It used to be easier to fit the 1911 for a thumbreak when we knew exactly what thumb safety came with the gun and had an exact casting of it, but that was back in the old days. You know, when only colt and springfield were popular for 1911"s. Now almost every gun maker has a 1911 in the line and all the safetys are not the same. Also what happened was the extended safety's became popular and standard on factory guns, that the problem reared its ulgy head. If you do get a thumbreak, make sure it does not knock the safety off. Let that holster maker know exactly whats on the gun. And still it may happen, the extended ones are right in the way of where the snap for the thumbreak needs to be. But thats not to say a holster can not be made.

I ride a cbr1000, which has a much more aggressive seating position than my friend's harley. He carries a USP45 Compact in a Blackhawk Serpa- I have one for my M&P45, they are very secure, inexpensive, and readily available. I keep my pistols in IWB- VMIIs for all my Berettas and my 5" 1911. Never had a problem with any of them working loose over the course of multi-hour rides, and as you can guess I move around a lot on the bike.
