I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who leaves his keys in the seat lock. Sometimes it takes me a few minutes to find the little barstewards, patting pockets, searching every available garage surface, before I realise I’ve done it again. I am often not a learning organism.

I would also like to see the brackets. This has been my solution so far. It's cheap and easy but limited to only what I can fit in my backpack. Rok Straps are awesome though.

On the brackets - I will definitely post them up when I finish. As pictured above it's not 100%. I need to add some JB Weld bushings to stabilize the top mounts, a capture to lock everything in place, and a channel to secure the bottom. I'm working on that today and once it's together I'll post up a pick of the Beta.

At that point I'll use better, stainless hardware and paint it black. The brackets will be all but invisible.

What's that tail bag you have? It looks much neater than me strapping my backpack down. 

I've been thinking about buying this one.

Yup - it's that Cortech. It doesn't have much capacity but it works for day trips. I'm going to add a tail rack, so I'll probably get something bigger for multi-day trips. That Kriega stuff look pretty good.
