Illegal-Riding LimeBike Motorized Rental Scooter Bro Salmons His Way Up a Parade

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

Not to pick on LIME, as this just as easily could have been a SPIN or BIRD bro:

Oh well.

Ford’s Bike “Share” System has been Heavily Subsidized, by Ford Marketing and Taxpayers – Yet FordGoBike is Very Unpopular on Yelp These Days – Why’s That?

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

There are a lot of reasons why People Hate Us On Yelp, lately. Feel free to see why, on Yelp.

Hey, which costs more, a heavy clunky slow FordGoBike or an electrified JUMP bike? At $1200 (plus an “admin fee”), a Ford GoBike costs more. How can this be?

IDK.

Anyway, maybe the Ford ppl will have better luck over the next 30 days. We’ll see.

In the meantime, the dockless and/or electrified and/or scooterly competition will continue to eat Ford’s lunch…

I was all set to boost this board, but look what stopped me:

It’s SCOOT’s World, We’re Just Living in It – The Solution to All the New SFMTA/UBER/Lyft-Created Traffic is a Quick Quiet Electric Scooter – (NOTE: Some Lane-Splitting Required)

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

The Future is coming at you on just two wheels:

This bit should make my point:

“Thanks to California’s tolerance of lane-splitting (thanks, California!), a scooter can sneak between cars and maneuver around the ubiquitous construction zones and double-parked delivery trucks, cabs and buses, which can reduce trip time dramatically.”

If you can lane-split through stalled traffic at 5 MPH to get to the front of the queue, well, that could get you to your destination two or three times faster than MUNI, UBER, Lyft etc, right?

Just saying…

I’ve never moved a Scoot to escape, myself.

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?)

These unicyclists were hauling ass on the Panhandle Bike Path / Multi Purpose Trail. Zoom zoom:

And further west on JFK, we have a Tesla Motors-beshirted skateboarder and an electric-powered trike:

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

Scootpocalypse Now: Get Used to This in Your Favorite Parking Spot – (And Don’t Try This in the Sunset)

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

Here’s the news:

Scoot cements permanent spot on SF streets – REPORTING FROM CITY HALL By Jerold Chinn SFBAY”

And here’s what’ll it look like:

This kind of thing wasn’t allowed afore, but it is now.

I don’t know how many Scoots make it way out there to the Outer Sunset, but if you take up the parking space in front of a house, you know, “my space” as the homeowner thinks of it, well that’s bad enough if you do it with a car, but with a for-profit rental scooter, well, Katy Bar The Door.

You’ll see.
