OK Sandy, first things first, if you are going to keep responding to these
replies then you need to follow the norm by not top-posting.
Secondly, it might help if you gave us a little info. What year and model
is the bike?
Is it a bagger with the ignition switch and fork lock on the top or one of
the newer dynas or softails with the lock on the side of the steering neck?
Did you try pushing in and/or pulling out on the key as you turn it?
I'm assuming that the lock was messed up prior to you touching it, or else
it wouldn't have turned all the way to the right.
I'm assuming this uses a barrel key (most do) so it sounds like the outer
part of the lock has slipped allowing the tab on the key to get out of
alignment with the notch on the lock. Or something like that.
It wouldn't hurt to take some of the other suggestions by lifting the front
end of the bike to get some of the pressure off of the lock and spraying a
little penetrating oil at the key/lock then letting it sit for a while.
Unfortunately it sounds like you may have to wait until the SO returns
before any more damage is done.

I would work on damage control at this point. He's probably not gonna be
too happy when he returns so you need to remind him of who left the bike in
the driveway and that he's lucky it happened there and not on the road
somewhere.

Admitting your problem is the first step to recovery. Congrats!

While I've yet to meet Shaggy in person, I've talked to him on the phone.
Trust me, the "S" is where the similarities end!

That's easy, just call him Shappy long 'nuff and he'll answer to it.
Already does. Hack, Shappy n' Snarl... definately not a law firm.
