what could possibly go wrong ...

I watched a guy spreading his butt cheeks trying to lift his bike off the supermarket carpark bike bay.

Once he got it up  :180: I got out my car and walked over to him. only damage was his silly rocket box cover and pannier lid.

I commented on the damaged and he said he forgot to take his lock off even though he had his nice yellow cord on the throttle grip.

If theres a gap i can get through it !!!

Some people pay for an IAM... I am mad.....

always wrap it around the brake lever or you will forget and move the bike - even pushing it is can cause damage so stop yourself doing so
Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snake bite..... and furthermore always carry a small snake.   W.C.FIELDS

This is my little remember aid: when a lock is added I put the ignition key in a silicon tube so I can't insert it in the bike.
I can still forget to put the key in the tube when I mount the lock though  :164:
It's just a little aid extra.

No lock mounted keys are like:


When I mount a lock then the key goes in the tube:

Can't start that way.

MMM.  How long ....  Prace your bets,   now ...

It is on at the mo (just by way of fiddling around in the garage - not needed there).  The cord (rather short) is sitting on the throttle over the brake lever.  Then it occurred to me, I'm always on the left hand side when I drop it from the centre stand or roll it out from the side stand and I hold the left hand bar.

No need to prace your bets, a new one is coming up; how much damage ....
