You’ve all asked who makes the best pannier racks, and we finally have that answer for you. It’s Outback Motortek.
Their racks are beautifully engineered, super rugged, and installation is a breeze. Constructed of mild steel, they bend rather than crack during a crash. In the unlikely event that you do manage to break one, it’s easy to find a shop that can weld mild steel – no matter where in the world you go down.
Mosko’s Outback Motortek racks come finished in long-lasting black powder coat, and the best part is that they’re fully compatible with our Backcountry and Scout panniers.

After using Aluminum (touratech) panniers for years I made the switch to Mosko Backcountry panniers based on the recommendation from a friend and looking at the pros and cons. For a few hundred dollars more you can go from the cheapest options to one of the best options. Here are my observations:
Pros for Mosko:
1. Much better aerodynamics, especially with varied loads, resulting in better control and performance of motorcycle
2. Easier to remove
3. Easier to carry around
4. Clean look when bags removed
5. Simple to remove, takes seconds
6. More durable when bike is dropped or crashed - no loss of waterproof or damage to lid or seal resulting in inability to close completely
7. The new look of hardcore ADV riders?
8. Big bang for the buck
9. Extreme waterproof, dust protection, and protection
10. Gear in bags more secure and limited jostling around with compression straps
11. More secure bag attachment to rack with "beaver tail" attachment
13. Easier to store when off the bike
14. Ability to separate items within different storage areas
15. Multiple strapping points for additional gear
Pros for Aluminum panniers:
1. Easier to load
2. Standard ADV look (perhaps this will change?)
3. Better for stickers if that's your thing
Super happy with the quality and build of the rack. You will not be disappointed purchasing this!
I have been looking for a good pannier rack since I bought my F750GS in July. I lucked on these when they were still in stock at Mosko Moto and couldn't be happier. The install could not have been easier, took about 30 minutes in my complex parking lot. The rack is nicely made and everything went on smooth and easy.
My only complaint would be that the rack didn't come with written instructions, I'm old school and like to have papers that blow away halfway through installing a part. LOL
The Video instructions from the Outback Mototek site showed a slotted washer that is used as a spacer, my rack actually came with an aluminum washer which required removal of the foot peg assembly but that was no problem. I feel like the included washer is a more secure solution.
These racks bolted straight up, with an added tail rack, and held up perfectly on a week long offroad trip. Fairly lightweight also, very pleased!
What I really appreciate is that Mosko Moto takes the time to make sure their equipment fits your bike. Their is no guessing, there is no modifications, its just plug and play. Great co., great support, and great communication back and forth. If you got a question, call. They are awesome and very helpful with recommendations that are spot on. Keep up the great work Mosko.
