I hadn’t thought of this new biz for a couple years, but now here it is, spotted in the wilds of the Financh:
I guess Bro here just drove a rental Prius to somebody’s home, took out his Bianchi and is now heading home? I think that’s how things work.
As seen over the Financh:
I guess you throw in a little image stabilization and a soundtrack in post and then you’ve got yourself the opening scenes of your movie…
Click here to join in on the fun, and oh what’s this, a little dis on the competition:
These “discounted” rates have an inflated price to start with and are then supposedly “discounted”, so in the end, the rate is NOT discounted at all.If you are a photographer and considering helicopters, remember, small helicopters (R22) are “nervous” and wind affected, unstable and yes a little cheaper, but “not worth it” in the words of actual clients. Your safety is worth far more. Again, don’t get fooled by inexperienced flight schools filling downtime, or the cheaper and unstable “R22”, or even a “drone”, although their plenty of salesman out there selling their so called “service” the are usually incapable of delivering the broadcast quality shot you seek.
So yes, this chopper is big for a Robinson, but pretty small nevertheless. Keep a look out for the big boys when you’re up there…
You have many legal choices here, heading west at Baker – you can go on the bike path or you can go on the left side of the left lane of Fell, or you can go on the right side of the right lane of Fell, or (assuming you’re feeling especially vigorous and can keep up with Frisco’s version of a freeway even though it’s going uphill in this area) you can TAKE THE LANE:
I’ve seen people doing all of these things, but 99% of the time, ppl take the bike path, as they should. And this especially applies to rental bike tourists, who generally don’t seem to be aware of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Bicycle Path. Hence the wayfinding sign TO PANHANDLE PATH (even though it’s actually pointing exactly AT the path, oh well.
But these signs are kind of small, so I’ll still expect to see tourists on Fell Street oh well. And then on the return trip to their Union Square or Twitterloin hotels, I’ll still expect others to come east on the bike path and then go the wrong way on Fell for a couple blocks until they give up swimming upstream at Divisadero – that’s where the helmetless blond Euros with the 12 weeks of annual vacay generally seem to lose their religion to go the wrong way on, as stated, Frisco’s version of a freeway, oh well…

It’s Rental Vintage Cars:
The Motorized Tricycles of Frisco’s Financial District – Are You More Batman or More Bieber? Polaris Slingshot vs. GOcarWednesday, July 13th, 2016
And look, another trike on the same block, more or less, just moments later. It’s much cheaper. (And born in Frisco, just like those people who are quite proud to tell you they’re “born and raised” here and whatnot.)
This Bieberesque couple looked like they were both 14 – I don’t know what any age cutoff might be.
And best of all, the two-stroke GOcar engines are all gone bye bye.
All right, choose your tricycle.
