaps, whats the deal?
Does it actually save enough time to make it worth the risk?

Thanks in anticipation.
