    When I started reading this thread it was 348 pages, I have just finished going through all 349, it's been a long week fitting that in around 12 hour work days 7 days a week. My boss is ready to flatten me:lol3

    Great to see the whole evolution of the story and the full story explains what is for sale on the website at this moment and I'm on the list for a Nomad.

    It amazes me how many folks have 690's too and there is certainly a core of customers who have been on this thread from the beginning who amaze me at how quick they can pull up random posts from the depths to answer new questions.

    I'll probably have to wait until RTWPaul gets to my house before he starts the TCAT before I get a chance to get my paws on some luggage for my first look but I'm looking forward to it.

    No surprise MM hasn't made it to the Toronto or Atlantic shows yet but I have some ideas. I was a sales rep for bicycle/outdoor stuff in a past life and might be able to help.

    They hired a new guy, he answered my emails last week but I have to say their system needs a few tweaks as it copied the same conversation 3 times.

    Hope all the MM crew is having a great time in the desert today! :D

    Cheers
    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Wow...that's committing for sure! This thread is awesome and another major reason for Mosko's success. Say hi to RTW Paul when he get's there...and play his favorite song...Red Solo Cup...:jack

    Thanks for being patient with our recent changes. This part of the shoulder season is a bit rough with shows and product coming in. We'll get some things ironed out and most important get this new product on it's way!!!!

    Has anyone mounted a Backcountry 40 on a dirtbike with a Reckless 40? I can see a couple ways of doing it, on top of the Reckless 40 Beavertail, or open it up and wrap round the Backcounty.

    It looks like getting hold down points to strap the Backcountry directly to the bike may be tough but there are several ways I can figure out how to mount to the Reckless, one would use Molle Stix on top of the side bag or use a carabiner, the other to loop the straps around the strap holding down the dry bag.

    Any ideas, pictures would be welcome.

    Ashley at 52.35 in this YouTube video of Overland Expo? ...

    I'm almost certain it is her.
    More Mosko stuff featured after that, just in panning shots.
    Nice WR250R featured too ... but I am biased as an owner of one ... with a filthy v2 R80 on it at the moment.

    Hmmmm...either of the BC Duffles on the Reckless 40 is a bit too much for that bag. If you must have 40 liters, I would suggest the Scout 25 Duffle or another larger bag from Sealine or Seattle Sports or something like that. What dirt bike is this going on? Here are a few examples of different set ups on different bikes...keep in mind some bikes have rear subframe support...

    Thanks - I got things set up on my CRF230F, it just took a little bit of looking how to do it.

    I removed the aluminum bar and adjusted the lower mount point on each side and then inserted the looped end of a Rok Strap, slid the aluminum bar back through and closed up the velcro. On the tail, I undid the strap and worked the other loop of the Rok Strap through then routed the strap like normal and tightened it up under the Beaver Tail. I closed the Beaver Tail and set the BC 40 on top, routed the Rok Strap and tightened everything down.

    I started looking at the straps on the ends of the BC 40 and on the right site I undid the lower buckle that is used to connect to the waterproof bag and routed that to the buckle coming down from the top of the bag and then connected the waterproof bag buckle to some other one I can't remember. This was great, front to back secure and lateral secure so I started on the left side and no buckle love. The lower waterproof buckle on the right has a male end and connects to the female on the BC 40 just fine, the left side lower buckle is a female end so can't use it to connect to the female end on the BC 40, I am not sure why the two sides are different. I am sure I can come up with a solution but things seem pretty secure as is.

    The BC 40 probably looks big on a smaller bike but I bought it so that it will also work on a bigger bike I have yet to identify or to commit to buying.

    The bag is 100% over the subframe so no worries there and there is plenty of room for me and I have to move back from normal seating position to hit the bag. Right now they look full, that is because they are stuffed with towels and a big winter sleeping bag to dry fit on the bike. My ultralight backpacking gear will go in on Thursday and total weight (I weight 168) will probably be 30 pounds depending on how much water I load, so not adding a ton of weight I just wanted more space to take a chair and some shoes and a coat.

    How is the Nomad installed: 2 rear straps to frame/subframe, 1 strap around front connected on both sides?

    I only saw one of the prototype models at the shop, but yes that was the basic idea.

    I'm hoping to get a 30l duffle for a June 8 DAKAL ride. Think it will happen?

    Doesnt look like it, here is the most recent email from Mosko.

    "Wanted to let you know that the Nomad Tank Bag, Fatty Tool Roll and Backcountry 30L Duffle haven't arrived at our fulfillment center yet. We will have this gear quality checked and ready for purchase by June 5. I will email you again when it's ready to buy, just in case we can do so earlier thanJune 5. As for the Tent Pole Bag and the new Scout Pannier v 2.0, those will be ready the first of July."

    Which bags are you looking at? There are plenty of options depending on whether you're running racks or not.

    We stopped by the Mosko Moto World HQ yesterday, after a great weekend at the UnRally.

    Speaking of the UnRally...
    Thanks to Pete, Ash, Andrew, Lee, Tif and Chris for putting on such a great and immensely enjoyable weekend. It was more about community, friends, drink, good music and freaking big bon fires every night (thanks Woody!) than motos.
