Reckless 40 (V3) Ltd. Edition Orange - Good fit for my 2020 KTM 390 ADV

Hey, first a big arigato to the Mosko crew for their attention to detail, functionality and clever ideas to improve the rider experience. The morning I saw the new limited edition orange (Japan time), I ordered my Reckless 40 in the new orange, which happens to be an ideal fit (form, color, weight, adaptability) to my 2020 KTM 390 ADV. Sure, everything is a bit snug at first - the material is heavy-duty spec, so will take a while to conform better. Have some questions about ultimate waterproofing of the side bags, rainy season (aka “uki” in Japan) should arrive in June so we can give it a dousing. But light is right for me, so the gear fits the machine and fits me the rider, if not to a “Tee” then at least to a KTM. Cheers!

I have been evaluating a luggage solution for my Husky 2020 FE 350S since moving over from an adventure bike to a dual sport and arrived at the Reckless 40. I will be using these on overnight trips and (multi-day) BDR rides. I am excited to try this on the Idaho BDR this summer. So far I am able to pack my gear in this system with the Stinger 8, 2 4L Molles and a Kreiga Trail 18 back pack. This is an easy to install elegant, high quality luggage solution for my light weight dual sport bike, get one if you are considering it!

Reckless 40

Very durable and high quality fit/finish. I’ve only had them on the bike long enough to mock up with gear storage. Will hold enough for 2 nights on the trail with a minimalistic approach. Absolutely no concerns of loose flapping gear as everything buttons down snug. I will be adding the Nomex tank bag to complete my gear needs for access to more immediate items and extra water. The reckless 40 is just enough and maintains a low profile slim line. Glad I jumped on the buy when I did as these aren’t readily available. Looks like it’s time to ramp up production Mosko!

No stone left unturned!

These bags are amazing! I bought the Reckless 40L for my WR250R and couldn't be happier. The bag construction is phenomenal, as well as how they fit on the bike. Every single detail has been thought through. I commend the design teams on such an amazing bag. Take the rest of the week off! I'm lucky to live in an era where human kind has access to such beautifully built travel gear.

Reckless 40L (V3.0)

The Reckless 40L (V3.0) is a rackless pannier/duffle system that easily mounts on pretty much any motorcycle. We designed this bag for day trips on larger bikes, Baja-style hotel-hopping, or overnight camping from a smaller bike. The Reckless 40 is 100% waterproof, with three separate removable welded-seam drybags that slide/strap into an outer harness, which stays attached to the bike.

For the ultra-minimalist camper (i.e. bivy sack, summer-weight bag, freeze-dried food), this is an awesome way to turn your trail bike into a mini adventure bike and use it to access hard-to-reach backcountry spots like lakes and hot springs. For hotel-hoppers on trail bikes, you can easily fit a change of clothes, a pair of pack shoes, tools and tubes, a warm jacket, and your dop kit. The R40 is also an excellent day ride bag that can live on your bike full time.

V3.0 adds a number of important upgrades. The width of the harness is now adjustable, with one setting for enduro and trail bikes, and a second setting for wider dualsport and adventure bikes. The beavertail on the center harness is removable, plus we added an expansion panel on the beavertail to accommodate a larger duffle like the Stinger 22. We changed the construction of the leg harness, replacing sewn seams with rivets, to reduce the risk of seam separation in a crash. Also, the three piece design makes the harness much easier to repair, plus you can replace components individually. We also changed the design of the mounting straps and most major buckles, to make them easier to replace/repair in the field.

The Reckless 40 includes three waterproof roll-top drybags, that can be easily accessed throughout the day. You don't have to mess with the holster attachment straps to get to food, clothes, or tools. The side drybags have clear panels on the front, so you can tell which bag has what you need, and they have stiffeners in the back to reduce movement while riding and make it easier to slide into the holster. They also have webbing handles at the bottom, so they can be pulled into the holster from the bottom.

The default center bag on the Reckless 40 is our Stinger 8. It turns into a backpack with mesh straps that unfold from inside the bag, in case you want to go for a day hike or run into town for errands. The Stinger8 also has 4 sewn-on connection straps with matching ladderlocks, so it can be rigged as a standalone fender bag, tail bag, or pannier topper. To expand the capacity of your Reckless 40, you can replace the Stinger 8 with a Stinger 22 Tailbag. The Stinger 22’s larger dimensions are great for bulkier items, like a sleeping bag in a stuff sack.

The Reckless 40 has sewn-on rear pockets on both sides, which are perfect for storing fuel bottles, water, tools, and tubes. On top, the R40’s removable beavertail is a great spot to tuck a motorcycle jacket when it’s not in use, or to store wet or dirty things - like a tent fly, towel, or campsite garbage. The beavertail is removable, so you can take it off when you don’t need it, and it can be rotated to run either parallel or perpendicular to the bike. On the top of the beavertail and front of the leg holsters, there are MOLLE panels so you can customize the harness with various MOLLE accessories.

Please Note:

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.

Allstar Performance Tape

3M Polymask Protective Tape

c) There are many "wear points" on the Reckless system that are different on every bike. See this video for 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 wear before 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.
