    Nice thread!

    I use a cheap leather thing attached to a 1 1/2" split O-ring. The leather used to have a BMW roundel glued on it that fell off on some highway a few years ago. I got it in 2004 when I bought a used 2003 R1150R, and the owner said keep the ring. On the O-ring I have two other keys. One is for my Micatech Pilot cases, and the other is for a Master lock for when I lock my bike with a cable.

    I've never thought of replacing it. Its either in my left front pocket, my bathroom counter at home, or a bed stand in a hotel room when I'm on the road.

    BTW, my spare key is on a plain split O-ring along with the spare for the panniers and the Master lock.

    I have a "VSTP" fob (private motorcycle club) and one of those atheist symbol fobs.

    I don't want extra junk in my pocket or flapping around the switch. I just put a ty-wrap through it to make it easier to grab. Color-matched, of course.

    I don't.

    I hate things rattling or flopping around, both on my motorcycles and in my cars.

    I too use one of those. It serves as my last ditch reminder to remove the disc lock before moving.

    (.....last ditch reminder after the large "Remove Before Flight" banner attached to the disc lock and the bright orange coiled reminder streched between the handle bar and the disc lock.... if after all that I still accidently disable my motorcycle by trying to ride off with the disc lock on, I was probably not in any shape to have been riding the motorcycle in the first place.... )

    I don't know, but if you are an atheist, does god still exist?
    Integrity is what you do when no one is looking.

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    Presumably, he/she/it does/doesn't exist regardless of what we think...I think.
