A constant problem on Hilton Head Island, home of 12,000 rental beach crusiers, is theft of said crusiers. Then they are sold for $20 in outlaying small towns and commities to working poor with no cars. Quite sad. I lost 10 bikes last year. The Beaufort, Jasper, and Hampton Counties' Sheriff's Departments recovered about 200. Roughly 60-100 get stolen a week in peak season. Only if these overprivdledged, gated community dwelling, White Yankees would understand that tourist areas are TARGETS for CRIME. Just take the time and use the lock provided.
