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 systemcomes 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.
what i like about this system is no zippers! i seem to have issues with them when riding in dirt as the OEM bags had them. so far i like the bag sytem and have no complaints,
1st class service great product & comes highly recommended.
These are well designed and well made. You can tell the quality is superb when you first open the box. Once you figure out how you want to mount it, it is super easy to take off and put back on. It stays secure and keeps the weight off your back and down low. It looks great and works great! The 10L system is perfect for shorter trips and I can carry more emergency tools with me when I am way out there. You could fit camping supplies if they are compact and easily use this for light camping. I like that it is waterproof. It seems very durable. Thumbs up!
I just finished two days of difficult singletrack (Calico and Priest's Gulch near Rico) on my TR300 testing my new Reckless 10L system. I bought this to attempt to get rid of wearing a heavy backpack. Carrying water, tools, spares, survival essentials and more ends up weighing at least 20 lbs., which wears on your body on tough singletrack and messes with your center of gravity. On exposed singletrack neither of those is good. Very happy to report I have abandoned the backpack and easily carried everything in the Reckless 10. It's easy to install, fits low and close to the bike, does not interfere when doing any/all kinds of maneuvers, is easily adjusted and accessed and durable. Best of all, all that weight is now on the bike instead of me, making it less tiring and much easier to move quickly. I highly recommend it.
Put the 10L on my KTM500. Super light and comfortable. Plenty of room for tools, liquids, and food. They are super well made. I have had other systems before and I am in love with Mosko bags.
