The Illegal-Appearing Motorized Scooters of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Bike Path

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

What powers this ride? The gasoline? Maybe, but this safety-oriented piloti doesn’t look the rebel rebel type.

OTOH, where’s the battery if this rig is all-electric? I know not.

Compare all this with a legal all-electric bike rider ebikefan, whose mellow gets harshed by a mean-spirited hippie:

Encounter with ignorant E-Bike hater in San Francisco [HD] ebikefan

Success continues to elude the A2B electric bike people. I’ll tell you, most of the people in town you see on these e-bikes are somehow affiliated with the company itself, believe it or not. Something like $5000 is too too much for what these bikes are, but the other problem is that I wouldn’t want one if they gave me one for free.* I suppose if you’d paid me to ride one about and take charge of its safekeeping and lug it up and down stairs, well then I’d think about it. And if I accepted your deal, I’d be just like most of the other A2Ber’s in town, like, apparently, ebikefan, getting paid to operate an A2B…

*So don’t give me this oh, well, if you can’t afford a premium bike stuff. An A2B might be fun for Jay Leno to collect and have to gather dust in one of his garages (I’m seriously, I think he has one), but there’s a reason why they’re not popular…

Stand-Up Paddle Boarder Tends His Crab Pots Outside of the Golden Gate

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

Here are the rules to the game:

Dude was about a quarter mile away from the beaches of northwest Frisco.

IMO, this fellow (who was, granted, west of the Golden Gate) was in San Francisco Bay. But the rules for dungeness crab trapping seem to indicate that he was _outside_ of SF Bay. Ergo, this hobby is A-OK.

News to me…

Wow, 8th Grader from Marin County Teaches KTVU About the Dangers of Live TV – A New Meme – Double NSFW

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

Wow, this post from Amy Graff of the Mommy Files is pretty edgy for, huh?

A well-chosen headline:

“Local boy video bombs news reporter at Giants parade with offensive phrase”

And a nice quote:

”Now, my 8th grade son and the rest of his friends are praising him as a hero: ‘He’s got millions of likes/views! He is famous on the Internet!’”

Remember, this is NSFWX2. Keep a look out for the squirrely kid on the right. (The advantage this video has is that it’s title doesn’t have bad words in it.)

Does KTVU use a five-second delay or something, on their live broadcasts?

Small wheels and it costs $3500.

Maybe this is for runners with bad knees.

As seen in Golden Gate Park:

OTOH, my daily driver cost ten times less and it has big wheels.

But, if it makes you happy…

A Grown Man on His Stand Up Tricycle in San Francisco

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Now you might think this fellow zooming down Golden Gate Avenue (not too far from where Patty Hearst spent a few terrifying months) is standing on a California Chariot, but you’d be wrong because this backwards tricycle appears to have pedals and a drivetrain.


Complete with his “Wild Kid” T-shirt, this man has got it going on, leaning this way and that down Ignatius Heights.

For those about to trike, we salute you.
