Breaking Bad but Looking Good: The Best Pontiac Aztek You Will Ever See – “Xtreme Futuristic Styling” of the Year 2000

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

Tourists get confused by terms like “DayPass” and try to ride these hefty bikes all day for “just $10.”

I’m guessing RPD won’t put up with this but IDK. As of yesterday AM, it was still there.

Anyway, sometimes I can’t tell, but this was the handiwork of the unofficial SFMTrA¬†and not our SFMTA…
