Talking The key chain

Hello folks! Since the bike in now stored for the winter I thought spending a bit of my spare time making silly threads... However.

What is your key chain(s) and does it have a meaning or history? Me for instance, I'm a big aviation fan. My side job is actually related to aviation so of course I had to have one of these aircraft parking ribon.

no key chain. I'm a big fan of keyless in newer vehicles. I hate crap in my pockets and remember loaded key ring marking my first bike's tank from the constant buzz.

I just have a rubber ducati key chain celebrating moto gp something? Kinda been looking for one that I like. I always like to have one keychain on by bike key, I'm forever putting my gloves on with my keys still in my pocket.

Mine is a single key on a small keyring which clips onto the rest of the keys when not in "fun mode"

I got the "remove before flight", previous history in the UK RAF working on F4's

Seeing a top triple clamp all scratched up from 'stuff' hanging off the key is one of my pet peeves. I just put a short length of brightly colored cord (red in this case!) on there with a couple of knots, helps me pull it out of my pocket.

Personally, I'd be distracted by that long ribbon flapping around in the breeze.

Agree. It does help when I'm trying to either find the key or just checking if it's they're still in my jacket.

But it does not flap in the wind though. The windscreen and dashboard assembly prevent it.
