Look like very nice bikes. 

My only concern is that if you leave them outside with a cable running through the handles would it be possible for someone to cut the handles or bags and get to the bikes.  I would somehow want to actually secure the bikes with a cable to prevent them from being taken.  I know cables can also be cut but I would think the bags would be easy to cut and then remove the bags leaving you with the cable and bag handles.  Just a thought.

They look really NICE!

good point,   I would probably not leave the bikes in the bags at the campsite. however once I set them up, plan on leaving them if we go somewhere and would then cable lock them.  Same if we rode somewhere and did some shopping or looking around.. I realize and have even seen signs posted about park thieves..

Your post on bike storage under the dinette came at a very timely point for me as I was in the midst of trying to decide the best way to carry a bike on or in my PC2350.  I had looked at folding bikes, but wasn't anywhere to be able to test one first hand.  Finally I decided to order a Verso 20" folding bike from Walmart with free site-to-store shipping.  Knowing Walmart's easy return policy and their extended warranty (even covers "normal wear and tear" at $28 for three years) convinced me to give it a try.  This particular bike comes in white or blue and while the manufacturer lists them at $469 retail, Walmart's price is only $249!  That low price actually scared me a bit as I know folding bikes need to be made well to endure the stress put on their hinges.  It rained here the first three days after I picked up my bike, but once I got to test ride it and fine tune the seat and handle bar adjustments I fell in love with this bike. 

I've not found a cover for the bike just yet so I'm using a sheet blanket to protect it and the RV interior when stored under the dinette, but the fit is great and traveling by myself means my space on the opposite side of the dinette is unrestricted.  Two people could easily sit side-by-side and not be cramped by the bike.  Thanks greatly for your post, Sparky!
