    The BC 35 on my 09 690 a few years back:

    I love the convenience of being able to take the bags off the rack in a matter of seconds.
    The BC 35's are huge! They hold a lot of gear. They were in my opinion to big for the 690. To wide and sitting to far up on the Tusk rack.

    I sold the 35's, altered the rack for the bags to sit lower and now have first generation MM 25 liter Scouts on my 690.

    Great points here. I use the R80 almost exclusively and have found that having a rack system is definitely more supportive. I have followed others using the R80 without side racks and can see exactly what you are referring to. Sounds like you, like many others here, are crafty and skilled in creating different solutions to fit your needs. I would think that even a bracket that acts as some sort of stand off would work :scratch Maybe not a full rack system but something that keeps the bag from flopping but also has some support...:hmmmmm

    The rally lizards were met with normal desert conditions of blowing sand and dust. That didn't keep them down!

    The end of another awesome get together. Rides happened, stories were told and memories built. Most important, everyone experienced the special camaraderie that events like this and and all the people who gather bring with them.

    Yes! Exactly! I had one of these on my KTM 525 and it worked great. However, it does not fit all applications, but that is what I was referring to. Thanks for the pic!

    '17 Husky 701.
    Vanasche side racks.
    BC 25 or 35 mounting plate.

    Perfect fit.
    Thanks MoskoMoto.

    So I have a '17 GSA and a 701. I have BC 35s on the GSA and R80 on the 701. In light of recent comments above I'm thinking of fitting racks on the 701 and using the BC35s on both bikes.
    Given the perceived resale value of V2 R80 I should come out a few $$$ ahead. The BC35 is easier to work with than the R80, pack, unpack, more capacity (which I don't really need) and would make it easy to load a Rotopax on the 701 which may be nice to have some days.

    Good idea? Or just stick with what I have since I already have it?

    My 2 cents worth...
    The BC35s can hold lots of stuff and they are definitely wider than the BC25s.
    The subframe and associated racks on the 701 may need to be considered when loading that baby up.
    I'm carrying 4 liters of gas each side and some dog treats and clothes. Each one of my BC25 loaded is 21Lbs.

    You’re welcome, it works really well with the setup I have at the moment. I went a different rack on my 525 without the side protectors so that will take some other things to figure out.

    Hi Moskomoto,
    I've ordered a scout 25 duffle on 23/5/2018 and it is still showing as unfulfilled. I've tried to email but haven't received a reply. Not sure what's going on as I've received prompt responses in the past.
    Hopefully we can sort this out.
    Cheers,
    Andrew.

    Received my Nomad tank bag today, excited to get it sorted out! Looks to be built really well with lots of storage! It doesn’t fit the shape of my Super Tenere tank perfectly but I think a little fiddling will find a happy medium! My old tank bag was a Givi Tanklock which I really liked but it was just too big and got in my way when standing and maneuvering rougher terrain! Thanks for a quality product at a good price, maybe a set of your 35L panniers will be in my future! 42EE5CE3-DFF9-4BDE-A2E1-8309E5E8E3BB.jpeg

    From your picture, it looks like you have a lot of space to move it forward if it gets in your way. I bought this bag for my WR250R, and it just didn't work for me. The quality of workmanship was superb, and it had tons of organized storage, but it really impeded my ability to stand in technical terrain. I ended up selling it and buying another smaller bag. Given the right bike, I'd buy it again. I wish they'd design a smaller one for dual sports/dirt bikes... *hint *hint

    Mosko defintely makes great products. This is evidenced by the fact that I had absolutely no trouble selling my bag at minimal loss. All Mosko products sell extremely fast here for not too much less than new bags.

    Would love to see extensions offered for bikes like the F800GSA

    They are easy to make. Just be sure the material that you use is capable of some stress so the T-nuts don't tear out.

    I plan on working out some ideas when I get a chance and see what I come up with.

    Does anyone have some pics of their Nomad on an F800GS - or a link back in this thread somewhere?
