carrying a FireArm on a bike w/o CHL?

i know we had a new round of laws passed pertaining to vehicles and firearms. I was wondering if its possible to carry a firearm located on the bike (not your person) or would this be considered concealed carry? does a bike count as a vehicle in the courts eyes?

I've been wondering that as well.
I mean a bike is a legal vehicle, so if it's in a tank/saddle bag that should be the same as carrying concealed in your car right?

I know the old law said it could not be "on or about your person" which was defined as not inside the passenger compartment. The new law as I understand says "concealed".
So, how does that work on a bike?

As long as it's concealed on the bike somewhere I don't see the problem. But I would hope you are leaving your house just to return to your house because if you stop somewhere I would realllly suggest not leaving it on the bike.

Don't do it...if you REALLY need to have a gun for whatever reason make it a sawed off shotgun(just make sure it meets legal length req's). But if I remember correctly, you're not even 18...so carry pepper spray.

It's so easy to get a CHL I don't understand why more folks don't do it.

It doesn't make sense IMO to carry on a bike. In a car, you can legally have it in the passenger compartment and get to it in case you require it. You still have a semi secure method of locking it up when you park and leave the car.

I would never leave my weapon on my bike, even if I had lockable hard bags...and if you don't have a CHL, you can't legally take the weapon with you if you get to your destination. And if it is in the locked saddle bags, well, you can't get to it efficiently enough.

If you're just going to the range, that's a different issue.

That's what I'm thinking...what's the point if I have to "search" for my gun? It's either on me (within short reach of my hand) or not at all.

you can carry on your bike if concealed. you can carry on your persons on the bike if completly concealed. no gray area's there if they see it you get busted. well ticketed anyway. depends. i have already been faced with tis issue.

Good question... I agree w/ getting the CHL though. You can always carry it on you (with a few exceptions) so you'll never be without when you actually need it.

If you get caught with it and the cop doesn't buy it and go down, it is a felony. It will likely be the last one you own.

My guess is that being on a bike is not the same as driving a car. On a bike, it is on your person be it in a tank bag, etc...


Best bet is to take the class, get the CHL and your covered!

Just my $0.02
