We designed the Reckless 80L for minimalist off-road riding/camping, Backcountry Discovery Route exploration, and international fly-to-ride trips. The Reckless 80 doesn’t require side pannier racks, saving significant weight and cost. It expands and contracts to accommodate a wide variety of loads, making it an extraordinarily 'livable' luggage system.
The V3.0 ‘Revolver’ is the most versatile Reckless 80 yet. Adjustable leg angle makes it equally at home on enduros like the CRF450L or KTM 500, as it is on larger ADV bikes like the Africa Twin. From GSA’s to 150cc dualsports, the Reckless 80 is a bag that can do it all.
*KTM 690 and Husqvarna 701 customers, please note that the stock exhaust on your bike runs too hot, so aftermarket exhaust is required. See below for more information.
With the Reckless 80, we replicated the traditional three-bag organization and packing system of a touring bike (two side panniers and a rear duffle) for bikes that don’t have pannier racks. If you’re setting up a new bike, the Reckless system saves you the added weight and expense of metal side pannier racks.
It’s 100% waterproof and easy to get into, so you don’t have to unstrap everything to get at your lunch or pull out a jacket. The side bags slide & strap into an outer “holster,” which stays attached to the bike. All three main compartments are welded-seam roll-top drybags for total waterproofness. The center top bag is our Stinger 22 drybag, which has stashable backpack straps, and works great as an airline carry-on or as a day pack for short hikes or trips to town. The side bags are interchangeable, and include a clear panel on the front so you can easily find your gear.
In addition to the three main compartments, the R80 Revolver now includes one optional 4L drybag ‘aux pox’ on the back of each leg (two total). These auxiliary pockets are perfect for storing smaller items that you might need quick access to throughout the day. The aux pox holsters can be used with or without their roll-top drybags, making them a great place for extra gas bottles, water, tool roll, or inner tubes.
Two overlapping rear beavertails create a perfect spot to tuck a motorcycle jacket when it’s not in use, or to store wet things – like a tent rainfly, towel, or campsite garbage – that you don't want inside your drybag. The inside panels of the beavertails include a tent pole bag, a removable map pocket, and two reinforced clear pockets for small items like toothbrush/toothpaste. On V3.0, the entire beavertail assembly is removable, if you want to use the harness without a rear duffle, thereby reducing the total capacity to 50L (or 58L with 2 aux pox).
If you need more than 80L of space, adding additional storage is easy. The beavertail straps extend to accommodate a second (or larger) top bag. The outside of the beavertail includes a 3-column MOLLE webbing panel, and each leg includes a 2-column panel on the front, with a 3-column panel on the rear. Add Mosko MOLLE pouches, a Tracker 10, or choose from a wide array of 3rd party MOLLE accessories.
The R80 harness is a 3-piece system, which can be disassembled for an international fly-to-ride trip. The entire system fits conveniently in a rollaboard. If you have a crash on a long trip, the various components can be repaired or replaced individually, saving cost and hassle. A foam pad reduces chafe between the harness and the bike, and the harness is armored with hypalon for abrasion resistance. All R80 drybags are made from 800D polyurethane (PVC free), to stand up to UV and cold weather.

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.
“You have to actually see this bag to fully appreciate the build quality and the cleverness that went into conceiving it. It's everything I ever wanted for long travels on trails. Soft but hard, light but heavy, this thing is a paradox made in motorcycle heaven. It is so practical, that it couldn't have been imagined by anybody other than true riders.”
Reckless 80L (V3.0) Revolver
While I don't have this mounted up I will admit that the upgrades look very good. The adjustable angle of the main bags, removable bags on the back are both very good improvements. Materials look to be first rate. This will replace my Reckless 80 V1 (which will be posted for sale soon) that has help up very well over the 4-5 years that I have had it.
Mosko products are well thought out...excellent design, quality, and fitment.
This was the winter to research and setup a replacement for the hard panniers on my BMW Airhead. After a lot of research, I settled on Mosko products. Originally thought of purchasing a pannier system but realized portability and adaptability were better served with a rack less setup. The Reckless 80 system is perfect for camping or longer touring trips where lots of storage and flexible organization is required. The included Stinger 22 acts as a standalone tail bag for tools, emergency fuel, and (whatever...) storage for commuting and day trips. Switching the setup takes 5 minutes. In either case, all things that need to be handy (but protected) go in the Hood tank bag.
Received a 2.0 right before the 3.0 was released . :facepalm: anyway quality seems good. Was tricky fitting on the bike which looks like the 3.0 resolved.
the assembly was simple, following the tutorial on you tube. I appreciated the quality of the materials and the robustness. Unfortunately, I have not yet been able to try the equipment for Covid19 virus cause. If I really have to make a ridiculous little criticism, empty bags do not keep the shape, but it is only for aesthetic reasons. Only modification, instead of the separate 20L Drysak bag I put a 60L duffle.
