Hello guys and gals, today after may wife and I got back from a short ride she brought up this issue that we haven’t had happen before with any other bike. We ride a new 2018 DCT Tour Wing. I walked away from the bike and of course the bags all lock up leaving her unable to access her stuff. This could happen at a gas station or anywhere else. Is there a way to walk away with the FOB in my pocket and leave the bags and trunk accessible for her without buying another FOB?
Thank you and we’re very excited to be on a Wing again after a 3 year hiatus on an Indian.

Using the UNLOCK button on the Honda SMART Key, you can enable those who don't possess the key to open the compartments. It is the button that looks like the trunk lid is open. Page 128 of the owners manual.

Using the remote transmitter
To allow a person who does not possess
the Honda SMART Key to open
compartments, press the UNLOCK button
on the Honda SMART Key (Turn signals
blink 2 times).
When the UNLOCK button is pressed, the
compartments can be opened by someone
who does not have the Honda SMART Key.
If you press the UNLOCK button, but
nobody opens any of the compartments
within about 30 seconds or about 30
seconds have passed after an opened
compartment is closed, the compartments
automatically will relock (Turn signals blinks
once).
uWhen the 30 days have passed after the
ignition switch is turned to OFF or after the
buttons of the Honda SMART Key is
operated, the remote transmitter will no
longer operate. To reset the system, turn
the ignition switch ON once and then OFF.

Polecat get another fob so your wife will have one. I went back and forth about purchasing another. Nice to have a backup if something should happen to the one and only fob. Your going to keep this bike for years like most wing owners, you got thousands in this bike already, don't get cheap now. Make it an anniversary gift. Welcome to the forum. I purchased from Cyclemax, best price.

That doesn't seem like too bad a price and is a good idea to keep in mind in case a family member can't think of a good gift for you that isn't too expensive (e.g., for birthday, Christmas, etc.).
