If you ride a motorcycle that doesn't have a trunk. You need a cargo net. You'll never know when It'll come in handy. I picked mine up from Amazon for 8 bucks. It comes in black, orange, red or blue. The hooks are plastic but feel really sturdy. I keep mine in my backpack, and mainly use it to strap down groceries, or an extra helmet. In its relaxed state the net sits about 1ft x 1ft. Fully stretched out it's about 3ft x 3ft. These days I use it to go crabbing on my motorcycle.  But no luck so far.  Don't it at home.
