Do any of you use it?? Regularly?? Once in a while? Never??

I don't use mine on a regular basis. The only time I do use it is when I'm washing the bike to keep water out of the ignition.

How bout you??

I very rarely used mine. Only time I can really think of is when I was leaving the scoot at the airport while I was out of town.

When I first had the bike I used it all the time (because it must've been there for a reason), and just got into doing so as a habit.

I sort of view it like the windows on a car ... if your  windows are closed and the doors are locked no one's going to stick something in your ignition just "cause it's there".  I've read plenty of stories from folks whose bikes have been accosted in various ways just because they're so "open".  With the shutter closed there's no obvious access to the ignition.  With it open I can easily see some "kid" sitting on the bike, and then poking something in the ignition just to see if it might start.  I suppose the probability of such happening has a lot to do with where you leave it and how long you're away from it.  It's just cheap insurance that keeps honest people honest (true crooks will defeat it regardless).

Never used it.  Primary key is not an original 'magnetized' one, so can't on a consistent basis.

I can't even remember the last time I closed mine one either of my bikes.
