    I did the obligatory search and really found nothing.

    For those of you that carry while riding what is your preferred set-up...

    Definitely a nice rig. Can the weapon be positioned vertical instead of horizontal?

    I guess there are many options depending on what you carry.

    Usually mine is appendix carry and I ride with jacket, gloves, and helmet.

    Sometimes it's a maxpedition bag kept in top box.

    Other times it is a KelTec in front pocket.

    G26, ATGATT, Goldwing and KLR650.

    I usually have a tank bag on the KLR but not on the Goldwing (covered in Tupperware and no place to put it).

    Mine carry's horizontal. There are other Galco rigs that carry vertical.

    PF9 or LCP in right breast pocket (left handed) of my jacket. I have several jackets from summer mesh to winter insulated and all have a perfect size pocket. Legal with a CWP in SC. No hard luggage on my bike and carrying in a tank bag is by definition not legal as it's not permenantly attached to the vehicle. No problem to transport unloaded firearm in a tank bag. Be sure to check your State laws.

    Typically I carry my handguns while riding a motorcycle the same way I carry when riding in a car, walking, etc. Why would I change my carry method just because I'm riding a bike? I'm going to be getting off of it at some point, right?

    The one concession I've made to riding as far as carry method options, though, is that I've had the inside zippered breast pocket of my old leather riding jacket replaced with one made of leather ... and the last couple of new leather vests I had made I ordered with the "holster pocket" option offered by a local leather shop who still makes custom riding leather. Might as well make carrying one of my J-frames a bit handier, for those times I'm not carrying another type of handgun. ;)

    I spend a lot of time walking around one or another of the beach towns when I ride over the hill, and I want to be able to remain armed in the same manner(s) I use when walking around any other place once I'm off the bike.

    I have always rode on the street. Years ago I was having the fork seals replaced on a Honda Sabre. I had a meeting to go to. The mechanic working on my bike thee me the key to his KLR 650. I had quite a bit of fun on that bike.

    :supergrin:

    Just about the same as when riding in a car or walking except I place the holster mear the 3:30 position to make the gun/holster a little less visible in case my vest comes open.
    G-27 or Kimber Ultra CDPII in an IWB holster and /or a Kel-Tec .32 in a pocket holster.

    ATGATT - full face HJC helmet, perforated leather jacket with S&W 340PD in right outside pocket on a '91 Kawasaki 750 Vulcan while in Florida. While in NY ATGATT on a Honda 750 Shadow ACE except no friggin' gun 'cause I'm not a NY resident. In AZ ATGATT with the S&W 340PD but this time NO BIKE 'cause I haven't got a trailer to take one of the bikes and I'm usually with my wife and the dogs!
