Picture this. My brand new CBR 250 is parked in front of my favorite Mexcian restaurant, and everyone is sitting on the patio. I go to start my bike, and I accidentally drop the key. It does not fall through the cowling, and it is stuck somewhere. Now, I'm reachfing down to find where it may have hung up. Ouch---everything is still hot from my ride. The bottom line----on the bottom left side of the cowling, there is an area where two of the fiberglass panels form a pocket----wouldn't you know it---and it was a bitch to get my key out of there. My audience from the restaurant must have thought this guy is nuts. Now, my key ring has small, soft, Tecate beer punching bag hanging from it. I'm new to this group. I love my bike. I'm having a ball. Many safe miles ahead. Whipsaw.
