BungeeLug Tie-Down, a Cycle Matters Editor Product Review
February 19, 2013
Accessory3 BungeeLug is designed to be attached to Harley-Davidson Softail docking hardware or to hard luggage typically installed on some Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

Accessory3 brings unique experience and engineering to product design opportunities for motorcyclists. While this is a “product review” of the Accessory3 BungeeLug, it is also about the Company and it’s Founder. We had the opportunity to meet and travel with Ron Hutchinson several years ago while he continued his work at Harley-Davidson.
Ron Hutchinson is Founder and Leader of the Accessory3™. His professional experience includes engineering, manufacturing, quality, service and divisional leadership positions at Cummins, Ford and 34 years at Harley-Davidson.
During his H-D career, Ron started and led the renewal of Quality in the Eighties, led the Softail program, made H-D University a roaring success, led the growth of the Parts & Accessories business from a corporate afterthought to the industry leading aftermarket provider of H-D parts and accessories, created Custom Vehicle Operations and led the introduction of the H-D Trike to the marketplace.
After retiring as Senior Vice President from Harley-Davidson® in 2009, Ron knew that his love of motorcycling could not simply wither away. His involvement and success with product development, accessories, and motorcyclists while at Harley-Davidson, and his inclinations toward understanding motorcyclists’ growing need for practical solutions for ride enhancements sparked his interest in developing Accessory3.
In Ron’s words:
“As a start-up company we know that unless we differentiate our approach to the marketplace with our products, our processes and our relationship with ALL our stakeholders, we will – at best – be just another accessory company in a very crowded field. That is not a sustainable business model. So, our approach is to:
The bottom line for Accessory3 is to manufacture and distribute quality products that are practical and meet motorcyclists need for comfort, stability, safety, and adventure.

More about the BungeeLug...
The BungeeLug is an extension of Hutchinson's unique vantage point while at Harley-Davidson. This product is very well designed and manufactured to integrate well with the design features of a stock Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
For $34.95 you can obtain a pair of the BungeeLugs. You can attach up to three bungee cords to each BungeeLug.
Accessory3 provides the required hardware allowing the BungeeLug tie-down to mount to Harley-Davidson model motorcycles having Harley-Davidson Docking Point attachment features for their detachable accessories. This is especially useful in avoiding the need to hook a bungee cord under the edge of a fender, which could move and may damage your paint.
Mounting hardware for 2 BungeeLugs and Instruction Manual...
All you need to supply is tools and ability to follow the very detailed instructions for installation. Installation should take no longer than 15 to 30 minutes.
