In the jail purse.

Don't you know about foreign police? They take you up a hill, beat you up and then they bum you!

Yeah. and if they don't kill you, you kill yourself because of the shame of you getting a boner whilst you was being bummed!

I don't hide cash. I don't flaunt it, either. Big bills in a different pocket.

Hide a credit card, your passport and bike key, maybe a couple of bills.

If you get mugged give them your cash. If you only have change they may beat the hell out of you for spite.
A hundred or even two is better than a beating.

I know a guy who resisted and was laid up for a month. He had 40 bucks in his wallet.

In case of emergency, I keep $1000 cash in a zip baggie, folded and taped black on black under the seat. The baggie also has a slip of paper with all my credit card numbers recorded, as well as a bank card to a different account.

Normally, my wife and I use one credit card for gas, meals and accommodation. The only other credit card we carry is under the seat. We carry a minimum of cash, maybe $300 between us. So far we've never been hassled, touch wood.

There was only one time when I had to go into my stash. We were in Eastern Oregon and the regulator in my scooter blew up, taking the stator with it, as well as the $1000 under the seat.

Air box

Back of headlight mask

In shave kit

Under boot insoles

In the pockets that hold your armor pads

there are a zillion little places to stash a couple bucks.

Lucky i checked all the pockets in a tank bag I just sold.
There was a $100 in there from a trip 3 years ago!

Hey, thanks for all the good tips. I ended up keeping $200-$300 in my billfold and the rest in my jacket inside pocket. I had it divided between American and Canadian. It worked well, didn't think twice about it. And was never in a situation that I had to worry about. But I never let my jacket out of my sight.
I get a lot more nervous on business trips to Chicago than on my bike in Canada/Alaska.

I roll mine up and put it in the hole in the middle of my frame sliders. I then plug the hole with a plastic plug from Hone depot.

Where do you hide your cash?

Since I started riding over 50 years ago I kept a $5 bill and a spare key taped inside my headlight bucket. Today my vintage BMW, all my Triumphs, my BSA and a couple of my other old bikes I now have all have large headlight buckets. Today it's 2 $20 bills, spare credit card and a spare key. Some of you old farts remember when gas was twenty five cents a gallon? That's why I only kept $5 there back then. A dollars worth of gas you could ride all day. Anyway, inside my riding pants I had a small zippered pocket sewn that holds money and credit cards. ATGATT!

Works well for us also.

AK safety

I have a Honda NC700X. I can hide money in the frunk or under the pillion which opens with a key for gas. I put a couple hundred in the frunk (the trunk which looks like a gas tank but isn't).

You don't need to worry about being robbed in AK. However, the petty thieves in Anchorage are horrible. I lived there for 6 years. They would steal anything not nailed down. I've had friends with broken car windows over a couple of quarters in the cup holder. One friend gave up, she took out the radio and everything of value and left her car open all the time. Saved on broken windows. Campgrounds on the Kenai Peninsula are notorious for petty theft as is Carcross in the Yukon.

Shut the frunk up and ride.

I am in Mexico, but this works well here. I split my cash, usually get $400 at a time from an ATM, keep change and small bills in one pocket, the bulk of bigger bills in my wallet. THIS IS KEY: I keep my debit card in a third hidden pocket in my jacket. My jacket goes everywhere with me. I usually pay for stuff with small bills, but can pay for bigger expenses such as hotels out of wallet. If I lost one pack or the other, I can start all over again with the Debit card. This way you are flashing a minimum of $$$ at any time and the only time I flash the Debit card is at the ATM machine.
