Lane-Splitting on the Wrong Side of the Yellow Line: How to Travel West on Eastbound Post Street – One Simple Trick!

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

Does this woman know what she’s doing? I can’t tell. Anyway, she was making her way to the intersection of Post and Webster by using a wrong-way lane. I’ve never seen this:

So, as a bike rider would feel free to pass cars queued up for a red light on the right side of the lane, she did so on the left side, except the left side in this case was eastbound Post. You can’t do that, Man!

If a car driver did this, s/he inevitably get stuck, but I guess with a scooter you can always nose your way back to where you belong with a quickness, is that the idea?

A dangerous game, IMO…

The Stand-Up, Motorized Scooter Gangs of the Western Addition – A Slow Speed Chase on Fell, Oak, Complete with SFPD Pursuit / Escort

Monday, December 21st, 2015

What’s this, a bunch of Bros loudly two-stroking themselves down Oak Street? Sure – you’ll hear them first, from blocks away, and then smell them later, what with the old-fashioned (and these days, widely banned) two-stroke style engines, which literally burn motor oil, by design:

Here’s a wider view. These Bros hail from the East Bay and the Central Valley, one assumes, based upon their apparel:

And in the middle of this loud scrum, it’s two members of the SFPD Motor Patrol:

Were they chasing or escorting – I couldn’t tell.

Later on, this crew tried to regroup on Masonic:

Now heading west on the sidewalks of Oak:

Leaving you with this, the last Bro I saw, GoProing his way up Fell:

If You Have a Motorcycle, Feel Free to Illegally Cut Through the Golden Gate Park Panhandle, Like This

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Getting your motorcycle from south of the Panhandle to north could take you something on the order of two to five minutes, depending, assuming you’re not already on Masonic or something.

But cutting through on the north-south walking paths, well that’s easy as pie, ‘specially when the lights sync up nicely.

As here, where Bro didn’t even have to stop for traffic.

Easy:

If You Have a Motorcycle (or Something Smaller Like a Moped), Feel Free to Travel Through the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

You know, the way everybody else does.

As here, on the “300 block” of Ashbury, or what would be 300 block but for the Golden Gate Park Panhandle being there. But no matter, just wait for the light and then head north or south on the walking paths:

This will save you all kinds of time going from Fell to Oak or Oak to Fell.

This didn’t used to be a thing, but now it’s a thing, especially at night…
