OK, not truly V-Strom related, but handy as hell anyway.

Small padlocks are just plain handy around a bike. Lock the tank bag, lock the tail bag, lock a cable through your helmet and bike frame, etc. How about a set of four that are keyed alike for around $10?

Master Padlocks has a set of four that are keyed the same, black anodized (or painted or something) brass, and they MSRP is $10.01. Here's A Link that shows them. They come with 4 locks and 4 keys, and are the small size (about 3/4" wide on the bottom of the lock). I actually got mine a little cheaper, they were $8-something, at Lowes. I've also seen them at Walmart.

My only complaint is that the slot in the keys is too narrow to pivot around a key ring so mine wree always binding. I took a Dremel to the slot though and now they pivot just fine :twisted:

I use that same set for my gun cases and ammo cans whenever I go to the range/desert (otherwise they're in the safe).

Here's an additional tidbit for you.

Some hardware stores and locksmiths can key simular locks to all work off the same key. Especialy master locks.
