Doesn't appear to be a firearm holster. With that huge top case, maybe a courier? The "holster" might contain one of those bar code readers.

Dave Swanson posted a photo of Rolland Free donning his helmet somewhere in this thread (reply 17). He was a friend and contemporary of Burt Munro...

I've lived in the Ozarks 99% of my life and never knew this place existed until I was out just cruising back roads one day.  Reason # 9,897,652 to stay off the interstate :-)

One of my personal faves, took this shot during the eclipse last summer from a civil war battlefield in SE Missouri

Could also be a 50 cal. musket ball, blotting out the sun microseconds before impact.

I couldn't figure it out.   It just seemed to be getting bigger and bigger for no reason.

Then it hit me .....
