I have had a harley for a couple summers now and love to ride. I always take my truck to work over summer so I can golf right after, so I didn't get to ride as much as I would have liked. Although I just thought of trying to bring my clubs to work on my bike. I have had a locker at my local course in the past but I tend to play multiple courses now so it is not as convenient. Does anyone bring their clubs with them? I have seen brackets that can hold a bag on the back, and even though they look goofy, they seem very practical. Has anyones gone through this problem?

I ride and I play golf. I would never haul my sticks on the back of my Softail to the course. No offense, but that looks ridiculous and potentially dangerous. Separate your hobbies and focus on one at a time...

I could just picture leaving the ball pocket or any pocket slightly unzipped.  A few bumps and arrive at the course and the pocket is empty and your contents are somewhere between your house and the course.  
I'd probably opt for club storage instead.

No, it's not overboard.

No, it's not dangerous.

As long as you feel the bag is secure, keep on riding.  I've ridden well over 1K miles with my bag laying horizontal on the passenger seat of my Goldwing.  I stuff my towels around the club heads, then button and bungee the raincover on the bag.  My motorcycle isn't just a hobby.  I put as many miles on it in a year than I do with my truck.  It also helps that I get twice the gas mileage on the bike.  I saved over $50 in gas on a golf trip up to Michigan last year.  That paid for the first round right there.

yeah the gas mileage is a huge plus, i easily get double to gas mileage on my bike. Thinking about the trying the rack, i don't have a storage rack or a backseat to strap it to. its a win win getting to golf and ride there and back. I have atleast a 30 minute drive to any course from my house so the gas would add up
