I can't remember what crate I got my straps out of. Their secret is that they are cotton and won't melt on hot exhaust.

Good Lord, I am good at knots but that is one of the most complex ones I've seen and I really can't see any advantage to it other than amazing bystanders. The one I use can be tied and untied while drunk - the true measure of usefulness in a knot.

Same connections as the ones that failed on mine. Just have them snug, not too tightly connected. Mine ended up wrapped around the final drive.

The left half looks like a Bowline on a bite, I have no idea what the right half is.

Having failed fastex buckles I don't use them anymore.

Arno straps are the classic good stuff. These are a heavy duty version with buckle protection:

Notice that it is from www.animatedknots dot com. They show how it's tied if I remember correctly.

Pretty thing I think. Doesn't mean it works though.

When I see it tied it looks better than first impressions.

Smaller strap that will (hopefully) break if it tangles in the wheel.
I put the strap through the bag handle to prevent it from sliding backwards or forwards.
Easy to undo the strap for access to the bag.
And the strap can be used to anchor those little elastic jobs (eye pokers) and hold sleeping bags on top of the bags.

I made some straps out of leather. I kept them long for strapping extra stuff to the bike, but they're actually a little too long. Oh well.

That won't melt on your muffler. Neither does my cotton straps. I have only used nylon a couple of times and I melted them every time. Straps not only keep your bags from opening and on the bike, they take the stress off the hinges and locks!

Nice work!. I could use a belt like that.

How's it work in the rain?
