    I use a Serpa shoulder holster for riding , due to the waist length only jackets I wear. Also I believe the gun will be less likely to be damaged or damage me if/ when I hit the blacktop.

    There is a magnetic tank bag that becomes a fanny pack and has a compartment with a holster in it.
    It looks natural that you would put the tank bag in the tour-pak (or saddlebag) leaving the bike ...
    Saw it at several Harley dealerships around here; I can get more info if you want, and a pix.

    I agree that the shoulder holster would be the better way to go for riding. Still allows easy access to the firearm but doesn't lend itself to accidentally showing like an IWB or OWB would if the jacket rides up, or without a jacket if the shirt turns into a sail and blows up.

    And no, the fanny pack and a Harley would not be an option for me.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I can't go there either. IWB or in the zipped pocket of my mesh jacket.

    Think about if you went down. Place it so it won't injure you.

    Shoulder holster is the way to goI My Sportster likes it and so do I.
    Here's Jake. Haven't broken him yet. He's a strong amd stubborn 93 pumping out enough power (88-90) on the dyno to bring the wheel up in 3rd gear.
    ALWAYS wear your gear from personal experience. We went down at 50 mph and survived. Buy a set of Draggin jeans as I lost 1/4 of my left butt cheek when it happened and helmet took a good hit.

    you could and only people in the "know" will know what's in the pack. or you could drop in a pocket gun in your jacket. i either keep a pocket gun in my jacket or in the windsheild bag.

    Go with the fanny pack. Riding is about being and individual, if it works for you more power to you. I have seen many fanny packs at bike rallies. It is a convenient way of carrying your stuff.
    I had thought about a shoulder holster but when we are riding and I go in some place warm I can't keep that big heavy leather jacket on and stay comfortable. So I stick with IWB and a cover garment under my jacket.

    That's why I go with the Maxpedition when I can't comfortably IWB. I can sling that low on my hip for a good draw, and don't have to worry about concealment if I go down to just a t-shirt. It's also convenient for all the other little effluvia that collects in your pockets.

    I donít see why not.

    I carry a G26 in a nemesis holster in my jacket, or a kel-Tec 380 in a nemesis holster in my back pocket.

    I use a Nikon camera fanny pack, when we go out on the boat, to transport the G26 from the truck to the boat.
    I also keep my wallet in it, so when we get out of the boat for lunch I take it with me. Instead of clipping it on my waist, I usually just sling it over my shoulder; My wife jokingly calls it my man purse.

    The only down side I can see is if the road should come up and hit the shinny side of your bike.

    But then that would be the least of your troublesí.

    Johnson, that Ultra should have a compartment in the leg faring that could carry if need be. Least my 05 did. I have been carrying OWB with a Galco for years. Just ordered a Miami Vice Classic from Optics Planet that I'm going to use while riding, I'll let ya know how it works out if it ever warms up.
    Ride Safe.

    Smile New Rule

    OK, new rule on this thread...
    You can't flame wearing a fanny pack on a Harley unless you really own and ride one.
