That is a good point. I don't leave my car with the ignition key dangling because if I do it won't surprise be that some t*#*#r will borrow it...
I'm assuming this is a small Rib used as a tender, so manual start, no keys, no battery.
But should have a KC. If its one that can be over ridden I'd be changing it. Few nyaffs will carry a spare. Although some may be handy with some string..
I'd also want to lock something... Engine in up pos maybe?
