Have you ever done this?

Have you ever left you key in your bike for an extended period of time? I had a moron moment today and left my key in while I was in class from 9:30am to 12:45pm. This is the second time I've done it, the first with my sv my friends moved it while I was at work behind a truck.

Nope, I haven't done that. I did, however, see a sliver CBR at the RT 59 train station with it's key in the trunk. I took the key out and gave it to the station attendant. Then I left a note on the guy's bike telling him where it was. I signed it "Fellow Rider."

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Damn man, and that is an 06 . I've done this before, but after my theft incident I always double check the bike to make sure the key isn't left in the trunk and ignition.

Did you also leave a pic of you with your infamous green speedo? As for the key, never have i left it on the bike. First thing i do is pull it out as soon as i shut it off. Plus, it's my ONLY bike key so i be fucked if i left it. And even if i did, my bike never leaves the armor plated, heat/motion sensor armed, landmine infested backyard unless i'm riding it. And even when i do ride it it never leaves my sight. Thieves, you have been warned. You are lucky no one took off with it.

My bad is when I take the seat off and leave the key in there. My TL had the seat release underneath and I forgot it several times.

Been there, done that. Even did it today. I would be screwed if I lost it but unless you've seen me start my bike it would take awhile for someone to figure it out. Plus no one in there right mind would wanna steal my POS... But damn your lucky dude!

Even heroes know when to be scared.

I sometimes forget it in the trunk lock after I get off and get my phone/wallet out of the trunk. I walk away but always remember. Luckily i haven't left it in for an extended period of time.

I have left it in the trunk lock for an extended period a couple of times. Luckly the helmet does a good job hiding it. Now I always double check before I walk away.

We don't take the keys out of the bikes in the garage so being in FL I did it more than once. I've seen a few bikes and had mine moved twice I think from my friends being silly and trying to teach me a lesson.

Is this bad? Do the keys get stuck if you leave them in too long?

And as for not being able to find my keys, I keep a spare in my wallet so even if I did lose my key I have the spare.

Once... in 1988 in Key West, I left the key in my FXRS.

Just once.

Unlike someone else, who forgot about his fork lock and did a perfect imitation of Arte Johnson on his tricycle the very next day!

did it once this year at school was sitting front row, and was mentally making sure i had my keys because i had done it once a year or so ago so i always double check. Realized i didn't grabbed my pocket..nothing got up walked out of class and grabbed my keys, came back and sat down about 10 minutes later. Part of me wanted to yell "I FORGOT MY DAMN KEYS, OK?" because it probably looked like i had a case of the shits to most people.
