Let me know how it works after you go for a ride. Looks like it might flop quite a bit. Would especially be interested in how it handles the contents after a fall.

Thanks much!

In a fall I doubt it would offer much for protection.
Great news. I guess it's time to troll eBay and see if I can come up with something.

I like the rear mount idea WAY more than the handlebar mounts. To easy to hit branches. In addition, if mounted to the upper frame , I'd imagine the rider weight would soften the impact of bumps and pot holes getting to the rifle, more so than if it were mounted on the forks. If on the forks, I'd be worried about scope holding zero.

I'm going to work on making a rear mount setup for my XL600 that will accept a std gun case, modified to mount on the bike, and lockable.

I have been fighting problem of security and protection Versus scabbard idea. I have figured ways to carry a AR15,10/22 and 12ga. They all required to be in pieces, once you have gotten to your hunting spot( varmits in my case) you have to take your gun apart.

You can get a cable lock, or something that goes through the action of the rifle/shotgun that might deter thieves.

Many years ago a friend of mine used a Kolpin attached to the front of his KLR600 (yes they were 600's before they were 650's) for a trip to Alaska, I think he hauled a shotgun for protection!!!! from what I dunno.
I see you have several reply's about the Kolpin, For what it's worth.

scabbard idea is good, i just don't like the fact I have to advertise. I want to ride and hunt varmits out in the high plains here in oregon. A motorcycle is the most efficent way to do it( considering summer gas prices). I wish the pic offered earily in the thread worked I'm intrested in how it looks and fits on the bike.

The Kolpin gun boot is on sale at wallyland
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=4630449

I used one a bunch on a snowmachine, hunting in Northwest AK. Protected my fancy .375 scoped Winchester model 70 very well. Easy to use an keeps the rifle clean and dry.

I found that when I ratchet-strapped my .22LR case to my backrest, cars gave me a much wider birth.

Mind you I'm now looking at ATV stuff to mount it more or less vertically, so its not so wide.

I LIKE this latest option.

I used about the same setup as was on the Trail90 years ago on my Honda65, saddle scabbard with a leveer action Winchester.
Wish I still had both of 'em. And I didn't get tailgated then like I do now even though the bikes ( and I ) are both much larger.
