Ok, so I have 9 things on my keys, which frankly gets in the way when I plug it into the alp. How do you guys sort out the problem of silly amounts of keys?

Having a motorcycle keyring isn't an option cos I'd lose it!

my are split - ignition key on its own, and the rest (locks, panniers, topbox etc) on a seperate keyring in my pocket.

easier to start the bike, and means i can go in my top box without stopping the engine.

Same here, and the ignition is on a lanyard so I can put it around my neck if I don't want to take my gloves off and fiddle with my pockets

That Choop looks like an idea, but at the moment I'd similar to Jarl, not counted them all but must be sailing close to having to take my boots off! (I.E. more than my fingers and brain can cope with:rolleyes:)
Will investigate my collection over Easter:toothy2:

i split mine into three
house, car and bike and connect them with this


yes if you want to pose you can wear it on your belt loops.

generally i only carry the required keys eg if i'm on the bike and the wifes out house and bike, if out in the car (wifey at home) car only . excess keys kept on a key rack at home.
works well untill you get home soaking wet thinking someone is at home and you find out they've all p***ed off out leaving you freezing on the door step.:(:(:(:(

i have a metal disc keyring that each key goes into on its own little metal toggle, so each can be removed by pulling back on a sprung catch.
works very well, ive never lost a key off it in my pocket and it means the ignition key is used without the noise or top yoke damage caused by a whole bunch.
got it from halfords but ive seen them loads of places, its lasted me 10yrs now at least

Keeping the wemoto tag thing with the bike key because I check for the tag to make sure I've got my keys (so hopefully I won't leave the bike key in the bike!). Fingers crossed should work, cheers all :)

I use one of those looped keyrings aswell. They are easy to use with gloved hands and if you drop the key inside the fairing it makes it easier to find and less likely to disappear under the tank. DAMHIK
