Something kinda related... When the guy dropped his bike first time the frunk got open. Similar situation I saw on two different YouTube videos, when the rider drops the bike the frunk would open. Just a coincidence or that's kinda an issue with NC's frunk?

There are some riders, myself NOT included, who are known to ride with the frunk lid unlatched. So naturally it might fall open with the bike on it's side. One time I didn't press my frunk lid down firmly. Later, it flew open on the highway, startled me big time, and made be do a u-turn to go retrieve a hat that blew out.

Oh! Ok, I understand why it could happen, but don't understand why would somebody do that? To hold a open bag of chips and and eat? Totally wrong...

Ha ha ha ha... I can imagine! The situation for a heart attack.

My frunk pops open at inopportune times. Not a real positive latch system, and with limited adjustability approaches. So for now I am using a bungee cord as a safety. I just pull it forward when I want to open or close the frunk and it stays there until I pull it back again.
