Re: Top Case Rack Straps
Assuming that you're somewhat adept at tying knots, I'd recommend simple, sturdy nylon cord. Doesn't look all jazzy and such, but you won't lose it, people won't be tempted to steal it (like some high-zoot velcro straps that I had--emphasis on the word had--a while ago), and, if you bring enough extra, when you get to an evening's destination, you can cut off the cord that you do use, bring your stuff into your room (or tent), and just re-tie with fresh cord the next day. Easy, cheap, effective, and won't mar the finish.
