    Carry metal detector on bike?

    I just got back on two wheels for the first time in 10 years. Anyone here ride a bike and pack their detector along? If so how do you stow it?
    If I can't figure out an easy way to do it, my detecting time will be nil, I just can't hardly bring myself to fire up the car now.
    When winter gets here (probably late December ) it may be a different story, but while the weather is nice its hard to get my but out of the saddle.

    Just put a strap on it and wear it across a shoulder. If it gets hurt, you are going to be worried about more than the detector~~~!!!

    Like your ride as well camodude. Looks like a great weekend get away ride. Guess I need to invest in some bigger sadddlebags.
    Roland58, I thought about that as well . Might work for close places, but at 70-80 MPH for an hour or so, no thanks.

    Consider getting a backrest (aka: sissy bar) for that sweet machine, you can strap it to the backrest or another option is they sell a product called a "T-Bag" that slips over the backrest and it will provide you with alot of carrying room, especially designed for long cross country trips and it will be able to carry your detector with no hassles, plus food, clothes, tent, ect.


    The cheaper option is to get a slim bag that will fit just your detector gear and strap it to your back or bungee it over the passenger seat.

    I carry mine from time to time on my bike, just break it down and put it in my Alice pack. Shafts stick out about 6" but it gets the job done. Recently I found a Tennis raquet case at Goodwill for $1.50 that fits my Cibola like a glove when it's in pieces.

    A good sized back pack will solve your problem.

    Re: Carry metal detector on bike?

    My wife and I were down at Delmarva bike week in Ocean City, Maryland. I saw there was a local dealer close to where we were. Not far just across the state line in Delaware. Had a great conversation with the owner and struck a great deal on an Excal ii. Had the bike only,so we just bungee strapped it on, she held the box.Only a few miles back to the condo in Md. Got to use it in the Atlantic a little. Had lots of friends down that had cages. Got one of them to haul it home for me back to Pennsylvania. Have strapped it on the bike several times up here as well. Photo taken by the dealer, said this is a first for him. He mentioned sending it to Minelab in Vegas. Said they may want to used it in a future flyer. Have fun and stay safe.
