Ugh, well, today sucked! I took my bike for a spin today, and decided to eat at the local Carl's Jr, about 8 miles away. Anyhow, my bike was very clean, and dry, so i decided to take the bike into the store while i ate, there was only about 5 other people in the place, as it was close to 9:00pm.
So, i pushed my bike into a back corner, where nobody was, and then went to wait inline to order, when i was inline, the manager came out and told me i couldnt have my bike in the store. I told him that it was clean, and dry, and that i dont dare leave it outside not locked up, they didnt have bike locks anyhow.
He decided to take it upon himself to put my bike outside, as soon as i saw him pushing my bike to the door and went and took it away from him, i told the guy i would be only a few minutes then on my way. But he wouldnt hear it, he insisted the bike stay outside.
Well, i decided to go accross the street and eat at Taco Bell (UGH!)...
So my question is, do you take your bike into fast food places? When i go on small (under 20 miles) rides in the city, i dont take my lock, as it weighs ~6lbs. Personaly, i dont want to risk loosing my $1K+ bike when eating $4 of food.
