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.

I ordered the Reckless 10 after seeing it at the Vancouver Motorcycle Show where I got to play with it for a while. I used to mount another brand of small saddle bags that were super annoying as the straps would work their way loose on rough roads. They would move around and require constant adjustment. They were damaging the plastics on my bike, rubbed the paint off my crash bars and were starting to cause wear and tear to my seat. Following that I'd just throw everything in a backpack and head into the backcountry. That got uncomfortable quickly. This fills the gap perfectly. I can toss in spare tubes, a pump, puncture repair kit, tire irons, bead breakers, a little can of WD40 in one side, a spare midlayer in the other, a couple of drinks and snacks and I'm good to go. The Fatty tool roll fits perfectly in the center with a ball cap. The only thing I don't put inside the seam welded bags (even though they fit) are the bead breakers which are 17" long. They tuck nicely in the side between the waterproof bag and the tough outer bag. I wrap them in canvas to prevent any damage to the wp bag. I keep the R10 on the bike all the time now. They work well without the rear cargo rack on the DR (strap under the rear fender and around the frame) or with the rack installed. I can slide out the bags if I'm worried that something might get stolen while I'm riding around town making multiple stops. Perfect for picking up a dozen bagels or a couple bottles of wine too ;) I'm sure you could put ice in the bags to chill a couple of beers too.
Off road, I had to adjust once and then they stay firmly put. These are no nonsense bags and they look awesome as well. Don't be put off by the size, they carry everything I need and can be expanded with molle attachments for fuel bottles etc. I 100% recommend them.
Great Service from the get go! I called & reviewed the options for my needs.
The Product was just as advertised...well built, flexible, and expandable.
My KTM is great 60/40 setup. I have just retired ...the Reckless extends my day trips with extra water, food and fuel. The Reckless accommodates the necessary tools and parts to feel confident on any mountain or desert day trip.
The Reckless 10L System arrived and was mounted on My KTM Endure 690 R with no delay. It fits my bike perfectly and my current travel plans.
I have installed The Reckless 10 on my Ninja 400 & it is superb! Also added the two liter Molle bags on rear side. Fits perfectly!
Just installed the Reckless 10 system on my DRZ400S and it looks great. I did a lot of research before ordering it and I'm happy that I did. I was really impressed with the quality and construction of the bags and how well they fit the bike. I also ordered two Molle 2L storage pouches to add so I can carry extra fuel bottles. I'm stoked to put some miles on and put them to the test.
Have been looking forward to this product for a long time and it has exceeded my expectations so far. It feels like a very strong/durable bag. It stays snug on my bike (2017 ktm 350excf) and is exactly what I wanted for a day pack and could be even used for a weekender. I add the 3L pouch for a gas container and it fits and the pack like it was sewed on. The product doesn't come with any form of paper directions but with a little research and brainstorming, you should be able to figure out how to install it. Pretty straight forward. You can tell this product is from people with riding experience. Worth every penny.
