Well, they aren't walking, I would venture. They swim their way in with sweet, sweet (glycosylated) flagella. But since they are related to Type IV pili instead of TTSSs, perhaps we could say that they "twitch" their way into a bar?

I could work in an "ether" joke about their membranes, but that would be pretty extreme of me.
