I think the owners manual is supposed to be in a plastic wallet held under that strap!! It looks to be missing on your bike.

It is an official Honda Self Defense Weapon. If anyone gives you any lip, you can stretch it and shoot them with it. Rick

I think it is for registration and insurance. Put them in a zip lock bag. Since you need to take the seat off to get to them, don't forget they are there if a cop asks.

Ok, thanks guys that sounds plausible. Fortunately cops donít require proof of registration documents here in Au, and, insurance is not compulsory so I donít have to carry that with me. Seems an odd place to keep those documents.
