There is a difference here - he carries his firearm in his.

My firearm is in not so safe a place for a motorcycle get-off (inside the waistbelt).

Plus who the hell is gonna notice a fanny pack mounted there when you're on a bike? Or is this a thread about looking good at Starbucks in your riding gear?

AND YOU ARE WONDERING WHERE YOU SHOULD PUT YOUR CELL PHONE?

I would suggest putting it in your lingerie drawer or in the pocket of your best skirt.
I agree, but even more - and I haven't written this yet, but I've been thinking it - I'd rather my, say, hip bone lands on my cell phone before hitting pavement. Cell phones are layered, and it would at least absorb just a tiny bit more of the impact than if one wasn't there. it could actually help out for an impact, but then it would be destroyed.

The only question, then, is where or how to have it on you without detroying it during a get-off. And for that, my friends, I still suggest either an upper pocket or a fanny-pack on the front.
