I'm not sure I would tempt potential key thieves with a long length of paracord to grab hold of - I'm also not sure I would anchor one end of it on the front brake cable! If I still lived in London, I might have considered some form of cover to put over the key to keep it from being easily turned or removed?

Sadly, all you have to do on a Tiger 900 is order up an SW Motech Pro tank bag that attaches to the gas filler ring.  They moved the gas fill so far forward on the 900 I must remove the tank bag every time I want to remove or insert the key in the ignition...and that's with the smallest Pro Mini tank bag set as far back as possible.  Thought it was a flaw, but now I see a benefit.  My key will never fall out, or some wise guy will never be able to pull it out (although never heard of this happening), as it's a bit of a process to remove the tank bag first.  Such is progress I guess.... :138:
