Motorcycles & Archery?

Was curious if any other riders who are also into archery carry their bows on their bikes? If so, what kind of set up do you use to carry your bows on your bikes?

I've though of mounting some type of fishing rod holder, but never archery equipment. Interesting thoughts....

I shoot in my yard 99.9% of the time. If I travel with a bow it's because I'm going hunting. Not sure what the hell I would do if I shot a deer, and had to get home on my bike.

Not sure if your bike has a sissy bar, but darn near anything can be strapped to them. I guess you could strap a bow?.?

My brother used to take his bike deer hunting. He would just call if he shot something and we would come with the truck to pick it up. He had my mom sew shoulder straps to his soft case and would carry it like a backpack. I have carried mine in a soft case with a shoulder sling, slung across my back a short distance, but probably wouldn't do it at highway speeds. I ususally practice in my yard too, but sometimes go to the local range when I want to shoot beyond 40 yards.

I strap my golf clubs onto mine all the time. They lay right across the rear seat, behind my adjustable backrest,snug against the tourpak. I bunge cord to the tourpak mounts and away I go!!
I don't need to give a day of riding to play, an don't need to give up time with my older brother to ride. win, win situation.
Where theres a will, theres a way!!

I've got a cheap Plano hard case that's carried my PSE compound through airtravel and the mail system more than would be pretty easy to drill a couple of holes and mount it to a tour pack or the top of a hard side bag.....there are back packs out there which have built in area to carry a bow....I'd be interested in what you figure out......

Awhile back, I saw those goons at OCC make a bike for Wilgame Innovations that had some archery stuff added into the bike. Not sure if you can see 'em below, but look it up. Kind of interesting, although bikes like that is not at all my cup of tea.

I carry my iaito and my bokken (japanese sword stuff for the uninitiated :P) to practice three times a week. I have a carrying bag, I just strap it on my back. I think you can carry the bow and arrow in that type of bag setup as well.

Carry a takedown 3 pc longbow and arrows in hard shell pvc case to shoots all the time.
Just tie them up to the rack on the tour pack.
There are D-rings on the PVC case makes it easy.
