    Get some decent quality tie downs (if you happen to be in the central Texas area I've got a bunch you can have), 4 points of contact, and compress/load the suspension enough so it's not bouncing around back there every pothole or speedbump you go over.

    Decent overview here

    Try looking into something like this:
    https://www.amazon.com/Canyon-Dancer-32505-Bar-Harness-Handlebars/dp/B0013LF3ES

    If you get it make sure you get the one with the right size for your handlebars.

    I don't have personal experience with it and used to use ratchet straps. You can probably use other tie downs at similar points or same principle.

    But I think these might be easier and faster to use. If I ever got a bike again I'd probably get these too.

    This really is the key, but it only works if you wear cargo shorts and crocs. (BTW, I am wearing cargo shorts right now and was wearing crocs about a hour ago)

    Sorry to derail into a net discussion but these are nice for light duty use if you have a lot of bulky items.

    Don't leave them attached all the time though. The UV really breaks the elastic down. My last one lasted for ~2 years when left in the bed 24/7/365.

    And then when the cargo spills out when merging onto the freeway make sure to stand there on the fog line slackjawed and flabbergasted at how the load came out.

    If your wearing pit viper sunglasses then you just keep driving like nothing happened.
