Question Bike hiding spots for $$$MONEY$$$

Calling on all seasoned bike travelers who have come up with slick ways to hide cash / documents on your bike or on you while riding through third world countries or anywhere you felt the need to have spare coin safely hidden away. I was thinking maybe under the battery, under the seat, up under the gas tank, etc...
Any creative secure spots work for you guys? Even if it took you an hour of wrenching to get to it in a real emergency, a place where you know it would still be there, safe & sound, when needed.

I carry several $100 and $20 bills rolled into cheapo Bic pen bodies. Get into trouble, flee with a few pens and crack them in half as needed. I'd use the pens for a few weeks before inserting the bill so that they would look used and then toss the loaded pens at the bottom of a bag. Disposable pens aren't usually high theft targets in my experience but you do have to remember not to loan them out!

I usually have spare cash and copies of important documents in the map pocket on the rear of my jacket. Stick in in a ziplock bag along with a spare key and, no worries.

I've been hiding my money and dope in a tube in my gas tank every since I seen Easyrider . Seriously I do the same as ravenragner spare key and cash in a baggie in the back pocket of my Kilimanjaro.

So I'll suffer the embarassment and ask: https://www.aerostich.com/product.ph...cat=473&page=1 Anyone use/have used this? Is is "inconspicuous" enough? The other idea I had was a special compartment or something in the Jesse cutout for the pipe -- I was actually thinking a handgun could fit nicely there if one were apt to carry such a thing

Wow... I need to change my ways...

I have got to stop stealing tank bags in 3rd world countries and start stealing jackets...


Another Idea: under the liner of the helmet.

Just don't keep all of your eggs in one basket, so to speak. I've actuall been cosidering getting one of thos aerostich things for no other purpose than to keep a few smallish spares in. You could always get one and return it if it isn't to your liking.

i'ved used an old small cheap plastic flashlight. remove the batteries and put some cash in there. just make sure the flashlight looks old, cheap & beat up as opposed to a nice new shinny mag lite.

where ever you decide works for don't stash large bills. via work I spend time in various African and South American countries and even a US20 can be hard to get rid of in cities .3rd world countries are just too afraid of counterfeit money especially USD's
