I live in an area where crime is low, at least scooter theft is rare. And probably because scooters are rare, no one wanders around for hours seeking scooters. lol I’ve been locking up my scooters for a year, no problem, with a U Lock. Was at a hospital for 6 hours, no problem, lately. I suppose the bike rack being in public, next to a rest area and the main entrance, nobody goes there.
