Now, the rest of the story... Last Friday night we had a block party and myself, along with a couple neighbors had a few drinks. Somewhere in the conversation motorcycles came up. Naturally, I fired the bike up and revved the motor a little bit. My daughter (knowing I was drinking) decided it would be best if she took the keys. The next day when I did decide to ride is when I realized I "lost" the key. In my 30 years of driving/riding I've never lost any keys so I never thought about a spare. This past week I did take the ignition out (surprisingly easy) but was reunited with my precious key before I made it to the locksmith.
