PostSubject: Insurance and other document storage question   Fri Feb 17, 2017 9:14 am

Just bought my first WR250R, and unlike the Honda CBs that I have the WR doesn't have under seat storage.

Thus my question: Where do y'all keep your insurance and other documents?

The only place I can think of putting it is the tool box... but that doesn't seem particularly safe.

Thanks for any replies!

I take a ziplock bag and put the documents in that.

Then I pull the seat and put the ziplock bag under the rubber strap that holds the ECU in place. Either that or you could tape the ziplock bag to the bottom of the seat.

Don't you then have to remove the seat with a wrench if you're ever pulled over? Doesn't seem to be particularly good idea to keep a cop waiting... lol

Thanks for the advice~ I'll take it into consideration

I keep mine in a Tusk fender pack that I bolted to the flat surface above the headlight.  It isn't waterproof so I put the docs inside an Otterbox.  It's been on there awhile and been through a lot of rough stuff.  It zips so not too difficult to access quickly.

I just keep my insurance card and registration in my wallet.

LOL!  i am old and slow and most LEO's pity me. poser2 poser2

I guess it depends where you ride.  In GA everything is on a database that they have access too.  Seldom have I been asked for insurance and registration but I carry it with me.  Now TN and NC are a bit of a different story since they usually want to see registration and insurance.  If it is under the seat I tell the LEO where it is at and what I am going to do to get it.  There are things you can do to reduce the time removing your seat (like M6 wing bolts) but even though I have been meaning to do that I have not done it yet.

For the WRR and three of my other bikes I have an insurance card in my wallet at all times but the registration (and another copy of the card) is on the bike at all times.

Funny story from a ride last summer.  The GF and I were coming off the Dragon on our CB500X's on a Wednesday and I think we were about 5 over in one section (at least that is what we were told).  So once we are off the Dragon a Blount County Sheriff's car pulls up behind us and hits the lights.  We pull over and he gets in front of me and is pretty hot about something.  The GF pulls off her helmet and he about passes out when he realizes that instead of chasing two young potential felons he has managed to quarry two 60 y/o riders.  The look on his face was priceless.

His body language changed immediately and he became much more relaxed.  We had some discussion about where he clocked us going too fast since it wasn't clear to us and then he asked for the registration and insurance.  Told him that I had to remove the seat on my bike and he said that's fine.  He ended up giving us a warning and recommending a couple of pretty decent restaurants on our route to check out.  Pretty decent guy, even seemed sorry that he pulled us over but he thought we were a couple of young kids pushing our luck on a section of the Dragon that is known for a lot of wrecks.

I guess getting old has it perks too.

+1 since you always need to carry your wallet this is the way to go.
If I'm on a wet off road ride my wallet goes in a zip lock bag in my back pack, if I'm on the road its in my coat pocket.

I have a small 5"x6" waterproof bag/pouch that is flat and I used Velcro to mount it between the front plate(above the headlight) and the speedometer. It's kind of a tight fit. It has never moved or gotten wet inside And I have ridden in downpours. I had the pouch made for me by a friend who does upolstery. But if I didn't have that made for me. I would just find something about that size and if it wasn't waterproof. Just put your documents in a ziplock bag first then put that in whatever I found. An old textile wallet or whatever I could find at the dollar store. Just my 2 cents

I have a tank bag on my WRR... kind of a necessity to me for dual sporting. The docs go in a ziplock, and that goes underneath the black fabric backer for the map window on the top. In fact, I suspect that's why Wolfman put that pocket below the map window in the first place.
