The Reckless 10 is a storage solution for small and midsized thumpers. The Reckless 10 can radically transform your trail-riding experience, by taking all the weight of tools, tubes, snacks, jacket, and extra fuel out of your backpack and off your back, and transferring it to the bike instead. You’re still carrying all the weight either way, but now it’s on the bike, and not weighing you down.
The side legs of the R10 harness come with two RF welded-seam drybags, which are completely impervious to water. If it rains heavily, or if you drop your bike in a water crossing, you don’t have to worry about a bunch of rusted tools or a water-logged camera. You can also replace one of the side bags with a large MOLLE pouch, and store a hydration reservoir for drinking water instead.
With the R10, you can also extend your range by providing a spot to carry up to 5 extra fuel bottles: 4 in the harness, one in an optional add-on MOLLE bottle holder on the exhaust side of the bike. The fuel bottles slide directly into the harness, and connect to each other with a leash (the leash is provided on the bottom of the R10 drybag). This is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to extend your range without purchasing a large aftermarket desert tank.
The removable beavertail in the center of the R10 harness is perfect for a rolled up windbreaker or rain jacket. The clips that attach it are gated, so you can remove the beavertails, or you can re-orient them to run perpendicular to the bike if you want to add in a third drybag for extra storage capacity. A Tracker 10, Stinger 8, or large MOLLE pouch fits great here.
The Tracker 10 includes two mounting cleats, which can be bolted to the rear fender of the bike, providing a convenient lash point for the rear connection straps. For a more permanent and secure mounting option, you can also drill directly through the harness and mount it directly to the rear fender (this will not void your warranty).
a) Every Reckless system 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 systems 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.
c) 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.
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.
New to the smaller dual sport world after years on big twin Adventure bikes. I love the transition, especially the ability to seek out tight single track in the Pacific North-Wet.
Not much room for tool kits, jacket, spare fuel, and the like on the thumper.
Enter the Reckless 10. Mounting is pretty straightforward. Keep in mind that Mosko Moto leaves it up to you to figure out how you want to mount their accessories. If you like detailed mounting instructions that tell you exactly what to do and how, you’ll need to learn how to improvise and adapt. That said, once you mount it in a way that doesn’t interfere with foot placement or the seat, you are ready to roll.
I’ve only put 600+/- miles on my bike, and about half of those with the Reckless in place. I don’t really notice a difference with the possible exception of hitting my butt on my jacket when it is stuffed in the beaver tail (Klim jacket stuffed in its own pocket, then strapped to the Reckless). I don’t really notice it having any effect on the handling, and it is narrower than my legs, so creates no issues getting through tight spots on the trail.
The ability to toss my jacket and tool roll, as well as a small fuel bottle on the Reckless means I have that much less weight on my back as I ride. A welcome benefit.
The construction feels solid, the waterproof stuff sacks appear to be quite durable. My big question will be whether or not I simply leave these panniers attached to the bike, or take them off for lighter travel. Nice thing is, once you’ve figured out mounting, they take but a few minutes to mount or dismount. Easy to make up one’s mind last minute.
Needed a pack for longer dual sport trip with my dirt bike. Took my time choosing between different brands, as there are many choices now. Very happy with the Reckless 10. Fits great, very rugged, easy to use, and stays out of the way. I’ve been using a Nomad tank bag for the last couple of years now. Both great pieces of kit!
I have mudded, dusted, crashed, and burned with these with these bags on and they have held up great. Perfect feel on the bike through the smooth and the gnarl. Lots of storage options with the beaver tail coming in handy for shedding layers or much more. Great bags that store all of my piece of mind while way out in the woods or desert. Thanks for making great gear Mosko!!
This gear is so rugged, and well thought out. It is clear that this stuff is designed and made by riders. I just love it!
Just bought the Reckless 10L System for my 2019 KTM 300 XC W TPI. The bags are so nice for carrying all the standard stuff during a day on trail. I really like the bag in bag system they incorporated, makes it really easy to stash additional stuff at the bottom of each saddlebag. This is especially useful for picking up trash found on trail, stuff that I would otherwise hesitate to put inside a backpack. So far the bags have been working great, don't even notice they are there while riding!
