    I have had the same trouble, trying to find something comfortable while rideing, truth is very little is comfortable while rideing the bike small of backs out, even is it stayed covered it would print to much, IWB is tough to get to, I used a vertical Galco for a while, but it proved to be a pain, you didn't say what Glock is it, untill I come up with something better my G-27 or G-36 goes in my pocket, and I have Taurus PT-738 on my ankle, all the time when on bike, and my much better half also keeps a 738 on her ankle and a 9mm in back holster

    It depends. If you're riding a sport type bike where you are bending foward, you may expose a hip carry type holster, especially if your jacket or shirt doesn't pull down tightly enough to be held in place in the wind. If you are riding a cruiser or Harley type bike, that may not be a problem. I have ridden both in the past. In both cases, I carried a pistol or revolver in my jacket pocket or in a fanny pack. Another method, was to have a small tank bag, that you could place the gun in a zipper or velcro pocket. On my Harley, I had a leather bag mounted just behind the windsheild that held my pistol and cell phone. The last bike I had, I carried 2 Glock 26's, one in each of the jacket pockets, so I could access a pistol with each hand and still operate the throttle or clutch if I was sitting still or moving. May or may not have been the best way, but I felt comfortable carrying that way. Either way, ride safe.

    They are much harder to conceal than one might think.

    OK, I have trouble concealing full-size touring cycles. Is a 650 enough bike?

    You carry two 9mm's on a bike? Expecting an attack by blood thirsty savages?
    With a bike, one can get out of harms way in a hurry. However, one is not in protected by glass and steel as in truck, or car. Any data, nationwide, how many motorcylists are mugged in a year?

    I ride a VTX1800, an XL1200 Sportster and an old XR600R dirt bike. I picked up a Cycle Leather vest with special inside pockets during my last visit to Sturgis. I typically carry a Walther PPS-40 and it fits nicely in the vest with no printing issues.

    Good Riding and Good Luck

    No, but I saw two incidents as a cop, where a couple of guys on Harleys and sportbikes were jumped by guys hanging at the curb at a stop light. They knocked one guy over and wrestled his bike away from him. Another was taken at knife point at his throat. Guess he decided not to try to drive off.

    There was also a time when I was riding down the interstate and had some idiots come up beside me in a pick up and kept telling me to pull over. When I didn't, they decided to start pushing me over to the shoulder. I stopped, because unless you are ahead of them or can slow down and make a u-turn, you can't compete collision wise with a vehicle. Only outrun or outmanuver if possible. They pulled slightly ahead and as they got out they were looking down the barrel. I held one of them at gun point, the other jumped in the truck and drove off. I used my cell phone to call back up. Seems these guys had been stealing bikes, by getting people to pull over and overpowering the rider or threatening his wife riding on the back and taking the bike leaving them on the shoulder. They had 3 stolen bikes in a garage.

    The reason I carry two, is so I have access with either hand to a gun, because a motorcycle will required at least one hand to accelerate or brake. If I'm rolling or stopped, I can access a gun on either side pocket.
