    Depends on what state you are in.

    When I am in NV and AZ................. I put the HOG (.44 Mag) right out there in open view. (of course I still have the .45 and .22 Bug on back up = under cover =legal permit).

    Heck, in AZ, I have run my HD Motercycle with a Shotgun across the bars..................... looks (from LEO = respect), but no issues.

    @ OP = can you be more specific in your question.

    Depends on the type of plastic. Is a Glock frame worse than a metal frame? I have about half with plastic and they all are just fine with no problems.

    I carry with my glock 21 with a shoulder holster on my bikes. I have a 08 Suzuki GSXR-750 and a 2005 Suzuki SV1000s. The shoulder holster is nice for confort and it's secure if I ever go down. I know it won't be coming loose, but I'm sure my ribs might be hurting if the gun digs into the side of my chest if I do go down.

    I second the shoulder holster. Its my preferred method of carry. And if your going to be doing a lot of driving or riding its definatly the most comfortable way I've found to carry.
    Good gun control is hitting your target every time

    You pretty much summed it up I was just wondering how people carry on their bikes.

    Shoulder holster for me as well. I've found it's the best all-around option for comfort/access and not having to move the gun from a storage spot to on-body. I wear tight-fitting gear so anything on the waist is out.

    It all depends on what you wear, what you carry, and if you carry concealed or open. There are a lot of previous threads on this forum for you to read. Please do.
    You can't wear a belt holster inside a 'stich on a hot day, and exposing a shoulder rig at the lunch stop tends to freak out the sheeple.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    Shoulder holster in cooler weather, IWB cross-draw in summer.
    A wise man once said: "Bugout bag?..What's that? Is that all the junk you sidewalk commandos plan on humping when the SHTF...I'll grab a Nylon 66, a box of 22s and a poncho liner and in less than a week I will have all of your stuff and everything else that I need for the duration."
