    I've done a lot of track miles and schools, and taught motorcycle safety. When I am carrying on a bike, I don't ride at speeds I might otherwise ride at. Not out of fear of crashing, but because I know there is a good possibility I will be dealing with LEO's, and doing warp speed with a concealed handgun probably wouldn't make them happy to deal with me.
    As to stopping at bars, I never drink and ride. I never understood why anyone would want to impair themselves and get on a motorcycle. That's about a 50% crash statistic. For that matter, I usually don't ride with people who need to stop at bars. I know from experience, that I'm the one who will have to deal with the aftermath of their choices.

    Stopping for a beer at a bar is a Harley thang, you wouldn't understand.

    I promise never to ride my Harley into a bar while armed.

    I didn't admit a thing. I stick my gun under the saddle of my bike and lock it when I can't carry it once I get to my destination. Theres a Florida law that protects that action. Stop looking for an argument, you're not impressing anyone by being a jerk on the internet in an otherwise peaceful thread.

    Lordy, I hope not. You're supposed to stop in a parking space and then walk in!

    I've stopped for beer on every bike I've ridden. BMW, Suzuki etc. I never blamed the bike I was riding.

    I have no respect for a biker getting on a bike after drinking.

    Personally, I think your decision to drink and ride is much harder to defend than his decision to carry and ride.

    Your justification that you might go down and, if that happens, the gun might cause additional injury is tenuous...at best.

    You're much more likely to go down after drinking, even one beer, every time you do it. I will agree that not carrying while riding is a good idea if you're gonna drink and ride...:upeyes:

    The fact that you have laid a bike down and still choose to drink and ride undermines your judgment in every other thread, IMO.

    Bikes and alcohol go together about as well as bikes and ice.

    That sucks. I've got a GSA and have had zero issues out of it. I do my own maintenance though...:wavey:

    I respect that.

    When I say a beer, it is a beer. I can't tell you when I had my last hangover.
    And, in 45 years of riding I have been down exactly...once.

    NOW:

    How do you think John Rambo is getting home after leaving the Pegasus lounge and the titty bar he talked about after a night of drinking (with his gun)?
    (just food for thought...)
    Maybe some of your rightousness is misplaced.

    fnfalman hates Harleys. He apparently thinks that was some anti-Harley remark, even if I can't figure out why.

    Carrying it either in or under a tactical vest works well.:wavey:

    No righteousness here.

    Just giving my opinion.

    FYI...you're the one talking about drinking.

    When I went to titty bars in my younger days, I didn't drink.

    Not what I wanted to spend my money on...:tongueout:

    Not hate, just simple disdain for inferior motorcycles and their owners.

    I ride a Harley and have for over 30 years. You have disdain for me simply because I ride a Harley Davidson?? You have never met me, you don't know me and we have never talked.


    I find your comment small-minded and disgusting. Perhaps you think others should bow down to you as apparently you are from some superior race of beings.
