Recommendation for Cargo Net for 2018 Model

Anyone have a recommendation for a cargo net for a 2017/2018 V-Strom 650? It's already got the stock mini-rack on the back, but I can't find a bungie net small enough for it. Embarrassingly, I went out for donuts for me and wife yesterday, and had to put them in my jacket . Thanks All.

Before panniers I just looped the bungee hooks through itself to cut down the size of the net.

I have never had complete success with bungees or cargo nets which always seem to let loads shift or fall out. Pony up for a couple of sets of ROK Straps & whatever you put under them stays put.

I have fitted these D rings on my top box & under heaps of bolts on my bikes just to help with tiedown options.

Thanks guys. Those Rox straps are perfect for what I need to carry donuts and other little things. When I graduate up, hard cases will be in my future, but for now this is great.

Not sure of the brand but the one I got from Revzilla is totally great and in my option, a "must have" item. The hooks also have hooks in the reverse direction so you can basically make the net any size and tension you want in any direction. Was about ten bucks, can't beat it.

ROK Straps are great. I have used them for about 10 years now. I always carry a set of large and a set of small ones but there are some things that are just better to secure with bungee nets. A smallish bag or box of almost anything is an example.

As have been mentioned doubling them back on themselves can help make them "smaller". Most bungee nets I have had (bought from Motorcycle stores) have had three hook on two of the sides so sometimes using the pair on a side that are closer together can also help.
