    Motorcycling and CC

    I wanted to make this thread to see how many people on here carry while riding their motorcycle. I got my first Harley 4 years ago for my 18th birthday present and have put more miles on it the past 4 years than I have in my car. Aside from these next 4 months when the bike is parked, it is my every day vehicle.

    I'd like to hear what you guys ride, what you carry when you ride, and how you carry it. With only carrying the past two months, I didn't have much time to get comfortable carrying on my bike. This was mainly due to the fact that I've been going though my trials with different holsters. I'll really be curious to see how you are carrying while riding.

    Safe riding!

    2011 Ultra Limited, and it depends on the weather and what I'm wearing.
    Cooler months I go with the 3" 1911 IWB b/c I'm wearing a jacket.
    Summer months its usually a lightweight J-frame or Glock 26 appendix carry b/c I'm in a T-shirt.

    I ride a 250cc bike and carry the same riding as not riding. Either a J-frame IWB or LC9 IWB. Though with my winter gear on it would take some effort to get to my weapon.

    I ride a 96 FB and a RGU touring bike. I carry IWB tuck most of the time left side right draw. I have no intention of ever trying to draw while moving. I do some times carry the larger auto in a left side chest or in a vest pocket.
    August 30 I was carrying my SR9C left side chest under a shirt and jacket. I saw a big Doe and decide it was Deer hunting time and took it down dead center at 60mph with a 900 lbs RGU bullet. When it was all over the Deer was dead So I guess I won. My SR9C was some how laying next to my head That was under the bike.
    Some thing to think about when you carry and ride. I do keep at Nano vault with me for times I must leave it behind The cable is attached to the bike . But I can still remove the vault if I need to.

    2006 H-D Road King. Have been to Sturgis twice and back strapped with a Colt 1991A1 Government in a Yaqui slide. My travelsmith vest covers it fine, I like all the pockets. Several times bikers came up to me and asked me to take their picture. I guess they thought I was a photographer. In colder weather it rides in a Black Hills shoulder holster under my leather. Very easy.

    Recently sold my V Star 1100 and carried both a Kimber in Crossbreed IWB or a SW 4006 in a Bianchi shoulder holster. I didn't have a shoulder holster for the Kimber but preferred that style while riding so it was usually the 4006 with me. Not sure why but I felt like it would be more protected and secure if I went down and had to do the old rashy slide. Accidentally exposing, (OC not legal here) was also more of a concern and so carrying in a shoulder holster pretty much put that to bed, especially being under a leather jacket.

    I carry just on either or my 2 bikes (600 and 1200 cc) just like I do when not carrying. Either IWB (Crossbreed Supertuck) or OWB (Blackhawk) at 4:00. . Which holster is based on what I'm wearing. The leather coat makes the OWB easier, unless I'll be needing to take the coat off at a stop. Both holsters are comfortable when sitting.

    2009 FLHR - about 18K miles per year. This is my main commuter vehicle and about-town wheels. The only days I don't ride are the days with snow/ice on the road.

    I carry a G36 either IWB at 8 o'clock (I'm left handed) or in an Alessi shoulder rig. The Alessi setup is ideal for cooler weather when wearing a short leather jacket. Occasionally when I have my long-tailed leather shirt for cover I'll carry a G21sf in a Galco concealable (OWB).

    FLHTC until there's salt (I only put about 2500 a year on the car). 4 o'clock IWB with a Ruger SR9c. Been looking for a decent CC vest though...

    And that said, I do need to ride out of IL before I can bother with anything other than the empty holster.

    Darn state.
    NRA Life / Endowment UT, FL, passed and waiting for IL at the moment.
