I shopped around last night. Everyone has the Rok Straps 18-54 inch adjustable motorcycle straps. Chrome Glow is the only vendor that I could find who carries the 12-42 inch adjustable motorcycle straps too.

|grifscoots||The Rok Straps don't tie, they have an eye in one end and you loop the hooking end thru it. These thangs are right up there with peanut butter.|

I also like straps with quick release clips for large or heavy loads.
However, for a small duffle or drybag, or my rolled up rain gear that I strap to the pillion seat when travelling, I use a medium length, dual-bungee cord with a ring in the middle. Creates an "X" for strapping down small loads on the seat and clips onto the grab handles. Very secure, on and off in seconds.
See it here....about 8 bucks. http://www.bmwsantacruz.com/Merchant...roduct_Count=1

This strap has an adjustable length to fit your varying needs. The minimum length is 18”, with a recommended safe stretch of 58” and a maximum stretch of 62”. This length can be used for many different purposes and luggage types.
Hope this helps,

I use the passenger grab handles. They work great there! They are holding my dry bag (tent, sleeping bag etc. on the bike right now as I'm taking off to Oregon in the a.m. for a week and half or so!

Sound Rider: Free Shipping
I just ordered a few different types of ROK Straps from an online company called Sound Rider who offer free shipping. No affiliation as I'm a number cruncher for Verizon Telecomm.
These seem to be really well designed and they advertise in BMW ON.

Grif, et al,
OK, I'm sold on the Rok Straps.
Do you tie them to the rack or the grab handles (or both)?
Do you use the fixed or adjustable straps?
What sizes do you use most often?

There have been times, like when strapping a cardboard box, that I thought I was going to break the plastic clips putting so much pressure on them. They just keep on keeping on. I'm a fan.

I'm also a strap man. I see too many bungee cords on the freeways. Never seen a strap though.
Years ago, before I owned a washer and dryer, I bungeed my dirty underwear to the bike and I was off to the laundromat. When I got there, it was gone off the back of the seat. I may a beeline back to find it and never did. It was in a pillowcase so maybe some homeless person stole it. Hope they enjoyed it.
