    What do you use for a key fob?

    I've had my RT for over a year now and my key is naked. I just haven't come up with the right fob idea. The closest I have come is to get one of these. I ride to work in the early morning hours and this could be handy. http://keychainpockets.blogspot.com/...-pendants.html

    So what do you use?

    A freebie from the dealer on one bike and the door opener from the bike shed on the other.

    A small leather pouch with the BMW roundel that belonged to my dad. He probably got it from the dealer with his /5 or /6. The opening is spring loaded to hold the keys inside when in your pocket. The keys are on a a ring which is attached to the pouch. I keep the non-ignition keys in the pouch with only the business end of the ignition key sticking out when on the bike. It looks like this:

    Key Fob

    The cheap rubber dealer fob, but I wrote my cell phone number on the back in case I lose the key.

    I have the updated version of what Marc uses. The little nylon BMW pouch. Works great for keeping track of my ear plugs when off the bike.

    Free ,SOFT! plastic advertising fob with a green gator head that doesn't rub off the paint,small enough to fit pocket, large enough to not get lost. FWIW, we UK fans don't like gators too well so I keep looking for another version. My problem is finding the extra key I hid on my bike! Boy, did I ever do a good job! I've had the blinkers apart,you name it & cannot find it!

    The metal fob will scratch up the area around your ignition switch.
    Try to find something that won't scratch.

    For my ignition key i use an old leather key fob emblazoned with the words and logo from a British magazine I used to subscribe to.

    My spare keys are kept in an old BMW leather zip pouch, grey and red color with a small BMW metal roundel in one corner.

    My key is naked by choice. It's easy to pocket and no fob to scratch or polish the area below the key hole.

    A Niteize S-biner

    I use a Niteize S-biner from EMS (pack of three for around $10 at EMS) when not riding you can clip your key to your belt ....or anything nearby.
