So I guess these kids are just more daring and more skillful that bikes don't do much for them anymore. I started to think that for the most part, when I do see people on bikes, it's those guys who are all dressed up for the part. They got their bike pants, weird-looking helmets, gloves and sunglasses. So naturally, the question I had was "Doesn't anybody ride their yonkas simply for fun anymore?" I admit I have seen some riding a low-rider spyder bike to go buy a cuarto. But, I guess teens start driving so early and many of them own a car that there's a great number of them that simply bypass the yonka stage.
