This past weekend I carried for the first time while riding my motorcycle. I simply wore a shoulder holster under my riding jacket with my trusted 1911. The access might not be super fast but when first gear redlines at 76mph, it may not have to be.
I carry a shoulder rig when wearing a jacket on my scoot, but during the warm times (like right now its 83 and im heading out for a ride) I just wear it in a ITP holster under an untucked cut off shirt under my colors (for you non-motorcycle folks the vest with club colors on the back). I will say, it I cant reach it immediatly (ie under a coat) it goes into a shoulder rig. I needed it once and it was burried under layers of colors and heavy coat. Ever seen a Emerson CQC-7 stuck in the head of a mad rotty? (no I didnt pull over, I was stuck in traffic and couldnt go anywhere and my daughter was on the back so I had to do something) Damm that sucked. So I congradulate you for the sharp idea of the shoulder rig.
ohhhhhhhh......I can remember when I owned a Sportster........a guy in a Corvette came up behind me, showing off to his babe friend...........he rode my butt, then backed off, and rode up to the fender several times..laffing hard..... seeing I had a "suicide throttle" one that stays open without the return spring.. I decided to show him the business end of a 2 1/2 Smith 66.........at which time......the "air brakes" suddenly engaged on the Vette.........I then placed the weapon back in it's shoulder holster and continued with my ride.......Funny how an "equalizer" makes all the difference..
Hah. My cruiser wont see that downhill, w/ a good tailwind in 5th gear.
When on the road, I always greet other riders and compliment their bikes. One time a guy on a bullet bike was suprised I compliemented his bike. Making small talk, he then asked me how fast my bike goes, "Fast enough to put a smile on my face" along w/ a thumbs up. We both laughed.
