1. Sometimes people whip into parking spots and if your bikes in between 2 cars.....it's getting hit 10% of the time.

2. If your staying in there a while, it's harder to steal and in plain view

3. Do cops really care if you are on the sidewalk? Probably not on a good day

4. If you whistle at passing chicks they can hear you better
I parked on the side walk at katy mills and when i got out they gave me a ticket

Yeah, Katy Mills Mall is pathetic. When we did the Operation Candy Cane visit in '07, they kicked us off the property. They literally had the bicycle guards, and 2 guards in their cages, follow us to make sure we went straight to the nearest exit. Absolute BS, but I gotta admit it was kinda funny to see the 2 guys on their bicycles following us in the distance, with their eagle eyes TRAINED on us! Imagine that... Santa Claus being treated like a criminal for delivering candy canes and good cheer! /LOL

I would never take the bike to the mall. How are you going to carry anything back? Have the GF drive you if you dont have another vehicle. And lowjack is a must. and if you dont have you always say you have it.

Tankbag.

It's not like I would go to the mall to shop around all the stores. I usually know what I want to get, and what store I want to buy it from. If it's small enough to fit in my tankbag, then I'll take the bike. This way I can park quickly, and closer to the store I want to go to, get in... buy it... then get the outa there. I hate being in a store longer than I need to be, and a mall is even worse.

+1 if i park in a normal spot, i make sure the bike is lined up with the back of the cars so cars can see it while they whip around
