there has to be some relaxation with some of you guys when it comes to motorcycles.
STORAGE ON A MOTORCYCLE:
on some motorcycles, a BACKPACK IS THE ONLY STORAGE. therefore the backpack is the "trunk".
also i doubt that many of you on here are flexible enough to reach the backpack, unzip it, reach the case inside the backpack, unzip it, grab the gun, grab a magazine and load the gun. ALL WHILE STILL HOLDING ONTO THE HANDLEBARS.
i highly doubt it. no offense, but if you have never ridden a motorcycle before, then i'm going to say ease up just a little bit. it's a bit different then a car. that's where it's going to come down to "interpretation of the law", and in this specific case, i personally would be willing to fight that a BACKPACK is out of reach. but they are by all means more than welcome to show me how THEY would store and carry a gun on said bike if they can think of a better way.
otherwise, some sportbikes have enough room under the seat to lock up a gun in a soft case, and once again while it is within arms reach, it is OUT OF REACH. because to be able to get under the seat, you need the key. so to get the gun you would have to:
turn off the bike, remove the key from ignition, stand up on the bike, unlock the seat with the key, remove the seat, remove the case and unzip it, remove the gun, grab the magazine, put the case back, reinstall the seat, sit back on the bike place the key back in the ignition and restart the bike. there is no way that you can do that unless the bike is parked. that's just not going to happen while moving.
and on cruisers with saddle bags/trunks.............well the saddlebags or trunk are going to be as far as you can get them.
hope that helps.
