    I also ride. You need a pistol license to carry on a bike but once you have the license, you areable to carry open or concealed.

    I have OCed on a bike, but not too often as the jacket I have tends to cover it. The few times I have, I have riden past Kitsap Co SO cars and no one has said a thing.

    Welcome Leo,

    I am very new here myself. I just found out about OC being legal after I asked Agent 47 about riding away from work with a pistol on his hip. My impression was you don't need a permit as long as the pistol is always visible, at the OC lunch today 2-3 people told me I could've OC'd even though I realized yesterday that my permit was expired. (it expired last march, I gotta pay more attention) But myreason to go to the show out in Monroe today was to see if I could find a holster with good retention toOC especially on a FXDWG. I found one and will use itto OC but itwill have to wait until the new permit comes since mycoat will cover the sidearm while I'm on the bike.

    You know where my nickname comes from... Happy birthday!

    Alan

    It was my understanding that a bike or motorcycle is still considered transportation and subject to the same laws as cars. So even though you are open carrying, you are still operating a vehicle.

    In either case your not likely to get stopped, because just having a weapon is not grounds to terry stop or pull over a vehicle.

    Keep your CC permit on you.

    I open carry on my motorcycle and have done so all over the state, put about ten thousand miles on it so far. All while open carrying and I have never been pulled over. Although a CPL is required to have a loaded gun in ( or on ) a vehicle you are not required to conceal it.

    Thanks for all the input and the warm welcome from everyone. Sounds like a lot of us ride bikes. Hope to meet with you all sometime. I could not make the gun show today but will be there Sunday. I am not hard to spot, Big Eagle Globe and Anchor patch on my back. Thanks again.
