The Police Horses of Mid-Market – Mounted SFPD iPhone Theft Patrol, 7th and Market Streets

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

You know, I think a cowboy from 150 years ago would totally get this scene. You have a constable with a hat and a gun and a pair of boots, mounted on a horsey, looking for thieves on Market Street near a set or train tracks:

Wouldn’t Every Walk in the Park be Better on a Segway Human Transporter?

Monday, March 16th, 2009

Don’t you just hate walking on the grass when you visit Golden Gate Park? Wouldn’t a stroll be so much better on a Segway Human Transporter? Of course.

This guy has it right – his “4WD” version of the Segway has big tires. All the better for riding on turf.

He’s a regular Segway Cowboy Outlaw:

Ballad of the Segway Cowboy Outlaw 

Its all the same, only the names will change
Everyday it seems were wasting away
Another place where the faces are so cold
I’d Segway all night just to get back home

Im a cowboy, on a Segway I ride
Im wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

Sometimes I charge, sometimes its not for days
And the people I meet always go their separate ways
Sometimes you tell the day by the bottle that you drink
And times when youre all alone all you do is think

I roll these streets, a loaded NiCad on my rack
I play for keeps, cause I might not make it back
I’ve rolled everywhere, still Im standing tall
I’ve seen a million faces smack into the wall

Im a cowboy, on a Segway I ride
Im wanted dead or alive
Im a cowboy, I got the night on my side
Im wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive
