Where do you stash you're hat?

Now that I've got a power commander under the rear seat, my hat doesn't fit anymore. I'm not really into a tankbag or big tail bag, so what's everybody else doing? Anybody make a small tail bag that doesn't stand out too much and I could fit a hat in?

I stick mine right next to my guage, it fits with the bill kind of folded in half facing you in between the guage and your brake cable. It's like it's made to fit there, never flew out in 2 years, 6000mi. and 178MPH!! I hope you can get where I'm talking about.

I think I do the same thing..........The place I'm talking about is in between the gages and the windscreen with the bill of the hat pointing out towards you.

I'm gonna have to try that, I have the double bubble so there should be plenty of room up there...thanks for the idea.

Get a beanie; try not wearing a hat; put it in your jacket; get a solo seat and fit it in above the frame/lock mech; sit on it; clip elastic to the cap and wear it behind your head...

I'll try and think of some more silly ones later. See, you're riding a ZX10, you don't need anything else to make you loko cool.

I wear one of those Icon chest/back protectors, you can slip the bill of your cap up under the chest protector, so that the cap is kind of laying on your stomach. Can't even tell it's there when you are riding.

Proper lubrication is the solution to 90% of life's problems.

tuck the bill of the cap in the back of your pants, it keeps the bill from getting messed up. Used this all the time with my cap when wearing BDU's.

tank bag.

i used to put my wallet, cell phone and hat all in the tail section.... until one day i nearly lost my wallet. somehow it ended up down inside the tail fairing..

i just have a small joe rocket tank bag, works great when your 1 piece suit has no pockets... carry a map, bottle of water, wallet, cell, etc etc...

Live it before its too late.

I always keep my cell phone in my jacket or pants pocket.............if I am ever thrown from the bike and laying in a ditch somewhere I want my phone as close as possible. Not very practical if you are wearing a one piece though.....
