Where'd you hide your plastic key?

It oughtta be on your bike, 'cause that is where you will need it when you have burned up your pants in the campfire, pocket contents included.

So where is the best place to tape it? Or not tape it.

I velcrod mine under a fairing.
Should I even be telling that?

Did u want my Credit Card# and csv code on back?

I also keep a spare key for mine and my wife's bike in my jacket pocket.

They are useless at home!

My EX-GIRLFRIEND lost my only key at Daytona bikeweek.
live and learn.

In a drawer...somewhere in the house..probably...

Never lost keys to need to find out..my everyday key, stays in my ignition..especially if I'm out camping....have never camped in an area that I thought someone would steal it..

I wear it on a dog tag chain. I've never needed it, and it doesn't bother me to wear it.

I put it in my hidden pocket in my jacket as I am never on my bike without. Might be good to put in the foam of your helmet also. So it is on me - which I like better than my bike for some strange reason.

Pretty sure it is hidden on the bike. Unfortunately I've slept too many times since I hid it. I suspect being stranded with stimulate my memory.

You just got me thinking.............It's been a while since I remember seeing that little plastic rascal.
I just spent the last hour looking for it and no success.
So I guess that I don't know where the hell I keep the darn thing, but normally I put it in my favorite backpack that goes on all my trips in a side case that I only lock at night, I try to never let my bike out of my sight when stopping somewhere on the road, except at night.

Your GS should have come with 2 metal keys, a plastic key and a key code tag (at least I think that's what it is) so you can have replacement keys made.

My plastic and spare metal keys are sitting in a drawer in my kitchen.

I'm so screwed if I lose my key!
