Inside the aircleaner cover on the left side mine has a Ziploc container velcroed to the inside of the cover.

I keep my insurance cards inside of the liner of my helmet. On my bikes, for the registration: nc700, in the built-in trunk, the C50-inside the left tool kit holder, on the klx250sf, inside the tool pouch.

Exactly. That is what's it is there for.

Helmet idea is good if you don't have a variety to choose from. I kept mine in my wallet for a long time. Now inside a ziplock bag attached to the lid on my hard bag. Aircleaner cover. No thanks. Excuse me officer while I dismantle my bike to get my "papers ".

On the older Rebels, there's no disassembly: the air cover is held on with pop pins moulded to the metal cover that fit through grommet-tensioned holes in the frame. It's very much under three seconds to get it off.

On the newer ones... Well, there is _one_ screw to remove. But if you never tighten it back up, then it, too, is held on with simple pop pins.

Both my 85 & 86 have a bolt/screw for the air cleaner cover just like the 96 does. The tabs are in different locations thus preventing a direct bolt on swap between the two but are otherwise the same --- meaning the rubber grommets line up for the pop on/pop off but the single security bolt is not in the same location.

Odd. Granted, it's been a _lot_ of years since I owned a Classic, but I don't remember ever having to remove a bolt...

I guess memory really _is_ first....

I also used the toolbox, as I had saddlebags for other stuff, including some real tools.

The screw that holds my left side cover on has a wide slot so I can turn it with a coin. It kinda depends on the attitude of the person wanting to see proof of insurance, rather he has to wait while I take the cover off or show them the copy in my wallet.
