ride with junk in your pockets? what do you do

Nice bike!

As for me, I when I put my wallet/cellphone in my jacket, I notice I get cramps on that side after riding for a while. So now, I put everything underneath my seat - EZ Tag, Wallet, Insurance, Cellphone, Bungee Cord. The only thing in my jacket or leathers is a debit card for purchasing gas. I used to have the EZ Tag in my chest pocket as well and stopped because I figure it would do more damage of I went down and landed on my chest.

Yup. Hand crafted from the guys at http://www.happy-trail.com/

With a bit of marine grade sealant they are water tight.

If I need all that in an afternoon, maybe traveling by bike isn't the best option.

I get that. I'm not saying everyone needs to carry this. I'm just a little insane.

I just throw all my in my pockets. Whichever pocket has room is where it goes. I have a friend that puts everything in designated pockets. He also has to tap a door three times before he opens it but he is taking medicine and is doing much better.

For everyone that doesn't ride with their cell phone on their person you may one day feel differently if you crash and can't get to your bike to retrieve it or find where your cell phone flew to. If it is on your person you will be able to call for help if necessary.
