    This thread is useless without Andy Strapz . Designed & made by a motorcyclist. Fully awesome. I have the piggyback straps & after tens of thousands of miles use I doubt there's anything better for attaching a roll bag/drybag type thing to the tail rack of a motorcycle.

    Every time I see one of these thread, I read how bad and unreliable bungee cords are. I guess I must be doing it wrong. I find them to be strong, extremely versatile, have a good grip, and they are inexpensive. One must choose a good quality bungee. Not all bungees are created equal.

    Here are a few examples of some of the oddball stuff I have hauled secured by bungees.
