Men in suits on scooters.

So I was in downtown Los Angeles today. This is really the only place where you can still see men wearing suits in LA. As I walked down Figueroa St I saw coming in my direction three young men in suits riding those electric scooters that you rent that have become so ubiquitous that it's hard to remember a time when you didn't have to walk an obstacle course as they randomly lay across the sidewalks.

So down the street they came and I just watched in disbelief. To be quite honest they looked absolutely ridiculous. Now in a Progressive city like Los Angeles where civic leaders would love for everyone to abandon their cars entirely which is not practical in Los Angeles at all, I would think that maybe riding a bike would be a bit more dignified especially if such a bike was vintage of sorts. Maybe the typical cubical just isn't big enough to keep a bike and I honesty can't blame anyone from feeling skittish about locking up a bike in public downtown Los Angeles since it's commonplace to see only the few pieces of bikes that are secured being all that's left. Anyway, it was quite a sight.

I really wish you'd unlimbered your phone and caught a video of that. It would be choice.

I'm pretty sure the OP is referring to standing scooters, like a skateboard with a handle bar.

Ahhh... I'm trying to picture what a stylish version of one of those would be in that case, but I gave up... :(
