    I understand that not having trigger locks may possibly cause a delay from an officer that doesn't know the laws, but I believe that gun owners shouldn't use them. Our rights are being eroded continuously and complying with something which isn't a law, solely from the fear of getting hassled, will make it easier for the gun grabbers to make trigger laws during transport a requirement. Don't make it easy on those that want to curtail your rights.

    You are making the gun carry laws to complicated on yourself. You will feel just great if you see your record buck as you are getting off of your mod of transportation. I believe it will be classified at an ATV and in some zones there are time restrictions so check the zones you are in or are going threw.

    Put it in the case with no trigger lock, and bolt in. Unloaded of course. Lock case. Put key for lock on your motorbike keys so it’s always with you when you are on the bike. Legally, you don’t even need to lock the case, but I would do it anyway.

    Hint - Print out a copy of the RCMP Brochure on transporting non-restricted firearms and keep it with you so you can show it to the cop when she stops you... I carry a copy in my truck at all times.

    Throw it in a soft guitarcase if you want to draw the least attention.

    I used to ride my enduro between Lions Bay and mid way to Whistler with my 10/22 in a soft case tucked in next to me quite regularly during the late 80s to go fishing and grouse hunting in the Starvation Lake area. Never had a problem, and it never occurred to me that I would. No one even gave me a second glance, but a lot has changed in that time with who uses that corridor.

    I wonder if things have changed.... if I did the same thing today, what would the outcome be?

    So what you propose is legal as well. Although it may be easier to use a backpack with a rifle scabbard.

    I don’t think anyone drives slow enough on that section to pay enough attention.
