Reckless 80L System (v2.0)

We designed the Reckless 80L for minimalist off-road riding/camping. Backcountry Discovery Route exploration, and international fly-to-ride trips. The Reckless 80 does not require side pannier racks to mount to the bike, which saves significant weight and cost, plus it expands and contracts to accommodate a wide variety of loads. This is an extraordinarily 'livable' luggage system.

With the Reckless 80, we wanted to replicate the traditional three-bag organization and packing system of a touring bike (two side panniers and a rear duffle) on a bike that doesn't have pannier racks. We wanted it to be 100% waterproof, and easy to get into, so you don't have to unstrap everything to get at your lunch or pull out a jacket.

The R80 is 100% waterproof, with three removable 800D polyurethane coated (PVC free) drybags that slide/strap into an outer "holster" that stays attached to the bike. If you're setting up a new bike, the Reckless system saves you the added weight and expense of metal pannier racks, while still providing a traditional 3-bag organizational system (i.e. two side panniers and a duffle).

All three drybags have roll-top closures, and they can be easily accessed throughout the day, so you don't have to mess with the holster attachment straps to access your food, clothes, or tools. The rear center bag is our Stinger 22 drybag, which has stashable backpack straps, and works great as an airline carry-on or as a day pack for short hikes or trips to town. The side bags are interchangeable, and include a clear panel on the front so you can easily find your gear.

The Reckless 80 has separate rear pockets on both sides, which are perfect for storing extra gas, water, tools, and tubes - anything you need quick access to throughout the day. It features two panels of two-column MOLLE webbing on the legs, and one panel of three-column MOLLE webbing on the rear beavertail, so the bag can easily be expanded with a wide variety of MOLLE attachments.

The overlapping rear beavertails are a perfect spot to tuck a motorcycle jacket when it's not in use, or to store wet things - like a tent rainfly, towel, or campsite garbage – that you don't want inside your drybag. The inside panels of the beavertails include a tent pole holder, a removable map pocket, and a mesh pocket for wet/dry items like toothbrush/toothpaste.

The Reckless 80 includes:

  • A Tent Pole Bag, a welded-seam, roll-top drybag to protect your tent poles and keep them secure while you ride.
  • A laser-cut aluminum exhaust heat shield and a hose clamp to attach it.
  • A separate 20L Drysak bag, which can be used to keep dirty/wet items (like shoes or towels) separate from your other belongings.

In 2016 we redesigned the R80 harness as a 3-piece system, which can be disassembled for an international fly-to-ride trip. The entire system fits conveniently in a rollaboard. If you have a crash on a long trip, the various components can be repaired or replaced individually, saving cost and hassle.

To expand the capacity of your Reckless 80, add a Tracker 10L drybag to the back with a set of Simple Cinch Straps. There are two aluminum d-rings on the rear beavertail of the Reckless 80 which are specifically designed for holding these two bags. Run the Simple Cinch Straps through the webbing pass-throughs. See this picture, this picture, and this picture for examples. On the Tracker 20, leave the removable beavertail at home when you're mounting it on the Reckless 80.

Want to protect your Reckless 80 from thieves? Add a set of our Steelcore Locking Straps. The Reckless 80 requires four 4.5' straps. Mounting instructions can be found in this video.

For more pics of the Reckless 80 on various makes/models of bikes, try searching on google, or visiting our thread (in the 'Vendor' forum).

Included in your order are two pieces of Velcro. Use these to put on the underside of the Stinger 22 when used as a backpack to prevent Velcro from catching on your clothing.

a) Every Reckless 80 and Reckless 40 comes with an included heat shield. Please use the heat shield!Exhaust and exhaust heat burns are not covered by your warranty. Before you leave for your trip, we recommend checking and double checking that no part of the bag or your bike's plastics are contacting the exhaust. On dual-exhaust bikes or bikes with especially high/exposed pipes, you will need a second heat shield, which is available for purchase in the 'Hardware & Parts" section of our website. When installing the Reckless system on your bike, please make sure the exhaust is not blowing directly on the bag. In general, make sure the bag is not touching or close to extreme heat; go physically around the bag daily, cinch it tight, and make any necessary adjustments.

b) The Reckless 80 and Reckless 40 were designed for rugged riding. They have a durable hypalon and ballistic nylon backing that can rub against the plastic parts of the bike, resulting in minor abrasion. Please take precautions if you do not want your bike parts marred by placing a clear adhesive sheet to where abrasion may occur on your motorcycle. Some examples of protective products are listed below. We suggest taking a short test ride with protection applied and with a loaded Reckless installed on the bike to assure satisfactory results.

d) There are many "wear points" on the Reckless system that are different on every bike. See this videofor examples. These could be on the bottom of the bag - where the harness touches the bike or luggage rack - or on the drybags themselves, where they contact the harness, tent poles, or other items. After your first day or two of riding, please inspect the bags carefully, identify high-friction wear points, and either remedy the friction or apply a sacrificial 'patch' that can be periodically replaced before the bag itself is damaged. In particular, it is normal for the fabric on the bottom of the harness to show wear, and this does not affect the structural integrity of the bag nor its waterproofing.

  • If friction causes the fabric on the bottom of your bag to wear through, this is not a big deal. There is a hard plastic plate inside the Reckless harness that will prevent the friction from reaching your drybags, and thereby affecting the functionality of the system. Fabric, vibrating under pressure between the hard plastic inside the harness and a hard metal bike part, will eventually wear out. To prevent this, apply a sacrificial patch to the wear point, or apply some padding on the bike.
  • If your connection straps are wrapping around a sharp metal edge, for example on a bag mounting cleat, foot peg, or luggage rack, and the straps begin to show signs of wear, it is critical to address the wearbefore the strap is too far worn to use. Either file/grind the sharp edge, or apply (and maintain) a sacrificial 'sleeve' for the webbing made from fabric, additional webbing, or duct tape. A sharp metal edge vibrating under pressure will eventually wear through webbing, sometimes quickly. If this occurs, take some extra webbing to a local sewing shop and they should be able to easily repair the damage.

e) KTM 690 & Husky 701: While it is possible to mount the R80 on a 690/701 without any kind of rear luggage plate, we advise against it for offroad riding, because the bag will move around a lot, and may contact the swingarm when the suspension is compressed. For a tight fit, we recommend the Perun Moto rear plate with the Perun extension plate added on top. Please read Pete's post for this fitment by going to the following Blog Post and scroll 3/4 down the page to 'Reckless 80 Fitment: KTM 690 & Husky 701'

We needed this

Product Creation at Mosko is an effort born of necessity. Everyone on our team rides – and time on the trail translates to an innovative, always improving product line. Crafting gear that will outperform in even the most harsh riding conditions means we make no compromise, ever.

"You have to actually see this bag to fully appreciate the build quality and the cleverness that went into conceiving it. It's everything I ever wanted for long travels on trails. Soft but hard, light but heavy, this thing is a paradox made in motorcycle heaven. It is so practical, that it couldn't have been imagined by anybody other than true riders."

– Antonio Albanese, 2018

Question, will the RECKLESS 80L SYSTEM (V2.0) model be on sale again soon?


My first ride with these bags was three days through rain and dirt and they held up spectacularly well. From the they looked like they'd been dipped in mud but everything inside was bone-dry and clean. I had to change my packing system to make full use of the modular set-up but what I've got now is way better than before. The Reckless is simply brilliant - I held off buying it for weeks because I couldn't believe anything could be as good as it is said to be. But it is - probably better in fact. I love it. The only downside is it's impossible to look at them without wanting to throw them over the bike and head off out again. I'm not getting any work done.
