Cargo Net

Postby kirk_dunkirk » Tue Apr 03, 2018 7:40 pm

Tried using one of those elastic cargo nets to strap some shopping on the back of the seat - but it was really hard to find anything to attach it to!
The rails under the seat provide few spots to really hook it on - the hooks just slide towards each other, not very secure.
Not to mention they scrape against the bodywork.

Have had the same problem before but back then time it was dark and I was in a hurry, so I chalked it up to user error. Not so sure this time.
Am I just doing this wrong?

I use a tail bag. It works well but it's handle for off-bike carrying messed up the paint above the taillight so cut off the handle.

Yes, the bag fits on the seat and attaches with Bungee cording to the rails along the sides of the seat.

Thanks.

The tail bag sits on the seat? Or two that hang over the sides like bicycle panniers.

And, so I guess the cargo nets generally don't work with this bike?

I like the bag on the tank, then if anything tries to jump overboard you can grab it.

Great to hear all the options, but what I'm also getting here is that people have found that cargo nets don't work on this bike?
I should probably give up on that option?
