Never down. ~15k miles. Cerulean(?) silver. Ridden easy, but I let it sit too long. Put in a new battery, updated tag and then couldn't open the gas cap. Evidently the lockset sat too long and the key won't turn to open. I have not pushed it hard enough to break the key. Needs gas to start. All internals solid. Tires are a few years old, but only have ~400 miles or so on them. Corbin seat cracked, but I have the original in "newish" condition.

Pics show bike without panniers, but they are here. Givi rear rack, sliders, windshield.

Needs TLC. Taking offers. Title in hand. Need it gone. PM me.

Vista, CA.

Any "Stabil" when it sat ? Ethanol gas ? Unless indoors and "climate controlled" I'd be very wary of old tires. No warning when they let go....
If you can open tank I'd inspect closely for any sign of rust.....would probably remove and/or completely remove any old fuel.

The one I am riding, I bought in SF and never checked the key in the gas cap. When I stopped to get gas, I had the same problem. Only problem was I had to ride it home, Vancouver, wa. I bought a can of WD and applied it around the key and every so often I would try it, work it, etc. Eventually I broke it loose and was able to ride home. If you can get the key out: work it in and out and try to turn it, Let it site and maybe overnight. You can always remove the assembly and work the bolt/strike and wd on the bottom side. That is what I did after getting home and haven't had any problem since here in Vancouver (13 years). AIR, I think I got the pliers out of the tool kit and used it to grip the key at the point it comes out of the slot to reduce torque on the stem as the key doesn't go in to far. I was able to put more force/torque on it and it finally released.
