I will frequently ride my bike to the lbs and walk around with it while I shop. I haven't tried doing this at supermarkets or other stores. I'm absolutely afraid to lock up to something outside the store. Has anybody tried shopping at Safeway/Kroger/Albertsons with your bike?
I did see a guy with his 5200 at the Apple store at the mall and he seemed to be left alone.
I can see it being an issue if it's been raining or if you actually ride in the store.
Does it work out or have you gotten busted? I can't imagine the risk is any worse than driving a cart around the store, especially the type with the plastic car for the kids attached to it.
