Question Can't find the glove compartment in my Sporty?...

Where do you put your registration and proof of insurance on your bike?

Right now it's in my wallet but there must be a better idea.


thanks,

Thumbs up Ziploc bag...

I'm one of those weird guys who wears my leather jacket when I ride... and I mean, every ride.

I have my registation and insurance card in a Ziploc bag, and that's kept in my pocket along with my reading glasses.

thanks,
Reg. and Ins. cards for all 3 vehicles... in the wallet
In NYC, (where I grew up) whoever had the Regi. card, had the right to operate the vehicle. Ie. if someone stole said vehicle, they would have the Regi.

i got one of those grifter license plate boxes off of ebay. its a little plastic, locking box (if someone really wanted to, they could break into it) about the size of your license plate. goes between your plate and the plate mount. i put everything in a ziploc baggie and store it in there. oh yea, paid about 15 bucks for it.

Xerox'd copy of the reg. and ins. shrunk down to wallet size then laminated. I figure if the cop doesn't like the copies, he can ticket me. I'll just run the originals by the courthouse and get it dismissed. It's not like I get pulled over every week.
