Okay we don't need to hear how stupid this is but remembering to pull that darn key out of the storage compartment lock or the ignition is an issue.

Any suggestions?

I have a pocket on the end of each sleeve with a zipper.

The left side is for the ignition/storage keys and the right side is for the Givi keys

Since I always put the same keys in the same spot, I simply feel my sleeves for the keys before I leave the Silverwing.

Another thing to try is to put your house key on the same ring. Unless you take the scoot key out, you will not get in the house.

I have left the key in the scoot so many times I can't count. But the area I live in is not in any way a high crime area. I do try to take it out when I leave the Rison area. Getting more in the habit now.

Does that mean if you were not there the crime would be lower Razz

Bill, I have never thought of it that way. But you may be right. I have so much stuff that the bad guys might want to steal. My not being here might reduce the temptation. Oh my goodness, now I have alerted the bad guys about my stuff. I may have to start locking my door now.

I keep my house key on my bike key's ring so I can't really get in the house if I leave my keys in the bike. I'm not necessarily A/R, but I also have a habit of always putting my keys in the same place when I come inside. It is very handy. Probably comes from the fact that if I take my glasses off and can't remember where I put them I can't see well enough to find them...

In some of the New GIVI trunks they have a wireless remote trunk release (goes on your keychain). In theory you could buy that system separately from the trunk and use it for your seat.
As for remembering to take it out of the ignition,
You could always adapt this product.

UPDATE: For the fun of it, I emailed tech support for the advanced keys website linked to above, which makes aftermarket key fob systems for vehicles. Here is the conversation:

My Questions to them: Can the proximity based keyless start be used on a motorcycle, so I never have to put the key in the ignition?
Do you have anything that will replace a standard key lock for storage, that will only open in proximity to the key fob?
Thanks,

Their Answer:
Absolutely! Many of our customer installed this system into their motorcycle for the same reason. Our stand-alone Smart Key system would be good fit for this purpose. As for lock storage, our system supply an output/signal when the key is in the proximity range, you just need a relay and electro-actuated locks to enable the storage to be opened (only when the key is in the range) This function is identical to the trunk release switch on the car.
Hope this helps and let us know if you have any questions.

So, there you go Joyce & Donal. The perfect solution to resolving your problem.

No Problem. I love coming up with unique and creative solutions.
If you decide to go that route let us know, and if possible even
take pictures of the install, so others can duplicate what you do.

Thanks,

Dan

To quote some-one earlier.

I guess I am a tad 'anal' with regards my keys.

Always travel with both keys. One in my left jacket pocket the other, 'in use' set is used for starting and storage area. I have a set routine;

Whilst parking up, with keys in ignition I set the HISS, then if needed unlock the under seat storage area, once unloaded, keys out - helmet off. Keys then placed in right hand jacket pocket.

It's strange but if I divert from this it feels - 'wrong' and so I don't walk away from bike until I feel - 'right.' Like I said - 'anal', but it works for me. Guess I'm a creature of habit. Rolling Eyes

Habits can be good. Aircraft pilots go through checklists before lighting the fires and taking off... doing it the same way EVERY time. That way, something out of order is very apparent.

Whether most of us admit it or not, we all have our routines and if we don't follow them, feel out of sorts. I am one of them. small moped

Gary, that is where I developed my habits!!!!

A friend commented one day whilst car sharing, that each time I connected my safety belt, I leaned forward. Not something I was aware I did. It comes from checking the 'inertia real' whilst strapping into the seat in the helicopter I flew in. (I still return all switches in the car to their null position after switching the engine off.) Old habits die hard!!!!!!

As you say, routines can be good. (Boring - but good.) clown

LOL dspevak :-) So - I habitually leave the keys in the ignition when I get home because I park mine in my garage. I have the same problem and have left my keys on the bike once since I got it. I usually have a habit of pocket-checks before I go in or out of a building so that helps. In the event I lock my keys in the trunk, I carry a spare in my wallet. On rare occasion I lock the keys in there intentionally. :-)
