So I went to pick my bike up after getting my fork seals replaced (2 weeks later) and go riding with some people and decided to leave my car keys under the rear seat, DO NOT DO THIS. There are gaps and keys will disappear.

ummm...yeah. why didn't you just put them in your jacket? they are a bit safer there.

I learned this some time ago while riding my R1. I lost a new pair of Oakleys. The funny thing is, that same day I found a pir of cheap "Chilly's" glasses that I can not seem to get rid of. I think I can throw them out of the rear of an airplane, and they will eventually reappear in my house :toothy12:

Same thing happened to me on Sunday; I got back from a nice long ride, popped the cowl to grab my keys, and was like WTF!!! Where the hell are my house keys!?!?!?
Sure enough they had slid down inside the tail and were wedged between the subframe and the fairing, lucky I was able to yank them out.
Search around in the tail, they might still be back there.

Keys are not safer in the jacket. True though, the keys are more likely to not get lost if in the jacket instead of under the seat. Keys in the jacket can become a sharp instrument that stabs your chest or gut during an accident. The simplest things we carry on our person can harm us. I carry it all in a tank bag.

I left my bike at my parents for 2 weeks while I was finishing school, and I went to remove the seat cowl and saw 4 mice looking at me!! The mother climbed up there and had 3 babies (in 2 weeks) and they ate my registration and insurance card as well. I couldn't believe it!!
