Yep. Nearly every garage in American has a bike (or many) and most of them
are in really good shape because people don't use them much at all.
Additionally, the trend over the last 15 years has been towards 'off

so most of those near brand new bikes will have decent tires for riding
around on post apocalypse roads.
