Seat Storage?

I am picking up my Rebel 500 up tomorrow and was wondering if they have any seat storage? At first I assumed no as I couldn't see it anywhere but I have come across people saying it has a tiny bit of storage. Is this true?

If so, can you access it easily?

pull one of the plastic panels off, there is a key in there. You the key to remove the seat, under the seat there is a tool kit, and your manual. There's storage for your papers, manual, but not much else.

It's a slim fit, ain't gonna get gloves or such in there. Well, maybe, but you might not get them out again thou.

Could probably take a photo if you need/want?

My manual is not written in English so can't read a **** word of it.
So I was always thinking you have to take tools with you to take the tools out from under the seat "strange"
What panel has the Allen key behind left or right?

It's behind the right panel, but I think you need a flathead screwdriver to remove it lol.

I just replaced my allen head seat screws with thumb screws to make life easier.

Hondas thought was that "everyone has a coin on them", so you're supposed to get the tool out with that.

I haven't carried coins in my pockets in years. And honestly, the only reason I carry cash is for nights that I shoot pool league, as not all of tbe places we shoot take cards.

I suppose it's different in Japan, though, where basically everything less than $10 is a coin.
