Key causes off

  1. Just a headsup...

    There are some keystraps on the market with a ring on one end joined to a carabiner on the other with a short piece of webbing.

    Thinking this was a good way to keep my topbox key from scratching the yoke I kept it at one end, ignition key at the other, and dropped the strap to the front of the ignition assembly while riding.

    This morning the key jammed prob between the fairing mount and the ignition assembly, stopping me from getting the lock I needed for a slow turn and pitching me off. :shock:

    Luckily the traffic was standing still. Minor scratching - the Oggy knob took most of the blow. Didn't do my back wonders though picking the bike up.
