So, the catch 22 continues. To recap:
Have a key for the bike, but it will not work in any of the locks. Have a locksmith that will help me out, but I need to take a lock and key into him to straighten it out.
Ignition is a PITA to remove (as you have all mentioned)
The gas tank cap cannot be removed without the key and without breaking it
The helmet lock needs the seat removed to remove
The seat needs the rear toolbox opened to allow it to be removed, and guess what? Key wont work in there either!
I am really trying to avoid breaking anything, so it looks like the front end comes apart tomorrow to get at the ignition.
