Has anyone else out there slipped a pair of regular shorts and a t-shirt over their cycling gear to "check-out" a continental breakfast while on tour?

I'm not certain what you are asking.  Do you mean to go into a motel where you are not staying and sample the continental breakfast intended for the paying guests?

If so, the answer is no.

Not to sound too moralistic but most places it's considered theft and, if the hotel wanted to make an example of you, they could prosecute.  Want a police record over an English Muffin?  If nothing else it would certainly delay your trip.  

Tom and Huck didn't have to worry about the same things we do. They didn't keep computer records back then.

All that Dave B. said, plus I think it would be an absolutely crappy statement about our sport and the people in it. What about the riders that follow you?

Buy your breakfast. I mean what does a box of store brand instant oatmeal cost, anyhow?

Some people constantly cease to amaze me.

yep.  there's been occasions when I've asked, with them clearly knowing I hadn't spentt he night.. I don't think this would be acceptable if you were over 25, but for a youngun like me, it helps balance a budget (though I'd never depend on it.)

Now how about dumpster diving?  I imagine there's something wrong with that too? ;)
