Shopping with Dahon

Yesterday afternoon, when I was biking home from work, I stopped at a supermarket to buy some food. That place has a sign "no bicycles allowed". I folded down the handlebars, folded the bike in half while leaving the seat up with the backpack attached and wheeled the bike into the store. When a store clerk spotted me he started saying they don't allow bikes into the store, but when he had a better look at the folded bike he even didn't finish the sentence and left me alone. This ability to wheel the folded bike along (even while still having stuff attached to the racks) is a huge plus for Dahon (perhaps even Tern?).
