question about keys

another question from this

How do you carry your bike key?

When I owned my last bike had 3 keys - house, car, bike. No problem. Now I have multiple keys for work, 2 big car keys, house, and remote for car locks. Too many to dangle on the bike ignition switch. Right now, I take my bike key off and use it by itself and put it back on when I get where I am going. This is a bit of a pain and I am a little afraid I will forget it one day when I stop somewhere.

Do you just carry fewer keys, use one of those separating key rings or?

Motorcycles Unlimited keytag FTW.

I keep it in my pocket when not on the bike, and in the bike when riding......

oh and my other keys are on their own keychain in my pocket or tank bag. My bike actually takes 2 different keys because of different years igniton/trunk/tank.

I have a D ring also for work, car, home and bike keys; I keep them locked up when I go out and on the bike just use the single bike key w a keychain made from Tim's helmet visor lock donated by TexLurch.

Good reminder we are mortal.

How big are your Fcking pockets??

It WOULD be nice to have a spare bike, just in case! I can't seem to fit one in my tank bag. (Not for lack of trying!)


I carry my key separate, but I have forgotten it and left it in the ignition a few times!

just a reminder from your friendly locksmith, dont keep anything on your car or bike keys, besides a fob. Unless you wanna pay me to drill out and replace your ignition later.
