When I'm riding, I don't much care about carrying concealed. It's about the only time I open carry. Been riding accident free for 40 years and it seems that may be because I get a lot more space from the cages when they see a chick on a motorcycle with a firearm on her hip.

I have a couple of bikes, whether the pistol is on my person or in a cubby in my cockpit, it's within reach when I'm on 2 wheels (often both locations). Most often, I'm appendix carrying or pocket holstering (partially out the top) an LCP, which is no sweat to conceal.

I used to ride, as well as cycle, a lot with a G19 IWB SOB 6 o'clock, but on a sport bike, it was plain sight when my shirt blew up. I'm never one to act this way or approve of this mentality when carrying, except for when I'm on 2 wheels and on the road in motion - i.e. the condition when my shirt would be blowing up - I'm really OK with having the equivalent to a big "keep your distance" billboard on my back. I've been hit a couple times when on 2 wheels by people with more lugnuts than myself, not because they didn't see me at all, but because they didn't think to try to give enough room.
Beautiful bike

I normally always wear a jacket , have yet to hit any pavement that wasn't tougher than my skin Have friends who carry in tank bags and or saddle bags which is hard to get to. I just don't tuck my shirt in . The small of the back IWB is also used depending on which gun.
I did see at some bike rally a guy had short saddle bags that went over the tank
and he carried there.
Let us know what you do.

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?


It's a bit easier for me to say living in Washington State but, all the gear, all the time. Those are the rules I learned with and will always follow. It did suck riding home when it was 80 degrees out. But I would have kept my skin if something happened. I will have your probkem once the weather picks up this season but will most likely go with a concealed carry vest under my leather.

I've never understood the idea of leaving a gun in/on a vehicle. The vehicle isn't going to come to my aid if I need that weapon.

There are times when a gun is inappropriate and I understand securing it in a vehicle for those situations. However, a gun out in the parking lot isn't available to you 40 yards away. It might as well be in your house 150 miles away at that point.

I'm not too concerned about being able to access a firearm while on a motorcycle but I really want to have control of that firearm when off and away from the motorcycle. With that in mind, I think it's more important to have the gun on ME than on the bike. Where I go, the gun goes. I don't carry guns in tank bags, saddle bags, etc. The gun is on ME. When I walk away from that bike there's nothing unsecured on the bike that I cannot afford to lose.

Because I always used a riding jacket the gun was either in the jacket pocket, in my pants pocket or in a holster on my belt. If the gun was carried in an OWB holster I had to have another garment to conceal the holster when I was off the bike without my riding jacket. Otherwise, it just got transferred to my pocket holster when I got off the bike OR I wore the jacket with the gun in the jacket pocket.

I agree with Petrol, on me at all times, transfer carry position if needed.
