    I use on of those coily, springy, cord dealies (highly technical term) in bright orange. I slip it around my wrist at rest stops so I never have to start patting pockets with increasing anxiety.

    I just got this for $15... works great and I have a quick connect/disconnect fob holder on my belt so I just clip it on to that when I'm done riding...

    Key fob? What's that...?

    I got in the habit many, many moons ago of not having anything attached to my moto keys. When I leave the bike, the key always goes in my right front pocket.

    So far (knock on wood!) I've never lost a key, nor accidently left it in the ignition.

    Not sure why I got in this habit, but perhaps I just got tired of stuff waving/bouncing around all the time.



    Cheers!

    LOL...

    I have one of those attached to my disc lock key! Got it after I'd "customized" the CF front fender on my S.

    Try to find something that won't scratch.
    I agree. Find something leather, I got this from Vanson years ago.

    At Paonia last weekend, I just happened to look down as I was walking back from registering, and there on the ground was the key to my RT! I have a distinctive fob...I didn't even know it was gone from my pocket!

    I think I will get a lanyard so I can slip the key around my neck when I park the thing....

    One of those little plastic LED squeeze lights, comes in handy and doesn't scratch.
    Good judgment comes from experience, but experience often comes from bad judgment.
