Carry Registration?

Are motorcyclists (specifically in VA) required to carry registration and/or proof of insurace? If so, where do you keep it?

They are in IN and IL and I'd be shocked if that weren't true in every State of the Union.

Every bike I know of has at least some "trunk" space. Perfect for registrations and insurance cards. Put them in a zip lock to keep them dry/clean.

I keep insurance in a ziplock baggie in a seldom used pocket of my jacket. Just more incentive to wear the gear I guess.

We have a small sticker on our plates, too, but there is also a piece of paper with information like the make and model of the vehicle, VIN, owner name and address, etc.

There a small door on the underside of my seat that says something like "important papers". Perfect place to put the registration and insurance.

I have a non-OEM tail on my bike. That eliminates ANY room to "store" things in/on/around/under the thing.

I normally (am forced to) carry it in my jacket. They have pockets for a reason!
