    Thumbs up How do I lock & hide a handgun on motorcycle?

    [I carry concealed or open depending where I'm going that day. I could use some ideas how and where to hide and lock the pistol on a 650 V Star Yamaha custom. I cannot carry gun into the plant where I work for eight hours. Company rules.
    My thoughts are to use small steel safe inside saddle bags bolted or cable bolted to the bikes frame. Any ideas?
    Can't go to a different job or company at my age and the job market, been at this hole in the wall for twelve years and will be here for a few more years.

    Your idea sounds like it would work. Do you have a gated parking lot?

    My Autosafe by Sentry has successfully withstood 2 attempts to break into it. It comes with a steel cable as you describe. I'm sure it would do the trick.

    The hardware is the same, but the software is vastly different.

    I use a small nano vault (combo model). The cable can be attached or secured around something solid on the frame and is long enough to stash in the saddlebag. It will prevent a quick "grab", but I'm sure given enough time.... or the right tools, it can be compromised. Most thieves want to be there and gone QUICK. The time it would take to breach the case or cut the cable would likely attract too much attention.

    I would get one of the small safes with a cable lock. I use one in my semi to store my Passport, a little cash and credit card, just in case I lose my wallet on the road.

    Since you have saddle bags, and the cable is small, I don't think anyone would even notice the black cable next to your saddle bags.

    As long as you don't let anyone know your carrying and leaving your gun with your bike, it should work out fine.

    Agree with the comments on the cable lock set up. I would also suggest if the parking lot at work has security to get friendly with the guards and park as close as you can to the guardshack and their view. Not a guarentee but better than nothing.

    ^^Along with the safe suggestions and what Ice said, make sure you park in well lit (if you work nights), and well visible location, either to the security shack or wherever the most human traffic is. Most thieves won't walk up to a motorcycle with a pair of bolt cutters and try and steal a safe when there are people walking by watching him. One thing you learn quickly working in security or LE is that 90% of crime is a crime of opportunity. Your best bet is to not give that opportunistic thief a reason to even look at your bike.

    The only thing I have to add is if you can cable the safe to the frame without it being visible ,like maybe cutting a small hole in the inside of the bag, I'd do that.

    I'm with Treo on the hole on the inside of the saddle bag. Totally out of sight, and not a temptation.
    I am old and slow, BUT dead on with my aim!!

    I'm really surprised that there isn't a product specifically designed for this fit... say, a cable lock on a trigger lock? Or a holster with lockable retention that bolts aomewhere to the frame? C'mon, I could do this all day; where are the vendors? :-)
