Required documents and where to keep them?

Maybe this is a question for those of us in the States, but I have seen conflicting information on what documents to always have while riding (i.e. registration, proof of insurance) and then also where to keep them. Do y'all keep them in a pocket while you ride in case you get stopped and need them, or do you keep them on the bike? The only place that I could find on the bike was in a ziplock bag under the pillion seat but even that was so small it was pushing it to get them to fit.

I make a photocopy of my registration and insurance card onto one sheet of paper, then fold it and keep in my inner pocket of each of my riding jackets. This is only because the R9T doesn't have a key lock to release the seat. I usually keep under the seat in a zip lock bag on all my other old bikes.

I am thinking about getting the rear seat hump, it has stowaway compartment that's handy.

The only thing I don’t like about that idea is the scenario that the cop will then have to take my phone into his car for his little procedure. (Traffic stops work a lot different in the US than elsewhere)

“No, Sir”? Good luck with that.
Same thought here. They might take the phone back to the patrol car to run the info.
