Two-stroke engines are disfavored these days, of course.

Another Run for SFFD Engine #21: The Aftermath of a Routine Bicycle Accident in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Friday, February 19th, 2016

I guess this is one of my issues, the width of the Fell Street bike path – I think it’s too narrow. It’s being used a lot more now than back when it was widened from 8 feet to 12 feet, IMO.

Anyway, this kind of thing happens all the time and it always seems to be E21 that turns up to haul people (and their bikes – it comes with you at no extra charge on your already quite hefty bill) away.

(Hey, who would get better medical attention after an accident – Princess Diana back in the 1990’s or a homeless person of the 94117 in 2016? It’s not even close.)

ASSIGNMENT DESK: Somebody ought to go on a ride-along with this crew and then write about it…

Here’s What Your Bicycle Needs: A Gasoline Engine, So You Can Sound Like a Motorcycle – But Where’s the Helmet?

Friday, July 24th, 2015

Anywho, in CA, you need an approved helmet to legally operate this kind of motorized bicycle:

It makes such a big noise considering how small a ride it is…

(Oh, so that’s what the inside of a CalTrain station looks like. I’d never been.)

Old BMW’s Never Die, They Just Retire to Daly City – Boxy Bimmers on the Hillside

Friday, July 25th, 2014

Ah, BMW’s 528e – The Low Rev Modest Driving Machine

Boxy Bimmers on the hillside,
Boxy Bimmers made of ticky tacky
Boxy Bimmers on the hillside,
Boxy Bimmers all the same.
There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same
