They look like mobility scooters for the disabled. I used to work in the service industry and had a middle age couple roll in on something like this. I made some obvious efforts to accommodate what I perceived as a disability until they made it clear to me that they were using this for the convenience and that they were entirely capable of physical activity (both were beyond overweight). They added that they had a ramp to literally drive them into the back of the RV in a brag. I still helped them to my best but lightened up on helping with their physical needs but took heed to the obvious cognitive dissonance. Now I guess they can just bring the RV and rent a scooter. They will need a hat but that was probably a good idea anyway.

There goes our ranking for best places to" get away" for being such a laid back community. If the segway people have to mess up their hair then so should these goofs. I wonder if their insurance company was aware of this safety practice?

What was there before were small local business owners, tradesmen, marine, work space, and services, artists and industrial that served the community in a different way. I wouldn't call that embarrassing. The entertainment just shifted down and became more tourist oriented. Change happens and some win and some loose.
I am surprised the city lets them operate out of a dirt parking lot

Glad to see helmets required! These trikes whip around town, through commuter traffic, low to ground driven by clueless tourists and are an accident waiting to happen. They should also be required to sport those flags to help visibility.

I'm sorry, if you can't see these guys that are as wide as two scooters welded together then an orange pennant isn't going to assist you. Please watch out for motorcyclists, scooterists and cyclists.

The area known as the Funk Zone is a success because it brings more money to the economy, offers visitors and the community a place to go to enjoy food, wine, beer and music. What was there before was an embarrassment.
