I carry IWB at 3:00 and tuck the shirt im wearing up under my belt so the wind dont whip the shirt up in the air and expose my gun. I have tested it up to 90mph, but to the best of my knowledge almost everything comes untucked about 140... and im guessing the gun could become dislodged or something else at 180+ Im prolly going to stick my g26 in pocket if i wanna go over 100.

Anyone else have anything to add about carrying while riding?:thumsup:drinks

I don't ride as fast as you Jakester. I try to keep it no faster than 70mph. I carry at 3:00 IWB with either a polo or regular shirt. I keep my shirt untucked and it stays covered surprisingly. I guess it's because I have a windshield on the bike.

You know if you ever tell a cop in your area and pose the same question to him not that i think you would but he can write you a ticket on the spot by your own admissission anything you say can and will be used against you.

Half the cops out there are cowboys who love speed as well, they just pretend like they dont do it unless they "have to".

Yeah, on a sportbike or a cruiser with no sheild or something you would'nt last 5 seconds without the shirt flapping, But even the "touring sheid's" for sportbike's dont help much i would assume as they only come up a few more inches.

I've put over 20,000 miles on my motorcycle with the windshield and about 50 without and let me tell you, I would not wan't to ever ride without it ever. More power to you guys who ride without. I know on a sportsbike you don't really have a choice unless it's something like that huge one I saw on BMW bike once :eek:

IWB at 1:00 or in the glove compartment or tank bag if I'm going to be on the road for a long stretch.

I don't know if you wear any kind of riding gear, but I would think a shoulder hoster would be fairly easy to conceal under just about any kind of riding jacket.

Yeah , sometimes i wear my icon tarmax or w/e you call it, its textile. Shoulder rig would work nice but in this heat i have been riding w/o a jacket recently... My commute to most places is under 50 mph, and sitting at the red's will give me a damn heat stroke. lol, plus it dont help all my gear is black and my bike is like 60% black, it attracts the heat like none other.

I wear a mesh jacket. I think:
a) a shoulder holster would show through too much
b) if through Murphy's Law the zipper stuck I'd be screwed :eek:

I have a number of ways to carry on a bike. Here in Florida it's too Hot to use a Shoulder Holster Normally but I like that Best. I carry a Smith 60 in my Jean Pocket inside a Sandwich Bag to protect it from the Elements. Bag Vaporises with the first shot.:rolf For a Compact 45, I use a Zippered Bag or Camera Case on the belt, right side. All of these methods of carry will work at whatever speed becomes necessary. There are other ways to carry but, "KISS".:drinks

Get one of those touristy looking fanny packs, something other than black.

When I'm on a long trip, mine goes in the "hump bag" (just forward of the seat in this picture).

Nice bike. That's also seems like an easy access to your weapon if needed.

I ride a Vulcan Nomad. I don't change carry guns or holster/holster positions when riding the bike.

I carry strong side OWB with an un-tucked T shirt every day, and thats how I ride as well as long as it's not too cold, then it's a jacket and still the same carry mode with the same gun/s.

Here's the Nomad, packed and ready to leave for the 1750 mile trip to Tenn. I made last year for 9 days of training in Knoxville.

Yes, the gun is being worn strong side [ right side ] in that picture. Wore it all the way to Tenn for the three days it took to get there. Every state I passed through on the trip honored the Az permit.

Some of my riding buddies carry a .32 Kel-Tec in their vest pocket. Haven't tried anything yet but I may have to find a solution to having a backrest on my solo seat. It wraps around to about the 3:30 position, which possibly could get in the way of carrying at 3:00. Not to worry, though. That seemingly innocent third exhaust pipe is really a concealed AIM-9 Sidewinder launch tube....:eek:

I have over 80000 miles on my Harley. .and a drawer full of holsters. I use two. A sticky holster for carrying in my front pocket or the faggie pack with quick open, holster inside. The fanny pack is great, because you can replace your wallet & put credit card, phone, etc in it for longer trips.

I use a left hand, right leg ankle holster.... I need not remove my throttle hand (assuming I would really rather get away from the threat) and my left leg is still able to shift. I am fairly ambidextrous but have a stronger right eye, which doesn't worry me as any shots from the saddle are likely un-aimed.

On average days, my NAA .22 Mag is on the right leg, with a G26 in the saddlebag. Longer, out-of-town trips, the Glock is typically worn, again in an ankle rig. On the EXTREMELY unusual days that I ride in shorts, the .22 Mag is on a neck lanyard under my T shirt.... a little harder to bring to bear, but it beats throwing rocks!
