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:

The latest:

“Scott Owades, Lone[-ly] Mountain

As a transportation fanatic, I’m excited to be able to bring new commuting options into the neighborhood. My company, Chariot, is launching The Great Haight tomorrow, running down Haight & Oak St.

The route runs from 6:30 – 9:30 AM and 4:30 – 7:30 PM, and the pickups are:

Haight & Stanyan
Haight & Clayton
Haight & Masonic
Lyon & Oak
Oak & Pierce
Oak & Webster

While Muni serves Market St. well, it’s a pain to commute on Muni to SoMa & Caltrain. If you’re going in that direction, you should give this a [try].”

What It Looks Like When the Feds Do Slow Orbits Above the 94117, One Supposes

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

The track of this airplane high over SF yesterday would look something like this

I don’t know who else would be doing this kind of thing, is what I’m saying.

We can hear you Feds, the constant whine that doesn’t go away, that you can easily hear if there’s no traffic going by you.

Just saying…
