    That’s ok, it was just a reverse-click-bait thread title.

    Ride HD Ultra Classic- Springfield xds 3.3" 45acp, Galco Sto&Go IWB @ 4-5 o'clock at all times unless in the shower or bed. Bounced off the passenger side of a pickup at 25mph that turned left in front of me right in front of a cop. We were both impressed that the gun was in the holster when he helped me up. Yes I am a helmet guy. Bike totaled- now we have the red one my wife wanted.

    Glock 19 Crossbreed IWB holster at 4:30 like normal. I ride with fingerless gloves so I don't worry about the shooting with gloves on.

    Extra credit for anyone who tells me if they have practiced drawing and firing with their motorcycle gloves on. It takes a LOOOONG time for me to take my riding gloves off, it does not make sense to incorporate "remove glove from shooting hand" into my emergency draw.
    Unless you are in a Hollywood movie, this maneuver makes no sense. You are FAR BATTER OFF using your speed and agility to escape. It seems to me you will have a hard time defending your actions if you are shooting on the run as you describe.

    Shit, I did it too. Now i feel bad.
    Now I'll have to take my daughters Honda 450 for a spin.

    When It gets a new back tire and gets inspected I will carry a compact Glock as I always have. 4 oclock IWB.
    I feel better now that i at least have a bike parked in my driveway.


    (am I good or marginally OK posting this or do I need to erase any history of having even looked here? If not, don't anyone quote me or I'll be locked in as an ass for not obeying the rules.)

My purse with all the accessories gets thrown in the tail box so when I take my helmet off I can freshen up and look my best.

    I've watched all of Paul Harrell's videos and the one on the motorcycle shows what I say about shooting accurately even going slowly to be true. It is very difficult to operate a motorcycle and shoot accurately so it's better to use the mobility advantage of the motorcycle to escape an attack rather than use a firearm while moving in in my opinion. In a last ditch defense position it may be better to use the former US Cavalry tactic of laying the steed down on the ground and shoot from behind it as cover. I think escape is the best option though.
    I aint taking cover behind a tank of gas. You can. Not I.
