    I have been UOC around colorado springs for a couple weeks now. i have read over all past threads and have yet to read anything regarding open carry on motorcycles.. i have been open carrying on my motorcycle for the past week now but should probably know the laws a little bit more.. i live in california but i live in colorado in the summer. so i am very aware of California law but not so much colorado law..

    You're good to go, it's the same as OCing anywhere else. Since your bike is a motor vehicle, you can even conceal while you're riding if you want. Handy if you're going to ride through Denver, which is CC only.

    What do you ride?

    Nope -- none at all. I don't think anyone carries unloaded around here...

    Apparently long guns (including shotguns) can't be chambered in a vehicle, although pistols can. Learned about this in a Hunter Safety course. Pretty confusing, though, so still not entirely clear.

    Only in Denver city/county or Denver owned property (i.e. Denver mountain parks)

    Open carry is illegal in Denver -- there's no permit that allows it.

    can i open carry a gun within 1000 ft of a school on a motorcycle since it technically my vehicle? or does it still need to be locked in a case within 1k feet of a K-12?

    That would be a federal issue. Colorado doesn't have a 1000-foot restriction. In fact, you can have a gun on school property as long as it's "in a compartment" in your locked vehicle. I don't know how that would apply to a motorcycle.

    Well damn, if it's in a locked container invisible from sight, then it's not really an issue, is it?

    This sounds like a Division of Wildlife rule pertaining to hunting only. Does anyone have a reference for this from the C.R.S.?

    It is unlawful for any person, except a person authorized by law or by the division, to possess or have under his control any firearm, other than a pistol or revolver, in or on any motor vehicle unless the chamber of such firearm is unloaded. Any person in possession or in control of a rifle or shotgun in a motor vehicle shall allow any peace officer, as defined in section 33-1-102 (32), who is empowered and acting under the authority granted in section 33-6-101 to enforce articles 1 to 6 of this title to inspect the chamber of any rifle or shotgun in the motor vehicle. For the purposes of this section, a "muzzle-loader" shall be considered unloaded if it is not primed, and, for such purpose, "primed" means having a percussion cap on the nipple or flint in the striker and powder in the flash pan. Any person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine of fifty dollars and an assessment of fifteen license suspension points.

    If that bike was mine, I would have another gun on the left side too.
