    Back when I used Walmart, I used to go on Saturday mornings at ~4AM. The number of strippers and/or sex workers getting off work and stopping by for groceries after they picked up their kid from the babysitter was surprisingly high and always made for interesting viewing.

    benenglish,

    NEVER been there at 0400 but I know how many HOT ladies are often there at other times.
    (Just because I have a beloved does NOT mean that I've become blind.)

    yours, satx

    My mom was a real looker in her day and guys used to leer at her. As long as they looked and didn't touch, my dad's attitude was that he didn't care. Direct quote: "I know she's going home with me."

    Mom had the same attitude toward my dad when she caught him looking. Hell, she'd point out women to him because, well, as she always said: "I know he's coming home with me."

    I actually remember my mom telling a girlfriend who mentioned my dad looking at other women "He's married, not dead."

    Those were two people who trusted each other completely. And their trust was never betrayed.

    And to go tangentially back on topic - my mom learned to ride on a Hydra Glide. I have no doubt she wouldn't have hesitated to carry a long gun on her back. :)

    Different times, though.

    benenglish,

    Your Mom sounds very much like my "D", as she trusts me to be at home with her, rather than "in the clubs" or "chasing skirts".

    wedge1,

    Fwiw, The Alamo City is NO longer one of the USA's "5 fattest cities"; now we're 7th & moving DOWN on the list.

    Even so, I would strap that backpack on your pillon seat, or sissy bar if equipped that much weight will tear your back up, and if/when you crash will probably damage some vertebrae.

    When you hit a bump. A heavy pack is an anchor for the rebound. It'll compress your the hell out your vertebrae. Hundred of times a minute or one good time over the right pot hole. A pack frame should help a lot. I don't have one. I'd try it on a longer ride. Let the weight bounce off your waist. Shoulder straps loosened for it to ride lower....

    Im from AZ. Although I quit riding in the early 2000s, riding with slung long guns to the range is not unheard of. Happened all the time and police ignored. Were constitutionally open carry and before ccw everyone open carried. Lots of us. You could tell the out of towners by the shocked looks cause guns were so normal no one noticed. Especially in less urban areas. i.e. everywhere but Phoenix.

    That's the one bad thing about ccw permits in the 90s, within 10 years with lots of ccw and non free state immigrants you got a huge influx of MWAG calls. Stupid.
