Garage
I put a piece of that around my handle bars to keep my keys from scratching it up. I carry very few just the bag keys with ignition but it has held up well.

I wish more owners would do this, or use their single ignition key along with a soft key ring.

Many years ago I bought a sportbike which was a garage queen, mint condition except for an ugly scratched upper clamp.

I thought he was a property manager, he had about twenty keys on his ring when he started the bike for me. Truly cringe-worthy.
