You may have bent , or just twisted in the housing one of the forks ,, check the alignment of each , if it just twisted loosen the bolts for the hold downs of the fork assembly and align, if its bent ,, you must replace it

Car is stuck in my front yard and the ground is soft

I suppose that you have the steering wheels on full lock at the same time as trying to drive it out . Well rear tyres in mud do not make the best traction for front wheel ploughs . Only turn the front wheels slightly a bit at a time . Jack up the rear and place heaps of foliage under the tyres and all the way back to where you want to get out . In other words make a drive way that will allow the tyres to grip and keep the rpm's to little more than is necessary to move the car. Spinning the wheels madly is a movie myth . Slow and easy will get you out

2005 saturn vue, have rubbing sound when turning steering wheel at low speeds,occurs when backing up or going foward

I would start by inspecting the tire and wheel well for any physical contact. Outside of that, is sounds like a wheel bearing. A failing wheel bearing or a bearing with a flat spot will groan and sometimes mimic the sound of mud tires. A flat spot can be causes by even a slight impact the the wheel.

2000 Valkyrie Interstate 8,400 miles. After installing a new front tire and heading for ride, I noticed while going straight, my handlebars and fairing were pointing to the right a bit. Getting on level...

provided the wheel and spacers were reinstalled correctly, you can loosen 3 of the 4 the tripple clamp pinch bolts and push the wheel against a wall until straight and retighten, the forks may have had a slight twist and the wheel was holding it straight, when the wheel was reinstalled the axle would pull them back to where they should be

My ignition switch is lock with the wheel turned the key wont unlock it

Squirt some WD-40 into the key hole, put the key in, and then pull on the handlebars hard to the same side as they are turned in. Try working the key back and forth while you have the pressure on the handlebars.

Handlebars loose

Construct shims from aluminum (soda / cola) cans with scissors. Be careful not to cut yourself, sheared aluminum is very sharp. After you have cut a wide strip of aluminum, wrap it around the handlebar and put it between the handlebar and the clamps. This will increase the diameter of the handlebar and allow your clips to exert more pressure on the handlebars making them tighter. Try not to leave any aluminum exposed after fixing it; it's sharp.

Ignition key is stuck in the cylinder

Did u try turning the steering wheel slightly in either direction? The steering wheel can 'jam' causing the key to seem stuck in the ignition. Simply turning the steering wheel a bit relieves the pressure and the key will turn. Let me know if this works for u

Can't plug in the charger.

Try gently dabbing a bit of vegetable oil onto the mud - try and get the mud saturated but dont stick the phone in a bowl of oil. Depending how much clay etc there is in the mud, this should soften it up enough to clean it out. remove the battery before doing any poking around in the hole, and use something a bit stronger than a matchstick (metal is not ideal) hunt for something made of strong plastic. Be patient, you may have to dig it out bit by bit. Hope this helps, if the oil doesn't soften the mud enough then please ask again, there are other more dangerous ways to do it :)
