The Little Things is a series of posts about tiny and/or cheap travel items that I've learned to carry because they make my life so much easier.
It may seem silly to add anything else to my key ring, as I have a vested interest in saving every cubic centimeter of space. But if you've ever tried to pull a key out of your pocket while wearing a glove, as I do multiple times a day, you'll understand the value of anything that makes the keys easier to find.
My friend Charlie gave me this ribbon keychain. I had to get used to the way it flaps frenetically when I ride (in darkness, it makes my instrument panel appear to flicker), but it's so worth it when I don't lose my key on a regular basis, and can still retrieve it from my pocket even after my gloves are on.
