I totally agree. Cruise Control, TC, ABS etc etc. All excellent technology and useful. However imho keyless is unnecessary tech that can fail.
Too true, with a normal key like I have on my 2017 XCA I can not ride away without the fob, leave my gas cap open without starting the bike and no electronic demons to appear. Keep it simple.

several thousand miles later, i am very happy with my non locking gas cap. remove tank bag, unscrew gas cap, fill, replace former items and ride off.  :046:

Just picture up my XRT a month ago. Dealer said to me to switch the key off when not using us. This was for two reasons, first to save the battery life and second to stop the new breed of thieves from being able to pick up the signal of the transponder when you have stopped.

Both reasons make sense to me and as the transponder is easy to switch off Ill keep on doing that for now.
