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.”
Outstanding product! I am very satisfied with the quality as well as with the function, thanks for this sophisticated design.
Great panniers for my T7 and moto camping!
I got a Reckless 80L setup for a Tiger 900 with the intent of using the bags while exploring Washington. As a backpacker these were perfect: fit all my normal gear comfortably plus the extra I would want to have on the bike for trips like tools and rain gear, plus still room for better food -- very plush. Additionally, the bags have twice got to make the close acquaintance of the trail and are no worse for wear other than a light patina. In all of the setup, and there is a lot to these bags, I found a single fault with one nylon strap on the side of the stinger bag coming loose as the end was too close to the stitching, however that is it. Really liked riding and camping with them.
I have Mosko 35 liter bags for my KTM 1090 and love them. When I got my Yamaha T700 I wanted something light that I could easily move between bikes. The Reckless fit the bill. Light, sturdy, stable on the bike, multiple straps to secure. Very, very happy with the purchase. The only downside is that Mosko recommends using a tail rack which belies it being Rackless. But I was able to secure it in the back using the rear fender. Overall, get this if you want something that is universal and great quality.
I cannot day enough about the quality of your products. I own several and I am blown away by just how much thought and care that went into the design and engineering of every piece!
