I want to be able to take my camera bag with me on rides but I don't have any straps or tie-downs. It weighs 8 or 10 pounds (maybe more, I don't have a scale) and carries thousands of dollars worth of equipment, so I need something strong. Searching for short cargo straps isn't too helpful for me. I keep getting axle tie-downs or 8' long straps. I don't trust most of the "cable organizers" because they don't look like they're strong enough to keep the bag secure on a bumpy road.
Seeing the size of the bag on the Vespa, I'm thinking I may have to find a smaller bag and carry less equipment. The weight of that thing and up that high on the scooter could affect handling. I'm still too new at riding yet to try it out, but it looks pretty ominous.
Any ideas from some of you more experienced riders?
