10 Affordable Farkles for Under $40

Upgrade your ride without downgrading your dough.

Published on 01.10.2015

10. WPS Adjustable Cargo Net ($9.95)

WPS Adjustable Cargo Net Webbing

Dimensions: 15″ x 15″ un-stretched; 36″ x 36″ stretched
Colors: Black, Red, Blue
Features: 6 removable plastic hooks

A cargo net is a quick-fix time saver. They help carry newly acquired items like firewood, groceries or — this one’s important — beer back to your campsite. Not many people haul these bulky items with them on long journeys, so it’s expected to pick them up near the final destination of the day. No need to unload everything at camp to make room for last minute consumable items. On your way to camp, you can pickup anything you need for the evening and quickly strap it to the exterior of your luggage.

The WPS Adjustable Cargo Net can hook directly to your top bag, rack, or whatever else is securely fastened to your bike. It’s not complicated; just find something stable for the hooks to grip, cover your load with the cargo net and stuff in all the essential accouterments you can fit. It’s an easy, fast, pain-free way to carry odd-shaped items. Plus, it doesn’t take up much space so you can easily stash it away when you aren’t using it. Made of durable plastic, as opposed to metal, the hooks are less likely to leave nasty scratches on your paint or rust as the weather turns nasty. The net itself is brawny, even stretched out to over twice its size! A steal of a deal, this farkle is a no-brainer addition to your vault of motorcycle paraphernalia.

This is not a simple bolt on item (Tusk 1 1/8″ handlebar). Even the photo shows you need something like the Roxx bar risers to make it bit as the stock mount is for 7/8″ bars. This fact was not mentioned in the article.

Of course the very next farkle in the article is the handlebar adapter.

Come on, a picture of a KLR in an article about cheap mods and no mention of milk crates?

Shoot! That would have been killer add-on. Right after the bungee net.

Coleman saddle pad is barely a half inch thick and pretty useless. I gave mine away for free after a 600 mile ride in which mine did ZIP ZILCH NADA for comfort. In fact, I rode through rain and it made my behind and inner thighs feel about 1000x’s worse than if I didn’t have it.

Everyone’s different, I guess: I’ve heard a few different guys praise the Coleman as a cheap, yet useful add-on that gave them some saddle relief.
