Thanks for the suggestions. I've got it stuck in the tool compartment at the moment. A plastic bag is a good idea, I think I will do that. I also like the idea of keeping copies in your phone, but I'm not sure if it is legal here. Doesn't a cop usually want to take the docs back to his car and run the numbers? I haven't been stopped in so long, can't even remember when, maybe in UT in '03.
I might just pull the tool kit out of there and store it in the shop. Seems pretty unlikely that I would try to repair anything on the side of the road.
Currently don't have any bags or trunk. Too early to know if I will go on longer rides.
Please, call me Bill.
