I must admit that while packing things under the pillion seat in the past, I have thought that locking the key in there would be a problem. But I never thought it would actually happen. Guess What I was up at Mt Glorious for a spin today and pulled over to take a pic of some cloudy stuff as it was raining on and off. I unpacked my stuff and took a few shots. It started to rain again and so I quickly started to put it all back, and it happened. In one smooth motion I put my helmet bag in and snapped the seat down. Problem was my key was on my helmet bag and hey presto, I'm f#$%^d. Strangely enough I had left my house keys with pocket knife attached out. This gave me hope and the next half hour was spent trying to whitle sticks into lock pickers. This of course didn't work and I was back to square one. After a few more dead ends I discovered the plastic coverings could be bent enough to get a finger in. Some pain and missing skin later I had the key. Tip here is beyond obvious, but it can happen. Also thanks to the other riders that slowed down to see if I was ok.
