Dropped keys in bike - Romania
I'm in Bran, Romania and I have stupidly dropped by bike key into the wiring by the front fork of my 2014 V-Strom 650. The key has a hi-vis plastic loop and a smaller flat metal key for my topbox attached. When I dropped it I could still see the plastic loop and I grabbed it but it slipped through my fingers and disappeared - can't see it at all.
My three mates and I have looked, fiddled, poked, removed the outer body panel, "dropped" the bike all the way down, both sides; we can't see any keys, feel any keys or hear any keys; it's as though they have simply vanished through a wormhole.
My wife is sending spare keys from home in the UK but in the meantime - any ideas/suggestions? Dismantling the bike is an obvious one but I can't access my toolkit without removing the seat, with the key, and buying more in Bran, on Sunday, in 35 degree heat is also unlikely.
