Recycled Straps…

Dakine strap…

I use a lot of straps to attach surfboards and kayaks to our vehicles. Straps wear and it’s important to take them out of service before they break in use and damage your expensive gear. As I inspect my straps I cut out damaged sections and save what’s left. At some point that doesn’t leave enough to strap a boat onto a vehicle. So I move the strap along and use it on my KLR650.

I leave a bungee net on my KLR for unexpected loads and I use it a lot, but it can only wrangle smaller items. I’ve started riding with the short strap tucked under the net so I can use it when bigger objects need hauling or when I need more security than a bungee net can offer.
