Fanny pack on a motorcycle

This is a discussion on Fanny pack on a motorcycle within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'm really leaning towards using a fanny pack for CC on my bike. Are they really that obvious? Don't want to advertise CC....

    I'm really leaning towards using a fanny pack for CC on my bike. Are they really that obvious? Don't want to advertise CC.

    Have Mamma sew a couple "Live to Rides" on it, wear a matching rag, and you'll be golden.

    Although this thread (another forum) starts out strange, it should be required reading if you plan on carrying while riding:

    Had a HUGE accident with my 20minute old GI

    If you don't feel like reading, just make sure you secure the roscoe before getting on the freeway.

    I just got a Maxpedition Fat Boy for riding and working out. The standard size swallows even my CZ. I like it because I can carry it diagonally over my shoulder. No belt needed.

    Plus, it looks more manly and tacticool than a "fanny" pack!

    I carry IWB on my bike. Shoulder holster if I'm wearing my one piece suit, but I only do that for canyon rides. I ride a sportbike, and I haven't found it uncomfortable. If it was, I'd probably go with a tankbag, but then it wouldn't be on my person, which I'm more uncomfortable with.

    I've looked at those for hiking. But, hmmm... it's "tackicool" but is it Harley cool? Maybe in black when wearing my leathers. Hmmm... must think about this. thx

    Have you checked out Coronado Leather? They make carry vests in a variety of styles, several fit the "biker" look. Plan to try one myself if I ever get my Sportster rebuilt....

    Another good feature, rather than locking up the fanny pack if you need to go into a "forbidden' area (kind of obvious if you're putting it away), you'd simply be putting your vest in the tour pack. Seems a bit more discrete.

    You know, I ride with an OWB Galco or a Kholster IWB for my XD.

    On the downside of that, I ride in a lot of gear: Full face helmet and body armor coat, long pants and heavy boots. In my jacket the OWB conceals just fine.

    Then again, on my Shadow Sabre ain't nobody lookin' my way and ogling my amazing ride 'neither! :)

    Well, it's Yamaha cool at least!

    I bet it would look pretty darn Harleycool with that sew on logo patch! (in the black, of course)

    Oh, BTW, in case you didn't notice, the CW compartment is set up for a velcro positioning loop if needed at about another 10 bucks. My gun sits perfectly without it, but as they say, your milage may vary..

    Fanny pack and Harley should never be mentioned in the same sentence.
    It would be like putting the Village People onstage with Willie Nelson.

    You owe it to yourself to check out Fox Creek Leather, the best danged leather I have found for motorcycles, hands down. Their jackets and vests have an internal pocket for highly accessible yet highly concealed carry. Check it out at Fox Creek Leather - Motorcycle Jackets, Chaps, Motorcycle Vests, & Gear

    I wear one of these sometimes when I ride my sportster and have to carry stuff.

    It's one of mountainsmith's lumbar series daypacks.
    You can wear it as a fanny type pack or buy the shoulder straps for it and wear it as a backpack.

    Someone going to notice a fanny pack on someone riding a motorcycle ? ? ? Not likely !!!

    I carry IWB, leather vest made for gun carry, a CC shirt, and fanny pack. All are comfortable.
