Keys fail. Ignitions fail. Scratch the paint, get lost, tumblers wear and the key falls out. You can come up looking for a ride home just as easy with a keyed ignition as a keyless one.
All that said, once the WOW factor wears off, keyless ain't all it's cracked up to be. There is something that you get from reaching into your pocket or beltloop or whatever and coming up with your bike key.
You sweat a chunk of your life away and your key ring is a testimony.
But I am sure as shooting going to move the switch from that silly location between the jugs. It's like the tunage and cruise controls. Must have been the end of the week in Victory Design and they said "c'mon Poindexter, just stuff the ignition switch and the damn controls in there anywhere. It's beer thirty for crying out loud! We ain't waiting on you."

We can't help it
We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go
