Gun Mount Mods on the Versys - Trigger Warning

Motorcycle Gun Mount Mods on the Kawasaki Versys because -

Used Ram Mounts handlebar mount for $40
Does not include holster
RAM Handlebar Rail Mount, Zinc Coated U-Bolt & Belt Clip Gun Cradle Unpackaged - RAM-B-149Z-GUN1U | RAM Mounts
RAM-B-149Z-GUN1U
This mount accommodates rails from 0.5" To 1.25" in diameter.


Weapons Wear Tactical Scabbard $68.95
Black Tactical Rifle Scabbard SLING Case for AR 15 + Pistol & Double Mag Pouch | eBay purchased from
weaponwear_inc on eBay


So I decided to do this mod primarily to be able to ride to the public outdoor shooting ranges in the remote Arizona desert. Now I'll be able to ride my V which is more fun instead of my truck which is a 2 wheel drive sport truck. I'll be able to get to more desolate areas that I may have not been able to or wanted to go to in my truck. The Side arm will serve two purposes, range trips and personal defence depending on the locations I'm in and around. The biggest reason would probably be cause I can because -


So far the locations I've mounted are temporary until I figure out exactly where I plan to mount everything. I'll be getting a new holster specifically for the Ram Mount and I'm looking into how I plan to lock down the AR. I'll share more pics later when everything is all settled in and the bike is put back together.

Joey - I suggest you give some thoughts to protecting your AR and Glock in the event of a "low-side" or "drop" on the right side (I KNOW how pricey they are...) - crash bars, etc.

VERY NICE!!! Biggest thing I like seeing is the ram mount. I honestly didn't know they made a sidearm mount... Sheesh. They make every-damn thing!

I, too, am a bit concerned about the firearms ability to come out unscathed, even in a slow fall.... Thinking about what you said and where you showed the AR mount point, I think a hard case might be your best bet there. That would allow you to drill through the hard case and put a bracket on both sides: Inside the case for stability (probably just a flat bar which would act as something of a washer for the two bolts), and a custom bracket on the outside that would attach the case to the bike in whatever location you choose. If you're a little handy, have a grinder and a couple of other tools, and the time... You could make a damn fine mount.

Thanks! Yea that ram mount is pretty badass. Great ideas. Yea I've been thinking of other options for the ar in the future but this will do for now. I'm sure I'll come up with other options down the road.
