Gentleman Motorcyclists, Frisco

This one is from a Sunday on Cathedral Hill, so one supposes this scene might have had something to do with a wedding:

Let’s hope they got to the church on time…

[UPDATE: Oh they were participating in the 2016 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride.]

Three Things What are New the Past Decade in Frisco: Corporate Intercity Buses, Paper License Plate Abuse, and Private Taxicabs

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

1. Back in aught-seven was when I first heard of corporate buses taking workers to other cities. (Or maybe it was aught-six, I forget.) Of course we had Frisco institutions shuttling workers around, owing to our horrible, horribly corrupt SFMTA / MUNI mess, but people riding the freeways for hours a day, well this was new. Anyway, in the left corner of this shot you can see the distinctive Van Hool kink at the rear window.

2. That Porsche in the middle has its license plates at home. Back a decade ago, drivers didn’t go around for months and years without plates, but these days, they do, oh well.

3. And on the right, an Uber instead of a regular taxicab.

I think in Miami your car could be worth $3000 less for not having a goofy color, but here in Frisco it’s the opposite.

All right, get out there and conform, Fellow Citizens.

Frisco Traffic: Historic Streetcars, Bike Riders and Unregistered Ferraris

Properly registering and insuring a pricey weekend car is prohibitively expensive in California, on a per-mile basis, so that’s why so many people don’t do it. You gotta pay them “use taxes” to get started and then you face annual ad valorem taxes.

Oh well.

I’ll tell you, the term Frisco is having a hell of a decade.

*As seen at Grant and Fresno. “Filthy Animal,” “See You In Hell,” and “FRISCO,” natch.
