I got a mug.
If you're looking for mirrors check out Doubletake mirrors. Ned Suesse, neduro on here put a lot of time and effort into designing them. I have them on 2 bikes and they're better than the stockers.
+1. I destroyed my stockers and needed new ones. I checked the price on the stock mirrors and then on the Double Take. The DT mirrors were cheaper and are much nicer. I have the new coffin-shaped ones and they are awesome.
Reckless 40 - need underneath protection ideas.
Looking for any advice on how to protect my R40 from the bottom. My bike has relatively bulbous rear side plastic panels for the exhaust and tool box covers which means the stiff-backing of the R40 holsters tend ride on top of them on relatively small contact points. A short 2 day trip started wearing the material at those contact points - I can see a hole easily developing if I don't do something about it. Already had duct tape on the plastic panel to protect it...
Anyone have similar issues? ..... maybe attach a foam donut to the side panels?
So, last November I wrecked my Moose Racing tool bag. I knew then that Mosko was coming out with a bag so I decided to wait...and wait... and wait. Then I heard Mosko was coming to the DV Noobs ride, woo hoo. Well, maybe not, though Pete let me check out the proto he was using, they had none for sale. So I waited, and waited...you get the idea. Then...Happy Father's Day to me. I am the proud owner of my first (and not likely to be the last) Mosko item. The roll looks and feels fantastic. Can't wait to set it up. Thanks guys for taking the time to do it right...well worth the wait.
I used tenacious tape to cover the wear points on the backing panel. Mosko suggests a "sacrifice patch" like this that will wear out instead of the bag.
Tenacious tape is the stuff you use to repair nylon fabrics like ripped puffy coats etc. It remains to be seen how long my patches last, but at $8/roll, I'm willing to replace the patches a couple times a year if need be.
If anyone can suggest a beefier solution than tenacious tape, I'd like to have the information as well.
Maybe this stuff. It can be had cheaper elsewhere I think.

Thanks guys.... I do have some Tenacious Tape - good idea, and it's adhesive should be a lot better than duct tape which turns to cement and cruds stuff up. Gorilla tape may also work, it's pretty thick and with seemingly non-crudding adhesive too. That helicopter surface guard looks awesome too - 8-12mils thick versions.... I need some of that for headlight protection from roosted rocks. I've used Snider's Paintguard (from Aerostich) on gas tanks for a long time, it's 7.5mils thick but only a static cling.
OK, off for some experimenting, appreciate the ideas.
I would take some 1680 Denier, cut patches to size you need and attach with 3M 90 spray adhesive.
+1 I actually added a few shop towels where the leg bends come into contact with metal racks or plastic side panels. I also put some gorilla tape down further where the legs come in contact with different parts of the bike. Definitely protect the base of the harness. Here is a video Pete did...
And Brady just wants to be rubbed on...to heck with the video!
Any images of the Nomad strapped to a GSA? Tiffany has me on the list when they come in, but am wondering about the fitment on the 16' GSA. I love my Scout dry bags, so expect the quality is similar. thanks.
I saw something either in this thread or somewhere else about how to put in some extra straps on the reckless 80 to prevent it from moving sideways. I tried searching the thread without success. Is there anyone that can point me in the right direction?
Whatever you decide to use as a protection layer, first put down a layer of painters tape. That comes off *really* easily, and in one big sheet if you overlap it correctly.
Hey guys, might be interested in selling my Touratech rear rack and Wolfman's for a R80 kit.
Now my concern is the heat shield.I know the kit provides one,but will it be enough for a stock F8GS exhaust once the rack is removed? We have a huge water tank on this bike.
Also, I know the R80 kit can be reversed for better fitment and to clear the gas opening.
Is it me or do you lose the pillion with the R80? I don't think the rear portion of the seat is available anymore?
Everybody likes to rig there stuff differently. I thought I would share my set up, in case it gave anybody ideas.
After years of "stepping through" between the handlebars and a tail pack, I decided I wanted to try to skip the tail pack and be able to swing my leg over even when fully loaded. Backcountry panniers do the trick for travel with all the stuff.
I tend to ride to a destination, unload most of the stuff, and then do day rides around my base camp. That means I like to have two set ups, all the gear for travel, and a light set up for roaming around. If I want to take my tools, wet weather gear, and cold weather gear, I need about 20L on a light day.
To stay away from the tail pack, I split the 20 L into two 10 L Tracker bags. To mount the where the panniers usually ride, I bought 2 molle drop leg panels. The picture is of a drop leg panel in a lighter color so it's easier to see. Then I added a strap between the 2 panels to take the vertical load. Molle sticks to connect the panel to the Tracker and a couple of straps around the Backcountry mounting wedge and Tracker to hold the bag laterally and that's it. It works great and you can throw the whole rig over your shoulder if you need to go somewhere without the bike.
Of course, when I load up again, the Trackers get Molle'd to the front of the panniers and the drop leg panels ride in the beaver tail. The only challenge there is that the molle panel on the Backcountry wasn't really intended to carry something as fat as a 10L Tracker, so the compression straps are a little short, but I get by. I may put an extender strap on the compression straps in the future.
I have an enduro looking soft saddlebag I can unload. Pm me

Pretty sure you just described the utility of the new MM Scout 25L Pannier Kit - that I'm waiting to order...
Here's a quick write-up on the first-ever Mosko UNRally (just 'The UNRally' going forward).
Ash and I are headed up to Plain, WA tomorrow for the Touratech Rally this weekend. Hope to see some of you there!
The UNRally was and is an experiment in intentional disorganization.
A few weeks back, a group of us met at a GPS coordinate in the desert. Camps were set. Beers were drunk. Fires were lit. Motorcycles were ridden. Hot springs were soaked. Music was played (loudly). Sunrises were stayed up for. We left no trace, and we all got covered in dust. Our intentionally disorganized experiment proved that a non-event event isn't just total nonsense, it's also science. Ask a scientician.
THANK YOU to everyone who risked life & limb and traveled great distances to make the first-ever UNRally happen. So many stories... I couldn't possibly recount. The deer, the red van, the blood brothers, the neck, the muddy jeep, the BMW mudslide, the sailcars, the sunsets & sunrises, the afterparty. Word's can't express.
Jesse Felker tells the story with his pics.
We have four founding principals for the UNRally: 1) Spell Principle Right, 2) Active Participation, 3) Leave-No-Trace, and 4) Self-Reliance. Next year we're adding a fifth: 'Everyone is Invited.' Which is not to be confused with 'Everyone Can Attend,' because we have to arrange for porta-potties and dinners, and besides, we're not trying to have this be some big thing. 'Everyone is Invited' simply means that all active participants are welcome, regardless of their riding ability or Myers-Briggs personality indicator. Except that INTPs are definitely OUT (just kidding... that's mine).
Next year Andrew will pioneer a "quiet camp," which will be located a sufficient distance from the fire and speakers, so anyone who wants a good night's sleep can get one. There are no 'quiet hours' at the UNRally, but there are plenty of quiet places to sleep. This year might've been a little short on sleep for some.
We're also un-branding the UNRally by removing the 'Mosko' name. Going forward 'The Mosko UNRally' will just be 'The UNRally.' This gathering has nothing to do with promoting the Mosko brand, selling bags, making money, or accomplishing anything even vaguely commercial. We're definitely not 'working' when we're there. If you catch me running around the desert with a clipboard, please swat it out of my hands.
Big thanks to our friend Woody for making a fire happen in the middle of a desert. Also, big thanks to the entire team at Fields Station general store for their support and delicious food.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Yes, similar concept. The Scout is lighter and very flexible to use. As I see it, the differences are in volume (Backcountry plus Tracker is 45L per side available. Scout plus molle bags is 28L per side), width (I think that the Scout with molle bags and dry bag is wider), and weight (Backcountry is clearly heavier). I think the Scout is an excellent system. I was ready before it was and wanted more volume, so I went Backcountry. If I were getting the Scout, I would definitely get the molle panel option. I think you will love the flexibility it offers.
