Gun mount on Kawasaki Versys
I'm planning on doing a couple different mounting situations with my side arm and my AR-15. So far this is what I've come up with. One handle bar mount and then I'm thinking of mounting this rifle case to the saddle bag mounts that came on my bike if I can figure out a way to make it beyond toyt like a tigah. I'd definitely prefer not to carry the rifle on my back and sometimes I may not want the side arm in my jacket or on my hip.

For you safety nazi's out there yes I know guns are "dangerous"...thanks. Ok so now that we have that covered, Can someone please provide pics of their set up so I can get some ideas or feedback on the accessories. I'd love to see what is out there!

ATV style hard case for the AR, cross draw chest rig for the handgun.
Thanks for the insight, pics please? Is this what you run?

Are you scared to die? Might want to give up riding then.

In 300,000 miles of riding, and 55 years on this earth, I have never been in a situation where a gun was needed. Doesn't do you much good if it is not on your person anyway.

I have observed many personalities that carry.
1. Those that you would never know it. They are highly trained so they are never without.
2. Those that are scared. They are a danger to everyone around them.
3. Those who become brave. Thinking that they don't have to avoid the neighborhoods and locations mostknow to avoid.
4. Those that have something to protect. Usually illegal goods.
5. Those preparing for the zombie apocalypse.

Which one are you? ;)

the guy asked a question about equipment, your answer was a sermon.

what he does is his business, what you do is yours.

I was just messing with him because of his bike build. Some people take life to seriously. Didn't you see the wink at the end?

Some people watch to many movies, and others don't know the mathematical odds associated with certain risks.

Agreed they do. So it's cool if I say you sound like an anti gun nut as long as I put one of these -> ;) at the end ;)
hehe just teasing man. I expect people to get there panties in a bit of a bunch and express their anti gun opinions anytime I mention it so it's cool. I'm used to it. To each is own. I'll never give reasons to a person for deciding not to carry as to why they should but I'll still protect them if I had to. Arizona's wilderness has some pretty mean creatures that roam the night!

No problem. Where I live in the country, we have the luxury of shooting from our back porch.
One of my son's qualified to participate in one of the statewide target competitions for yourh.
People who carry out of fear do scare the crap out of me. One buddy almost got shot by his wife when he came home early from a Road trip and forgot to call her first. Fortunately, in her fear she froze up.

Carry on.

Wow, that's fricken terrifying!

anyways, I like the cross draw setup. That way it is always with you, in case you get separated from the bike.

Could be Another "We Got A Winner Thread"

1.....is the best reason IMO. Why carry a tire plug kit and air compressor? So that you are prepared just in case you need it.
Yes I hear you, my best friend in Canada, I will keep the details short, went down the wrong path early in life, had a BSA 650 at 16 years old, was over 6 ft tall, got involved in a , I will call it a motorcycle club. He was in a apartment, one night his brother , who had a key, figured it was better to crash at his older brothers place rather than drive the 30 miles home in blowing snow. Well he entered the apartment around midnight, came face to face with a 12 gauge pump action sawed off shotgun, luckily his older brother recognized him.

So I have never heard of a compressor or tire plugger killing anyone accidentally or on purpose. Need is a loose term, you confront a grizzly, pepper spray may just piss him off, unless you speak grizzly chances are you aren't going to be able to talk your way out of that situation, that is when you NEED something really big and hope your shaking and aim can be coordinated before buddy Grizz takes his shot.

Hahaha ya crazy man. Ugh snow. So happy I don't have to deal with that anymore unless I want to. Haven't shoveled in 4 years. Getting ready to head out in a ride in a bit :p I feel your cabin fever pain though. Been there for most my life.

Latest Ride Ever

My last Ride was November 29, the warmest it has ever been , with no snow. Found one place 150 KM North of me with snow in the ditch, was a high of 14'C that day.
