Think Mesh.

I ride on base for work. They require a "Bright colored" over garment (they can be pricks about it too.) Doesn't matter if it's 40 degrees or 105 degrees, you gotta play the game. I have a First Gear Mesh jacket in ridiculously bright yellow. Plenty of pockets to carry a snubbie & a couple reloads. Admittedly, it does take some getting used to.
Bonus: Ray Charles could spot this jacket in traffic. I don't get cut off nearly as much as I used to.

I haven't carried on my bike yet because according to the Indiana BMV, carrying a firearm while operating a motorcycle is prohibited.

Go to the forum "INGunOwners", a LEO gives advise on how to carry on a motorcycle. I think you have been given bad info about CCWs and cycles.

No sir, no bad info. I read it with my own eyeballs when studying for my motorcycle endorsement last year. Maybe it's and old law that isn't really enforced anymore or maybe they didn't update the study guide if and when the law changed. I'm already a member of INGO,......same name.

I'm thinking that maybe "they're " thinking that if a rider has an accident and is hurt, knocked out or worse, then there is a potential unsecured handgun laying around up for grabs. But still, it's no different than if somebody rolls a vehichle and the gun goes flying out the window. Seems like an unfair prejudice against bikers. I had no idea that so many folks were riding and armed.
========================
Update: I have spent a considerable amount of time today on the Indiana government website regarding Motor Vehicles and firearms regulations. I can find no mention in regulations regarding motorcycles and firearms other than carrying firearms in or on "off road vehicles", and then it stipulates in subsection 9 that it doesn't apply to anybody that has a valid carry permit. It could be that I was reading an old driver manual. My current DL license was issued in September 2011 and that is when I remember reading about carrying firearms on motorcycles. I just picked up a new driver's manual yesterday since I am reading up to get my chauffeur's license, and there is no mention of motorcycles and carrying in it as well. I typically carry with the Crossbreed Supertuck,but looks like my shoulder holster will be getting a little more use now.

I carry either a CZ P07 9mm or a XD Sub Compact in a Gould and Goodrich belt holster.

I understand about losing the firearm, but if you have a licence to carry a handgun what would it matter if your on a motorcycle? I guess each state is different.
