    I rode around on a Hunquapillar for a bit. It rode a lot like a bike. That was my impression.

    If you are referring to my bike, then thanks! I like the bike with flatbars. I often have a large wire basket attached to the rack for carrying things. It's a really great bike for bashing around...
