Carry around your registration in something that looks like a pipe bomb.

Functional, but I still lol'd

Placed in to Ziploc which is then placed into my helmet, between the comfort liner and foam liner. Always with me, always accessible.

I haven't worried about it until now but there are reasonably accessible places inside the fairing that would work. Just tape a ziploc baggie in there with a strip of gorilla tape* and fold your reg up inside. I wouldn't use a non-locking glove box as people always dick with those. If you've ever parked a convertible anywhere the top down and found the glove box open when you came back you know how this is.

Not sure why cops need it anyway since by the time they've walked up to you they've already got your info from your license plate. When they see the same name on your driver's license that should pretty much cover it. Which is probably why they've never given me a problem about it.

*Gorilla tape will stand up to anything. I once used some to secure a loose plastic panel under the valance of my wife's car while on a long trip, and it withstood the direct blast of freeway-speed rain and puddles for months before I got around to securing the way it was meant to be.

Put it in a ziplock (not those cheap ones) and duct tape it to the forks.

Yup.. You get a weird look every once in a while but it's waterproof.. And the ziplock ensures it stays dry.

Kinda hard to carry registrations in your wallet when you've got & ride multiple bikes. For my sport bikes, I have it in a baggie under the seat. For my dual sport, since I always wear the same jacket when on it, I carry it in one of the pockets. Sure would be nice, though, if we could just have an electronic copy on our smart phones, eh? *sigh* Ah, to dream.....

I keep mine under the seat in a plastic bag. It's not THAT hard to get to it, and I never have to anyway.

I almost said the same thing the other day when this topic came up, and then realized that would involve handing an unlocked smartphone to a public official, something I'm not ever likely to do without first being softened up with a few vigorous truncheon beatings.

Keep mine in my wallet in the same slot as my insurance chit. It's harder to forget that way.

Easy if you only have one bike. Much harder when you have multiple.

True. If I ride my second bike on the street, no amount of paperwork's going to keep me from getting a ticket.
