Sorry for a mostly non-bike related thread, but I'm hoping to get some advice from the Bay Area folks here. It looks like there is a 95% chance that I'll be in the city within the month for 3+ months (possibly permanently, based on how things go). Any advice on good areas for apartment renting? Thus far, I've heard good things about nob hill and mission. I'll be working in the financial district. Advice on short-term rentals... er, possibly with a dog? I'd probably just keep a bike (or two) out there, not sure what monthly parking type stuff looks like (aside from expensive compared to Milwaukee ). Also any advice on must-see stuff nearby via motorcycle, I'm all ears. I'm hoping to have both my honda interceptor and dr200 out there.
