You sort of have to follow what's available. In a lot of places there is 250-300 kms between towns and gas stations. And 600 kms in a day when the wind is blowing 50-60 kmh all the time is no fun.

Thin heavy duty plastic straps, torqued to pianowire tension... seems to be holding them up just fine.
Back in YVR after riding around the world for 2 years.
