Where do you keep your registration and insurance papers?

I got a cigar tube, the plastic type, painted it black, put velcroe around it, and put the papers inside. I put velcroe on the inside of the fairing, just above the light cover. I attach the cigar tube to the velcroe inside the fairing. This keeps it inplace for when I need it, it is hidden from anyone passing by the bike looking for something to steal, and it stays dry inside the tube.


For my smokes, cell phone charger, and misc... things, I got a pouch that slips over the sun-visor of a car, (the type with velcroe straps) and wrapped the top strap around the cross bar a couple times, then it fastens to the bottom strap that has been run under the handlebars. I carry a lot of "stuff" in that little pouch, and it is an easy on/off if I want to take it inside, or put it on the other bike.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

In a Black painted 6" PVC sprinkler riser. They are threaded on both ends. Sealed one cap permantly, lubed the other. I have it attached with Zip Tie right under the luggage rack wedged on top of the break light. It's out of the way, watertight and totally invisible to the casual glance.

In my toolbox but I think I will keep an eye on this topic to see what turns up.
Could be a combination.
Couple of good ideas so far.

Old Fahrt
Too young for medicare
Too old for women to care
I aint paranoid. The whole world IS out to get me.

I just bought some MotoFile's from CycoActive. Small, water resistant, inexpensive, and make good presents.

I had been looking to make a tube that would mount on top of the headlight bucket. Never found the exact stuff I wanted. Not long ago I found the MotoFile at CycoActive http://www.cycoactive.com/ and now I have a place for my registration +. I also keep a copy of the registration in a ziploc bag in both riding jackets.

Since I suffer from multiple bike syndrome, I carry a backpack and the papers are in seperate zip-loc bags in their own pocket. Modern bikes (KLR....modern :wink: ) don't seem to have convenient places for paperwork.

Created this today. Small zip lock bag with paperwork inside. Tube is very tight. End caps are very tight and no doubt watertight for all practical purposes. Hardly noticeable.

I carry all my papers in a waterproof pouch that I picked up at the bike store near me, cost about $5.00. Keep it in my Riding Jacket. I can also fit my cell phone and whatever else in it if I get caught out in the rain.
