Where to keep insurance info...

So, my bike is brand new and I want to show it off without much alteration. Anyone using a smallish pouch/pocket for ins. card, wallet, etc.? Not to offend, but I'm not a big fan of saddlebags (until I go on longer trips at least). Anyone have suggestions on what I could look for? I searched for "pouches" and got a lot of windshield pouches but I don't have a windshield yet.

Do you have tool storage compartment under seat like we do on the 900? Could also take a picture and have them on your phone? I think that's legal. Might wanna check local laws. Be good for insurance info too.

Grifter License Plate Storage Box

here is an option I've found that looks like it good for a small emergency stash as well.

Do you have a smart phone? Take a pic, or get a digital copy.
Plus having your INS paper and registration is old... The cops can look it up all that info an more with your drivers license and your plate.
They'll still ask for it, as it's part of the test to see how you'll react and comply to the request. I haven't had insurance papers in my car for years and when the pic on my phone was a year out of date the cop didn't need to see it and said "don't worry i can get that info" and that was 2004....

I totally forgot about just having it on my phone! Thanks! No, the Vulcan S doesn't have under seat storage. I think the girl in me thought I needed to have a purse.

Hi Rice Girl

I have a small leather magnetic tank bag that can also be attached to your belt. It is like this one on eBay;

Soft Genuine Leather Magnetic 3 Pocket Motorcycle Tank Storage Bag 11" x 7" | eBay

It has three separate compartments that I keep my keys, phone, small cable lock, jackknife, insurance and registration papers, maybe a granola bar or two when out for the day... Nice bag easy to carry around although I usually lock mine in my saddlebag.
I have a 1700 Classic and the bag fits great between the top of my seat and the gauge cluster. Magnets hold well, never a problem with bag shifting around or coming loose.
