Oh No - Lost my keys!!!!
PS Why don't you have the HISS problem to cope with if HondaUK are right when they say its so great? Personally I think immobilisers are great on cars but not bikes.
Agreed! Having worked in the automotive service trade until 2 years ago, I can say an immobilizer makes sense in a car where the steering, shifter, and ignition are all locked by removing the key. Even if you punch out the lock, the shifter and ECU are still disabled by the immobilizer, so the most you can do is drag it onto a flatbed and haul it away -- no small task in park. A motorcycle can still be picked up and thrown onto a caravan by two big guys, or if you know what you're doing break the fork lock and rolled away. They can't start it, but that's small comfort to you. It's still gone.
One permanent solution is to search U.S. salvages for an ECU not equipped with the HISS "feature" and compare the wiring diagram on this site with one for a HISS equipped bike in the U.K., and if the connectors for the ECU are the same pin for pin, then plug the ECU in, have a key (or a dozen) cut and you're golden. If the harness is different you will need one of those as well, but if the salvage has the ECU they may have the harness as well. Usually, ECUs sell for around $300 plus shipping, so if my grasp of the exchange rate is close you could save about $800 by going this route.
Frankly, if a car owner lost their keys and were told it would cost $1000 to get them back on the road you can bet your ass they would raise such a stink Honda would stop that RIGHT NOW!!! Are we really so much less deserving of consideration?
P.S.: One guarantee -- as soon as you jump through all the hoops to get your bike back on the road, you'll find the keys under the sofa cushion at your parent's house. That's just the way it is.
