My "DOH" moment yesterday - Only cost me $40ish however
« on: June 20, 2018, 01:10:50 PM »
On my way out yesterday for a ride and don't see my keys.  I know I had them the day before because I also rode.  Checked the usual places.....nope can't find them.  Even checked the garage in case I left them in the bike but would have used them to unlock the house door.  Oh well find second, yet unused, key and head to dealer to order a replacement.  Find old thread here about $35+ cost I brace myself.......OK, not too bad at $40.80, with tax got out of there for just under $44.  Of course, I'll need to take it to locksmith to cut and then return for them to "program" key to bike, etc.  Return home and determined to find original key as I KNOW I had it.  Tear place apart and remember I did lie down on the bed to read some mail the prior day.  Yep, found the key-ring lost in the bedding as they must have fallen out of my pocket.  How I never rolled over on them during the night is beyond me as I tend to toss and turn all night. 

I guess as far as a life lesson this one may be one of the least expensive.  I decided not to try and cancel the order and just have a blank available for the future.

Now that Tiger on the sales floor looked nice............

Could have been worse - Thanks for sharing  :028:

The original keys should also have been provided with a small metal tag
that has a number stamped into it - hat number can be used by Triumph
to produce a new key, which just needs the Immobiliser "Chip" programming to the bike  :028:

Smiles are infectious,and they are FREE,
so if you see someone without one, give them one of yours :-)

So I understand, if I would have taken the tag number (I actually found that) to my dealer, then Triumph USA would have sent the replacement key already cut??  Leaving only the dealer to do their thing with it and the bike?
