Just as aerodynamic airplanes are simple and streamlined, a motorcycle--which manages to balance an engine and a seat between two wheels--has a mechanical integrity, with intertwining pipes, chains and springs, that is fascinating to behold - Peter Plagens
The problem here is the wafers in the lock are spring loaded to follow the cuts in the key, but the contamination in the lock is preventing them from returning to follow the profile. They are pushed out and stay there.
The best thing to do is soak the mechanism with a very lightweight oil (good 'lol WD40, or a lightweight gun oil) for a couple hours, then insert the key, try to turn it in both directions without forcing things too much, and remove it to help free up the wafers. The lowest wafers are going to be the most difficult to free up because they are only engaged when the key is fully inserted, and that's where the water (and whatever else the water brings with it) will accumulate. After 10 or so attempts add more oil and continue. It will take about a half hour or more to get things moving, but it usually works.
