    Maybe this has been answered in the past, but I'm new to the site and didn't see it listed recently. Is it, or is it not, legal to OC while on a motorcycle without a CCDW license. The statute states: KRS 527.020- "A deadly weapon shall not be deemed concealed on or about the person if it is located in a glove compartment, regularly installed in a motor vehicle by its manufacturer regardless of whether said compartment is locked, unlocked, or does not have a locking mechanism."

    Now, I know that you can only carry a gun in the glove box while in a car, unless you have a CCDW. But where does that leave motorcyclist, since a motorcycle doesn't havea "glove compartment".

    I am planning on obtaining my CCDW soon, but just wanted to know if I have to leave my gun at home untill then.

    Open carry is not illegal anywhere in KY UNLESS it's a federal building.

    I open carried on my motorcyle on the way to Memphis. I usuallyconceal an OWB holster under my jacket when riding, but there was a HUGE traffic jam on the freeway in hot weather, so I stored my jacket, but kept my right handed Bianchi with Taurus PT 145 while slowly rolling down the "fast" lane. Many people had to notice durring that hour of stop and go freeway travel. Honestly, it felt pretty good to be riding while OCing.
