Its a 3M product called Dual Lock, or one of the many similar non-branded knock offs. Not quite as common to find as Velcro, but fairly readily available.

I think you can even order new strips from BMW for their tankbags, but I pressume it comes with the typical BMW parts pricing.

If you live in an urban area, check your local electronics shop. I buy genuine 3M Dual Lock by the foot for an excellent price.

Another good source is eBay, but make sure that the total of price + shipping is reasonable.
