    I had a pocket clip on my PF9. It was comfortable, and very concealed.

    Second, I have a Crossbreed, and love it... That being said, I will be ordering my next iwb from Theis holsters. Theis makes an almost identical holster to Crossbreed, but they are considerably cheaper. Also, there have been some recent posts regarding Crossbreed slipping in quality.

    I have a PF9 and use a IWB holster in the small of my back. In cooler weather i just put it the inner pocket of my riding jacket.

    There are leather vests that have concealed carry pockets inside available. I ride too and I think it would be very difficult to keep a handgun covered while out on the road. When I get my permit I am going to try the vest route, I usually wear one anyway.

    When riding I carry left handed. Usually a G36 open carry, although times I will conceal.

    It would have to be an extreme situation when I would actually shoot from my bike, moving or stopped, but I have trained that way. Shooting left handed gives me control of the front brakes and throttle. I don't need the clutch lever for stopping, starting or changing gears. I usually carry left side hip holster in the 8-9 o'clock position. Training included shooting with riding gloves and helmet.

    I can draw with my left hand from my right hand carry rig, normally. But trying to get it out when wearing tight leather and bent over the tank of a Ninja presents a challenge carrying left hand overcomes with ease. Although I normally carry right handed, I was born a lefty and shoot either hand without much difference.

    A few years back, I came up on a group of riders pulled off and searching the field just off the road. I joined them. Turns out one of the kids took a low side and his Glock came out of the holster. He was fine, his bike was fine, his Glock was fine, but it took a dozen riders about 30 minutes to finally find his Glock tucked under a cactus! There were a few scratches on the rider, the bike and the Glock, and he learned a lesson about holster retention. Just something you might want to consider, if you haven't already thought about it, when selecting your carry method.

    A friend carries in a Thesis IWB and has a Kydex holster mounted behind the wind screen for his sport bike, a Kydex holster mounted in the bag on his Harley.

    "...holster mounted in the bag on his Harley…"
    This is how I carried mine for years. Mounted on the back side of the right saddlebag.
