+1 on the bungee cords, and the great thing about bungee cords is that they are cheap.

gotta admit, that is a pretty nice setup. especially if you use a tbag.

That's a pretty slick set up. I wouldn't be real keen on drilling holes in my bag though.

I can see what the inventor was thinking, but I agree, to me it's cool, but completely unnecessary.
Most bags have built in straps or some type of mounting system built in to them. If they don't, then the bungees take care of that problem.

I've seen what happens when a load that has been secured by bungee cords shifts. and it isn't pretty.....

when the wife and I go touring, we have 4 saddlebags and 2 chopped tourpaks between us. if we can't fit it in there, we don't need it. we do have the airwing racks on top of the tourpaks, but we don't usually use those, but they are there 'just in case'...

I'm sure the guys that like all the new fancy stuff, they'll probably go for it. I've been using straps for years, plus their inexpensive.

Fancy rack but will add unnecessary weight on the tour pack. My T bags have built on veltcro straps using it for years never have failed. Agree with others straps work well and are cheap.

The deal-breaker for me (if I would consider it in the first place) is drilling a bunch of holes in the expensive luggage....sorry, it's Ric-rap

I wasn't crazy about that idea either. But if it was 'amazing' I might consider it.

What holes are you guys talking about? I just looked at the website. It clearly states it attaches to your luggage rack. Now if you talking about drilling holes for a luggage rack I'd think you'd say you don't want a luggage rack (like me) not, you don't want to drill holes.

Watch the video.....you have to cut/drill multiple holes in the bottom of your luggage to attach the luggage to the rack, that then attaches to the bike
