    Are you asking, should you blow your money on a gun safe, or a HD softail?

    If you have touring luggage you can probably use any of the small under seat car lockboxes that attach with a cable. You could probably route the cable through the frame in a way that wouldn't interfere with the swingarm or other suspension. I'm assuming you want to stow the gun for a short time if entering a business where its prohibited, the luggage on the bike offers far less protection from discovery than the locked interior of a car or truck and zero protection against theft.

    Me, the gun stays on my person though if I take to bringing my ranch hand I may devise a cable lock so I can stow it in a saddle bag if running in for lunch, haven't decided yet, rarely venture beyond KY so shouldn't be a major issue either way if I bring it in if I holster it but its a long holster lol.

    For any Harley's with hard fiberglass saddle bags kinda pricey but is made for the larger bikes .
    If you have leather bags you can buy a cable box with keyed lock at any bass pro,cabela's, type store .

    Herein lies the problem. HD Softails do not have hard saddlebags.

    To the OP without adding hard bags to the bike anything else would not be secure enough to leave a firearm unattended.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    I've always used a lock box with stainless cables secured on a stud coming off the fender strut. The same stud that my quick disconnect sissy bar/back rest locks on. The cable slips under the saddlebag lid and is difficult to see.

    I only leave my pistol in it when I need to go into somewhere that I can't carry. And I go out of my way to avoid those places, so it's not used very often.

    Gun Vault or Stackon make small what they call portable safes. They come with a steel cable to mount to a bolt on the bike, you can put the safe in a leather saddlebag very easy. I had an 04 Fatboy and just carried it all the time. I now have a 02 Electra Glide, mounted a safe by drilling it out so I can use the bolts on the bike to mount it. Only time I use it is when I am at my Primary job, no firearms allowed....grrrrrrr.

    I own a softail (Night Train). I didn't explore this thought for very long, because there is nothing secure about a motorcycle. Any crook with tenacity can cut your locks/cables and load the entire bike up onto a pickup and drive off with everything. Especially if they see you going to the trouble to lock something up in your bike.

    I've always thought the same about cars; break a window and you have access to anything in the car. Having a secure-it safe on a bike or car does nothing but slow a thief down, but it's better than nothing if you must disarm for a short time. At least IMO.

    But I agree stealing the bike is VERY easy and quick.

    I use a small lockbox with cable on my Harley. Works great.

    I use a NanoVault in my car right now and I will be getting a second one to put in my saddlebag on my Softail.
