Not something I often see discussed but personally I just have all my keys on one loop. Though I would like to change to a key organizer but since I since my disc lock key and top box have a big chuck of plastic on them I'm struggling to find anything. Anyone have any suggestions?

I keep all my keys individually. I don't want my Moto Guzzi key or Ducati key with me when on my KTM and vice-versa, I also don't want my car key when on the bikes. I keep my bike keys separate also as the other keys will damage the bike rattling around in the wind and vibrations. Each of my important keys have a different shape fob so I can pull the correct one out my pocket without needing to sift through looking for the right one. Also, if I lose a key, I don't lose all my keys so I can still get on my bike or in my house or in my car. I hate carrying crap around with me off the bike too so means when I go to the pub I just have a door key, again less to lose! :)

That's make sense. I only have one bike so I only have the one set. With my bike there is a big peice of plastic so it won't scratch anything. I did used to have the ignition key in a separate ring once. Was suggests losing it

For all of my vehicles, I'll run just the single key and ring when it's in the ignition, the extra weight in the ignition can mess it up. The bike key has a small fabric tag to make it harder to lose.

I have my home keys on one ring, and vehicle keys are all separate. I'd like to go keyless with my bike though, because motorcycle pants are so stiff, it is hard to put keys in the pocket, and later even harder to get them out.
But currently the suitable keyless system is just a bit too expensive.

wallet in my pocket until I get a tankbag, house keys etc in the same pocket, bike/car keys are seperate. I'm not very prone to misplacing or losing such things.

I like the idea because you can do more than just keys. USB sticks, RFID tags, flash light, a few other things.
Yh I'd drop a blade on thereand the TrackR So it beeps if I leave it behind. The USB I think would be more agro then its worth cause of the weight of it in a USB port but still cool

Yea boy, I would never keep all my keys together on one ring or one organizer. It'd be devastating to lose all your keys when you lose one.

I've forgotten my bike keys on the bike itself a few times, thankfully nothing happened in all instances and they were there on the bike when I came back. If worse things ever happened, I'd rather not have someone be taking off with the keys to my other bikes, my house, my office and my in-laws place with them.

Three sets of keys - bike, office and house (cars keys too, but I hardly carry them as my wife uses ours more than me). Like others have said I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket. I can also tell the difference between the 3 sets just by feel alone in my pocket.

I keep my spare bike key at home so I can’t lose them if they’re stored on my bike, or on me. My bike key set is the smallest - ignition, bike chain and top case. I do miss the motorcycle keychain logo form I used to have on it though.
