So I know bungee cords are dangerous, unreliable, and malfunction frequently. Obviously tie downs are a bit on the long side, suppose I could shorten them up easily, but that seems like a.) overkill and b.) a lot of extra weight A fancy rope and knot set up may be beyond what I'm capable of with my current knowledge of knots. Beyond that I just think it would end up being a lot of fuss every time you pack up camp. Do they make little tie down straps? Did I miss this piece of equipment every time I was anywhere? Also; the bungee nets... What can I expect out of these other than to additionally secure strangely shaped items and maybe add a layer of idiot proofing? (hoping something will jiggle and I'll notice before it falls off) I'm getting ready for my first solo weekend on the new bike, and I've never had "luggage" before. I've got a CRF450X and some Wolfman E-12's; so at least I have some mounting points.
