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

As seen on Steiner in the Western Addition:

Definitely seeing more of these red scooters parked on the streets of San Francisco lately, for better or worse. That’s just my observation.

It’s time to take a look at what the peanut gallery has to say.

‘Bout what I expected – seems as if “range anxiety” was/is the big issue.

Oh, a new pricing scheme

Segways are easy to drive, until they’re not.

(I still feel sorry for this lady. She was just trying to have fun with her crew…)

It’s hard to tell these days, in the 94117.

Like at first, back in 2012, I thought Lyft was just a bunch of hipsters with giant pink mustaches on their cars.

Lane-Splitting on the Wrong Side of the Yellow Line: How to Travel West on Eastbound Post Street – One Simple Trick!

So, as a bike rider would feel free to pass cars queued up for a red light on the right side of the lane, she did so on the left side, except the left side in this case was eastbound Post. You can’t do that, Man!

If a car driver did this, s/he inevitably get stuck, but I guess with a scooter you can always nose your way back to where you belong with a quickness, is that the idea?

A dangerous game, IMO…
