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.
Quick install and very happy with the quality of the rack. Extremely fast shipping.
You go through reviews and they are nothing but dreams and nightmares. "The best ever!" "The Worst, don't buy, run away." This review is going to be a fair eval of the product. The Outback Motortek pannier rack for my BMW F800GS is a pretty sweet setup. I would buy again and I would recommend to anybody looking for a pannier rack to give these a good look. Installation was a breeze. (I did have to loosen the muffler and remove the factory passenger handle/attachment point units, but you can't fault the rack for install prep.) All the holes lined up, no bending or modifications were needed. It took all of 10 bolts and 4 nuts. The unit itself is 3 pieces of welded tube steel. Fit and finish is quality manufacturing. Price point is where it should be. They are making a quality product and selling it at a fair price. Other racks always seemed way overpriced for what they are, IMO. They look good on the bike, not overly complex. They don't look or feel cheap or bad quality; good, efficient design. I have no doubt they will function for their purpose when I purchase my Scout 25L Pannier Kit(Do those ever go on sale?). If you've read this far and are still on the fence, just buy them. If my experience is the norm, you will not be disappointed.
Everything they promised and more.
My conversion from hard to soft panniers is going well. My adjustment to the Mosko 35L bags and the Outback rack is almost complete. I have two overnight trips under my belt so far and look forward to some longer journeys before too long. Oh, and yes one drop in the mud confirmed the durability of the new system.
I bought the pannier rack and Backcountry 35L for my KTM 1090. The rack was easy to install and creates a solid mounting point. The Backcountry panniers are the coolest system on the market. The attachment point is bomb proof and quick to mount and dismount. They are a bit heavy, but how could they not be?! They are built like a brick s***house! Excited to log some miles with this combo.
