I know the Florida rules for having a weapon in the vehicle (in zippered/latched case,if you don't have CCW,etc.) but what about on a motorcycle??!?? say I had my AR in a soft-case slung around my chest/back or on the bike somewhere,would it be legal? I mean,I am technically "in" a vehicle,and the weapon is in a case,so one would think so right? right? THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think it would be a big deal because its in a case and its visible. Might want to talk with some friendly cops on their knowledge. But it looks fine, roll easy.

If you wear leathers and ride a Harley, people are usually scared of you, unless you have the same face as Bill Gates.

nope.I'll be riding a silver,half-faired Suzuki SV.If you life in FL,and see this bike with a buy wearing a bomber jacket,with BOBLBEE backpack,that's me.Try not to say "hi" as you may distract me,and end up killing me. D'oh Seriously,I'm no show-off.I'd rather ride reserved,then peel and get road rash.

Best way to go, wheelies give you scars most times. Will try not to distract you, but the blonde girl next to me in my truck might hurt your neck[:D]

In just about any state it would be ok to do that. So long as there no intent to harm someone it is legal. I do sometimes here in MD. I'll strap two cased AR15s to the side and ride to the range. Never once had any problems. One time I drove about 200 miles round trip to south of Baltimore for a group rifle shoot and even after fully expecting to get pulled over at least once it never happend. This is MD after all not it's not real gun friendly. Nobody gave me a second look. Having it over your shoulder could get you hurt if you lay it down. Better off having it tied down somewhere instead.

Back in '80 I bought an American 180, the 177 round .22 rifle with the drum on top. Bungee'd the sucker, without a case, unloaded, across the seat of the Triumph Bonnie and rode about 15 miles across town to the old Trail Glades range to wring it out. I can't say if that was legal then...maybe now I worry more about that, and I sure can't say for sure if it would be legal now, but you can believe NO ONE BUT NO ONE even came close to cutting me off in traffic THAT day. Seriously, do some written research on the law first and stay safe.
