As seen about town:
Looks like somebody is trying to get her to keep a promise?
This was the promise, back in aught-twelve:
In 2012 the San Francisco Board of Supervisors enacted a new violation in the SF Transportation Code to address inappropriate parking of oversized vehicles on city streets. SFTC Section 7.2.54 prohibits parking a vehicle over 22 feet in length or over 7 feet in height, or camp trailers, fifth-wheel travel trailers, house cars, trailer coaches, mobilehomes, recreational vehicles, or semi-trailers, between the hours of 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. when SFMTA signs are posted giving notice.
And yet this is the reality, in 2016. (I’ll note that the one in front has the brand-name “BRAVE” written on it in large letters – that’d certainly be true if the owner/renter planned to leave it there past midnight.)
The millionaire homeowners of Fell wanted these rides gone from their view, but, well this is what they’re staring out when they walk down their stoops these days.
Of course this photo was made in the daytime, so maybe this caravan moves out every night to neighboring streets without the SFMTA ban? IDK, cause I’m sleeping during those hours, usually.
But actually, a ticket for just $110 sounds cheap compared with the cost of a tiny Airbnb apartment in the 94117 what could go for double that, easily, for one night.
I’ll have to do an RV nose count next time I’m skulking about the Panhandle after midnight…

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:

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].”
