Spent a bit over 25 yrs on the 1200 series of Goldwings. I always used the lefthand snap-pocket in the fairing for carrying a 2 1/4" SP in .357. For years my biggest concern was transferring the pistol to my strong side holster during bathroom/rest stops. Changed bikes to an ST1300 a few years ago and have had to settle on a lot less storage space, so the little "Pig" just rides on my hip at about the 4:00 position.

Did 2800+ miles last Sept in six travel days, Pa. > Fla. and back. Biggest headache was a three day stop-over in S. Carolina,(no reciprocity), for a cycle get-together...

I used to carry a pistol at 4 O'clock under a leather jacket thinking it was well concealed. It was when I was stationery but imagine my shock when I saw a biker pass me carrying the same way but with the airflow picking up the closed jacket and exposing the pistol! I think some extra vigilance is advisable, maybe have a mate check you out while riding.

Used to carry snub cross-draw OWB or 10.5" SBH in a shoulder holster.
This was early 80's in AZ so was "semi concealed" to remain legal.
End of snub holster was visible under jacket.
End of shoulder holster went in left back jeans pocket, the part visible between pocket and bottom of jacket looked like a nylon biker wallet. Fake chain completed the deception.
AZ law at the time was open carry, as long as any part of the gun or holster was visible.

I've carried many guns aboard my Goldwing, for many years. In the trunk.

I figured I would never need it while on the bike, and it was relatively easy to grab it once I was off!

Have you tried appendix carry. I find it comfortable and the most concealable!

49 years riding, 35 bikes. (16 Harley's) snubby revolver, (J-frame) in an ankle holster has always worked for me.

I recently purchased a RAP 45 and I am still looking for the "best" carry position while riding. I was trying IWB appendix for a while but I cannot get comfortable enough on longer trips. Looks like IWB or OWB at 4:30 is where I am at right now.

Because I always wear an Aerostich Roadcrafter Jacket and leather Transit Pants when riding my GL1800 or Hayabusa, it's easy to carry my Glock 43 in a front jacket pocket. If I carry the Glock 19 or SP101, I'll usually wear a shoulder holster and not remove my jacket when I'm off the bike.

Conceal carry on a bike, that's what the LC9s was invented for!

Never something I have to worry about. Much more likely to need the protective gear than needing the self protection of the gun so the jacket is always on thus making concealing as easy as it would be any other time. Keep it all consistent on or off the bike.

I have a large tank-top map case that has holsters on each side. I always keep my gun in the right holster.

Look carefully and you can see the case/holster

I normally carry either an XDS 45 or a LC9s in an IWB. But I'm thinking about getting a kydex OWB and using a longer t-shirt to cover it.
I also have an LCP that I carry in a pocket holster in cargo shorts, but I don't wear shorts on the bike.

What are all you doing for conceal carry during the hot months when there is no jacket to hide everything?


Thanks,

Shoulder rig over t-shirt but under vest.
(unless I decide to just go OPEN CARRY in a belt holster)

I ride with a LE/PS club in a Constitutional carry State, so if I "print" I do not care.
But vest covers quite well.
