I made my comments entirely on the basis of my experience with the Tour Divide Race, which is 2700 miles. Quite often in the smaller towns there is no need for a lock, but if you are doing resupply in a grocery store and have to leave your bike 10 minutes, having it not there when you're done could really put you off your day. I carry the lock mostly for my peace of mind when in the store.
