January 18th

Russ got me a key doohickey for Xmas, and I ordered the blanks to use with the van and the DRZ.  They claimed ignorance about the bike, and asked me to send them the keys so they could look at them.  Uh... they have a fscking Suzuki in the image on their web page!  I pointed them at an aftermarket key provider, and got away with not needing to send them my keys... the key blanks I need have come in.  As we've discovered, we need a proper locksmith to cut the keys, as the machines that everybody else uses won't hold the blanks properly.  Vic went to the nearest locksmith, and he expressed discomfort that the keys would work.  Still, he cut one, and it opens the gas cap on the Vanagon, so she went back and got him to cut the rest.  2 of the keys don't work, so I'll have to figure out what I want to do about that.  40% failure rate is disheartening... this is getting to be a headache :o(
