For sure! I was forgetting the simple and right thing you say! I know a lot of famous brands that use to do this.
I can also add that all bags are streamlined to go tip forward, having smooth edges in the bow, and instead having zipper and more free edges in the stern; so they are clarly ALL intended for a bow-forward carrying.
Therefore the main pressure imho comes not from straps, but from rack bars pressure, so it's way better to have the stronger deck in contact (even with foam spacers) with them.
No more answers from the opposite party?
