Sorry @Dawn I want to throw a little monkey wrench in this one.
You already know I ride a Motorcycle.
So the way I understand it is as long as I am straddling the bike I am in the vehicle.
What if I can not reach my gun safe I have secured on the bike from that position?
Next, if I can reach it while straddling the bike at a gas station and pull out my loaded weapon from my shoulder rig to lock it in the gun safe am I now brandishing the weapon?
I solved this issue in my bike travels by avoiding the state whenever possible and to make sure I do not have to stop for anything while I am in the state on the bike.
I missed the Illinois portion of my route 66 trip for this very reason. I also only went as far as Las Vegas ) I have friends and family there) because of California’s gun laws.
Now the big monkey wrench. We broke down on the trip back (just outside of Flagstaff). I had o leave the bike there for repairs (long story) and fly back to Wisconsin. I had a few handguns with me I was not going to be able to take on a plane (bus travel at this point was not an option. I was lucky enough to know some people who had moved to that area from Wisconsin (my daughters best friend and her mother from school). I was able to leave the firearms with them until I could go back and pick them up.
My point is this, if you are making a long trip in any vehicle think about worst case scenarios if you were to break down. What would you have to do to safeguard your weapons if you had no choice but to leave them someplace that was not home?
