KLR mod, Tankbag straplocks

I though of another mod. I'm a retired musician/guitar player. They make a item for guitars called a strap lock. Its a chrome quick release dodad where one half mounts to the guitar and the other half mounts to the strap. When connected it keeps your high dollar Stratocaster from hitting the stage floor. I mounted the half that mounts to the guitar on the frame of the bike between the seat and the tank on both sides. The other half gets mounted to the straps on the tank bag. This half has a pull to release knob on it. It makes taking the tank bag on and off a lot easier. No more fumbling with D rings around the frame. I believe the name brand I use are made by the Schaller Co. They make guitar hardware. I'd bet they have a web site to check them out. This is what I like to call cross/over engineering. Ernie
