    i agree and was not trying to be flippant, sorry if it came across that way. As I said, everything involves some type of compromise and securing a firearm is no different.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Put about 20 rounds of duct tape on it and it will never move from that spot.

    I would have a problem with placing responsibility on the person who had his property stolen. Especially if that property was stolen as a direct result of a person following the laws that caused him to leave it where it could be easily taken.

    We'll just have to disagree. As you said, on cars it's just as applicable. I know a thief we had who stole cars a lot, and he can open your door with no key, faster than you could with your key. One person locked their keys in their car and no one could seem to break into the car. So, I went and borrowed him out of the jail (with the judge's permission) and asked him to do it. He walked up (wire and small screw driver) and had it open faster than if we had the key.

    But, the motion alarm will go off if you even rest your finger on my bike, so I'm alerted and it attracts attention to keep them from going any further. Also, it's better to me than being totally unarmed ..... which isn't going to happen.

    Any Gun can be stolen you have to do the best you can to secure it.

    I had a 2007 Cbr 600rr, and at that time I had a kel tec p32 as one of my guns. I would carry that on my persons while riding when I got to my destination I locked it underneath the rear seat fit perfectly and most people won't be paying attention to you while you "play" with your bike and won't know there's a pistol in there.

    Normally I wouldn't, but I'm parked right beside the sales center and it's a gated community. We have had some problems with vandalism, but that was a resident's son tearing up another resident's house for fun. I'm trying to get into law enforcement, and it would haunt me for ever if my gun ended up in some punk's hands.

    EDIT: I am reconsidering the bike. Down here in the lightning capitol of the world, it's a little impractical as a daily use vehicle, and I didn't think about somebody being able to just load the bike into a truck and drive off with it.

    Walther PPS

    I carried concealed for 8 years in my previous job. No one was the wiser and there was no express policy against carrying at work. I am starting a new job soon where carrying concealed would violate policy and cost me my job. My answer as a regular M/C rider is to carry my Walther PPS. I will lock it to the frame inside a car safe inside my soft top bag. While the PPS isn't my ideal or preferred EDC, it has the removable "Key" in the grip that renders the gun unusable without the key installed. I would hate to have it stolen, but at least I can take comfort in knowing that it's an expensive paperweight as long as I remove the key before headed into work. I can't see a better solution, but I'm not about to ask my new employer if they provide secure lockup for personal firearms.

    I would have to advise against it. After working many Bike Weeks in Daytona on the Anti-Theft Task Force I saw waaay too many bikes get stolen! What good is a locked compartment if they steal the whole bike? One year I think it was 95', we had 147 bikes stolen in ONE week! YMMV.

    My bike does not have any hard lockable storage containers or anywhere to really fit a gun. 99% of the time when I ride I will also stop some place that is prohibited by law, mainly restaurants. So I just don't carry when I ride.
