    Its not the bikes that are the problem, its the carelessness by these youths that causing the problem. When you feel you superman and feel you can pyass in the road, weeve in and out of traffic, over take, wear no helmet etc, its not the bike its the driver. It have responsible youths and men out there riding how they posed to be but no one sees that. The youth is my pana but I aint going support the stupidness they going on with on dem bikes. Like I said blame the drivers not the bikes.
