900 GT Pro - luggage complaint
« on: August 28, 2021, 03:51:39 AM »
Again, I love this bike.  It handles better than any motorcycle i have ever had.  I think it is truly great.

I did purchase the Triumph plastic bags (not the aluminum ones).  Im happy with them except for one thing: I cant leave them unlocked.  In order to take the key out of the lock, I have to lock the bag.  This is annoying if say, the engine is running and I want to put something in the bag or take something out of the bag.  I have to turn the motor off and unlock the bag with the ignition key.

Yes, I could carry both keys with me.  But I cant be trusted with two keys - I would leave one in the lock or just plain lose it.

Your thoughts?

Fog lights  should only ever be used on low beam. If you use high beam in foggy conditions all you will do is blind yourself.

Get a third key cut and keep it in a pocket in your riding jacket secured with a small bit of rope or chain.

I'm the opposite and don't trust myself when I go out visiting to not to loose the ignition key and be left stranded- I therefore always take the spare key out with me usually in a separate pocket in my motorcycle pocket.

When I'm out with my wife, we always have the spare key from the other motorcycle in our pocket to be on the safe side.

that's standard Givi, the maker of the boxes, with any Givi box I know you can only take off the key once you lock it. Separate key is what you need to do

Just get a dumb key or 2 cut. Easy.
