Living in SF is way easier with a moped. In my old town, I'd ride everywhere as well. But that town was small and completely bikeable. Being as I was still learning, I had a few breakdowns, and had to push it home a mile or two. It was flat, no traffic or crazy people to attend with but it _was_ still 100 degrees outside.
I've yet to break down in the few months I've lived here. One day, it will happen, I'm sure. Depending on the circumstances, I'd be half motivated to just lock it up and come back with tools to fix it right there.
So I wanna know, what are your worst breakdown stories?
