Where do you all carry your registration and other important papers on your bike? Always had touring bikes that had locking storage? Hate to carry them in wallet. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Other than an insurance card what do you "have" to carry? Card fits in my wallet and I also have a picture of it on my phone. Could take a pic of your "papers". Dunno?

In Va required to have insurance papers, registration and inspection papers. Just hate carrying them in wallet. Was just looking for something simple.

I read where one guy had his papers rolled up in a small diameter pipe with threaded ends and caps which is then duct taped somewhere. Or tack welded but with the cap easy to get to.

With all the road checks where I live would be great if they were very easy to get to.

In WA, we have to carry the current registration, proof of insurance, and any access document (Discover Pass, in this case). I have a document envelope and keep it in the saddlebag. But, I'l thinking about one of those round billet document tubes or something.

I'm still looking. Whatever it is must provide an easy access to the documents, but still keep them secure.

Wow! In Texas, you have to carry your registration papers in commercial vehicles but not private. I like the idea of a tube attached to the frame. I'd hate for one of my buddies to slip some oregano in a Baggie in there just for fun.

I read somewhere that in Iowa that would accept a digital proof of insurance and believe they were going toward it for registration. I don't know this for fact. I would be reluctant to give the law my phone and don't know if you gave it to them if they could then "search" it. Other than that I put it in the top of my helmet in a zip lock baggy.

I use a bank teller bag to carry my registration as well as my wallet, phone, reading glasses, plus a few other things; (insurance card stays in the wallet). The teller bag is a great way to group all of the small items that I need and goes with me every time that I get on the bike. I put it in the saddlebag. I take it into the house when I finish riding. You can find the teller bag at any office supply store or even Wallyworld.
