I've learned that. I always put my key (and phone) in the cupholder or in the little bin. That way I don't forget it (and my pockets are empty to drive).

Guilty. I am around 65kg (I know, I need to loose some weight). I do have the factory lowered suspension which might make it a little harder to put on the centre stand.

The cat does nothing for CO2, but it does reduce other toxic elements (CO, NOx and HC to H2O, CO2 and N2).
