    Mopeds and Motorbikes

    Team, can I legally take a cased rifle on my moped in England? All help appreciated. I know it is embarrassing, but is it legal? L

    of course it is, as long as the item you are carrying does not contravene the law in terms of safety - that is not the contents per se, but the size and shape and whether it's unsafe to transport the object...now what the rules are around maximum dimensions of packages you can bring on a moped, god knows!

    That is very helpful, thanks. I went out yesterday, wife needing car for our son's football practice run. Would have been interesting on the return journey if I hadn't (clean) missed that cracking roe buck with buck fever at 100 yards!

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    I was astonished when the FEO who visited me for my certificate grant spotted my bike on the drive and said it would be no problem to carry a rifle with me on the bike if I wished. It had simply never occurred to me, although it makes perfect sense when you think about it. Why should I not be allowed?
    In practical terms I found I could never really find a way of doing it that would be practical and comfortable, but I did bring a shotgun back from Northampton, broken down in a rucksack with the barrels sticking out of the top.

    back in the day when my father was young, he would bike all over the county with his shotgun on his back to get to where he was shooting, or more often than not, to the waterways by the coast for wildfowling..back then when young people did not see it as their god given right to have a license and a new car by the age of 17, this was quite the norm, and no one would ever raise an eyebrow to a young lad heading off with a shotgun on their back or returning with it and some ducks on the back of the bike.

    how times have changed for the worse I must say.

    Rifle in a scabbard and the deer rides pillion! Better check if it needs a crash helmet to be legal!
