Where to store registration paperwork

I know some have said they store their registration in their wallet, but besides that solution, has anyone come up with somewhere to store it on the bike...like under the seat in an aluminum or waterproof plastic tube? Solutions anyone?

Great idea. Mine stays sealed in my jacket pocket so it's always with me. If something were to happen (theft) I would want the registration and insurance info on me and not the bike.

I keep my papers in plastic bag and store them in my tank bag. Easy to get to going through checkpoints.

Good point.

I also ride an R1200RT and had driven over to REI in Encinitas to pick up something, parked the bike right in front of the store, walked inside, got much stuff and walked out...10 minutes max..and my jacket was gone, but my registration was a compartment on the bike. I guess either can get stolen.

I wish the DMV would create a system similar to GEICO where you have an app on the phone that displays your current insurance card and by law is accepted by law enforcement. So if I get pulled over, I just call up the app on my phone and show the officer. Registration is a different animal.

Going to REI right now, maybe they have something I can modify for my needs.

This past summer, I was traveling in Quebec with 3 wingmates. One had a rather unfortunate dismount which resulted in an SOS SPOT activation, the RCMP and seeing Canada's medical system.

Anyhow, we were left to deal with his bike after the ambulance left. The RCMP had to file a report, and there was a bit of a language barrier. Anyhow, he had the incredible foresight to have his insurance and registration (copy) taped on the on the inside of his top case with his business card. After the dust settled, turns out this was the second time that folks have used that top case info.

I put mine in a top case in a Seattle Sports Dry bag

Funny.

I've had a cell phone since around 1990 and been dead only once in 2005 when I was on vacation. I don't know about Pennsylvania, but out her in California they DON'T hook you up for not having your registration with you.

With two bikes and 3 cars, its nice to be able to have the "option" of showing a police officer your current insurance information right on a cell phone. That's NOT an option for vehicle registration paperwork....yet.
