I keep my registration and insurance card in a zip lock bag under the tool kit on my Vulcan S se.

Or which might be better for you on our bikes.

Inside the plastic molding the where lock for the access to allen wrench is stored to take off the seat.

There is a small space there to keep those papers also.

I got a small locking storage box that attaches to my license plate bracket behind the plate. It's inexpensive and easy to access. I have the registration and insurance inside a plastic bag in the box in case it leaks. It also has a foam insert that helps keep your documents from rattling around.

Where to keep insurance info...

Since you have a Vulcan S I'll give the same advice that Ralpheal316 did...ziplock bag under the seat by the tool pouch.

You don't have to carry POI and registration on your person, just on/in the bike in most states.

So what...if you're stopped by LE you have to take your key, remove the left side cover, get out the Allen wrench by the battery and unbolt your rear seat to get to your paperwork (insurance and registration)...big deal.

Besides keeping your documents dry and secure from prying fingers, doing it this way gives you a few moments to discuss with the officer WHY you were stopped and possibly talk yourself out of a ticket or just down to a warning LOL.

Don't ask me how I know. I heard it from a friend; yeah, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I wear the same jacket whenever I ride. I bought a small semi-hard plastic sleeve that holds the insurance and registration slips. That goes in the back pocket of my jacket.

I keep my insurance card under the padding in my helmet. I am also not a fan of saddlebags, but do have a small pouch that fits under my headlight on the forks. I can keep a cheap rain poncho, comb, bandana, and a folded nylon crossbody bag. (In case I pick something up on my travels.) I don't have a pic, but will take one and post.

OMG genius. I have my insurance and registration in a snack size bag under the seat in the little tool pouch...

Since you don't have saddlebags, I would put your information inside a ziplock bag and place in under the seat. I kept mine there until I bought saddlebags.
