    Motorcycle + gun + resturant?

    Anyone have any ideas on where to put handgun when you go to a restaurant that serves alcohol when riding a motorcycle? I'm getting a street bike in another week or 2 and trying see options. Is there like a gun safe for a motorcycle or anything to secure gun to while eating?

    A buddy of mine bolted a small, lockable, single pistol hard case into one of his saddlebags. It seems to work pretty well.

    Or just buy a full sized touring bike with a lockable trunk...

    I ride a sportbike also and the only space you can fit a small gun would be under the rearseat, but i wouldn't do that. These bikes attract a lot of attention and the last thing I would want is for someone to see me putting my handgun in there and believe me they are not that hard to break into or steal!!! Just my own .02 sorry not trying to offend you.

    I feel your pain. I OC when I ride, and have a cruiser with lockable saddle bags. Ain't always comfortable disarming out in public parking lots where someone can see where you put it.

    Good idea Blk97F150. The lockbox bolted to the saddle bag frame is something I must look into.

    I agree with "muccione". The best solution to your dilemma is to only go to restaurants that don't serve alcohol whole on your bike.

    And EVERY time you do go out to eat, call your Representative, and let them know how much a pain it is for you and your family to have to limit your choices of eateries because of NC's silly "restaurant ban".

    Be sure to remind them that according to the NC DOJ's own statistics, the MAJORITY of firearms that are reported stolen in NC are stolen from vehicles--and that the law in NC that prohibits carry in restaurants that serve alcohol is essentially putting DOZENS of guns into the hands of criminals every year, because law-abiding gun owners have to leave their legally-owned and lawfully-carried firearms in their vehicles per the law...

    Oh, and BTW, that super-cool motorcycle seat is made by "Wicked Cactus Leather" out of El Paso TX... Their website is sort of ugly, but their leather work looks really spiffy...

    Sometimes it is hard to plan spur of the moment situations. The only remedy I've had was to cary one of those tiny lock boxes in my bag so I can lock my firearm in a friends car while we ate. guess that will be the best option since I don't have saddle bags. I hope they change this law
