Our Electric-Powered Personal Transportation Future – These People Don’t Just Say, “MUNI SUCKS,” They Do Something About It

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Full face helmet, natch. (I mean, you don’t want to be like one of those helmetless FordGoBike “bikeshare” rental bike users going over the handlebars on Market due to the front tires getting stuck in an SFMTA streetcar rail chasm, right?)

So many ways to avoid MUNI we have in this Year 2017…

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Well, obvs. this is better than the likes of a clunky, 40-pound, Ford Motor Company GoBike “bikeshare” rental bike. For one thing, it’s got an electric motor:

But I don’t know where this rental bike is from. Hence the mystery…

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

Bro just goes around the block around the block lately, with no particular destination in mind – or so it appears.

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

Hey! Speaking of MUNI and diesel, the term “Biodiesel” is a lie the way the SFMTA uses it.

How about that?

Hey! Speaking of MUNI and petroleum products, which has spilled more into San Francisco Bay – the famous oil-spilling Cosco Busan or MUNI? 

Can you guess? It’s MUNI.

In closing, MUNI sucks.
