Decided to put my 30th GSA on eBay.

I rolled it out of the garage yesterday to take some pictures. Went in the house to get the keys and couldn't find them. Still haven't found them. I've never misplaced my GSA keys. What's that tell you?

This all happened after taking a K1600GT for the day up to Taos and back. I fell in love with it and put $500 down on the next one to be delivered. Supposed to be here next month. I figured I'd use my KTM690 as my adv bike, and the K1600 as my highway bike. I guess the GSA doesn't like that idea.

So, it looks like I'm going to sell some of my classic Japanese bikes that I'll never ride to get the K bike and keep the GSA.

PS...you might want to check the lock for the seat release?
Or...your cases...if you keep those keys on the same ring.

The point of my thread is that the bike doesn't want me to sell it. I've looked everywhere.

30th GSA? Do you buy a new one every time the tires get worn?
Is there a GSA subscription?

Keys are where you last put them!

Jacket pocket?

Really, I've looked everywhere.

Now I'm going to do a police call on my driveway. This is weird.

I left my keys in the Pannier lock, which happen to be sitting in storage!
