    After a 38 year absence I started riding a motorcycle again. I need a case that is safe to transport my cues strapped across my back. I have more than reasonable fear of strap failure and losing my cues to the pavement at 70 mph. I wish to avoid this. I appreciate any input on this matter. Thank...
