Half the bikes on the planet have scratched upper triple clamps. This is because most riders don't think about their keys vibrating around and scratching the triple clamps while they ride. By the time you realize what's going on, it's too late.

So I build my own keys. The R1 has its ignition key and I also have a key for the Givi monolock top case. So I cut the plastic parts off both keys, ground some of the chrome plating off the brass keys, then soldered them together to make one double-ended key. Here's a pic. It's not for everyone, but it works for me.
