    Handlebar Crossbar Bag

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a small bag for the handlebar crossbar. Mainly to hold things like DMV registration, Insurance papers and maybe some keys?

    Another option I use is the license plate box. Its seems like very cheap plastic but I have had no issues with it coming loose or breaking in many off road rides.
    I don't think its exactly waterproof so you should keep your registration in a ziplock bag taped inside. I kind of forgot it was back there & had to check ... yep still there!

    I think it was $16 when I got it so you might try to find other sellers.

    Domke F-900 camera pouch. Velcro straps on back wrap around fork tube(or handlebar crossbar). Good for wallet, phone, etc.

    Personally, My "Small Bag" is a heavy duty zip lock "sandwich size" bag and put the proof of insurance card and registration as well a a spare key securely sealed up inside and taped to the inside of the right side cover ( the one that covers the tool pouch ) I don't want to make it too easy for others to access while keeping everything waterproof.

    I'd rather make a potential " bad guy " have to spend some time and effort looking for it before riding off on it.

    just my $.02 for what it may be worth.

    Back in the day I'd bungee a bank bag full of tools on to the crossbar.

    Yep. Tweakers stole my tankbag, got a pair of gloves, but my docs remained safe under the side cover.
