Key, cause if I use the switch, to much of a chance of forgetting the key. Then I end up with a dead bat or a stolen bike. Can you imagine the feeling of coming out to the parking lot, looking for your key, realizing you left it in the bike, and then find the bike is gone?

MSF taught me switch, and I'm kinda in the habbit now. Manual doesn't say not to, but it does say to use the key as long as its not moving. Doubt I'll change it though, I've never had any problems this way.

Key only. I figure the switch is just something else to replace if I wear it out. Have to turn the key off anyway.

Key, unless I am stopped on a hill and holding the brake, and want to leave the bike in gear.

Then I just run out of hands and use the kill switch.
