Bring it with you. Don't think too much about what everyone else thinks because if you leave it out there you won't have a good time at the restaurant always worrying about your stuff.

If your bike is going to be in plain view leave your gear on top of your bike, if not put your gloves inside your helmet and walk around with it in your hands. Don't worry about feeling doushy! How doushy would you feel to come back to no gear at all! Plus chicks dig guys that ride motorcycles. Didn't you ever see Hall Pass!

Carry your helmet with you. I have had several expensive ones stolen over the years, and nothing me off more. The helmet straps can be cut too easy...

I carry it all around with me as well. Even at school walking all over campus. I'll strap the helmet to my backpack if I'm walking far.

If I'm meeting people who drove, I put everything in their trunk.

I never ever ever put my stuff on the ground... that's just gross. The bugs that get on my gear from riding are bad enough.

I only wear my helmet into my local corner store after talking with the normal cashier about being cool with it. I used to assume that they would recognize my bike, but found out that wasn't the case. I received a similar "warning" as you did.

I've worn my helmet all the time in gas stations and have even been carded multiple times for beer without having to remove it.

For grocery runs or eating, I either bring in my helmet and gloves while wearing my jacket or I lock the helmet on my bike gloves in shield closed and wear the jacket.

I always found that to be discrminatory. If some people can walk into places with head coverings why can't we.

While on the subject, before I went into business for myself my employers all gave me for bringing my helmet in and wearing my jacket to client sites. I've been on my own for a couple months now and none of my clients have had a problem with it. I'm there to fix computers, if someone wants a Guy that LOOKS like an it Guy call a modeling agency.

I really hated adding a topbox to my Bandit; definitely knocked the cool factor down several notches.

OTOH, being able to drop my helmet, gloves, and pants into a 46 liter Givi top box and not sweat theft, or having to walk around w. all this, is berry berry nice.
