    Couldn't agree more.
    There is the rare extreme condition when I will find a cheap motel. Most of of the time though...you find me "Way out there".

    About the whole Mosko thing, I will say that they do charge a premium for shipping compared to other companies. There's no free shipping over a certain amount there. It cost me $35 in shipping to get my Backcountry but only $30 to get my Perun in three days none the less.

    Yeah they know what they're doing. I spent a good chunk 'o change as was like "daaamn". Then I got the cargo, and was like "daaamn". It's seriously top notch, and when you get it all shipping times and costs are forgotten.

    Yeah I purposefully got the R40 as it forces me to pack light (since I am on the big, fat 1290SAR :rofl)

    same. Although I have a dry spec 28l bag I could use up top if I really want to get luxurious. I don’t know yet that it fits nicey-nice as I haven’t even opened the r40...it’s been sitting in the shed next to the pile of parts that is my motorcycle.

    we have some movement. I was waiting on some elusive/delayed suspension components, and I pulled the plug on the unobtainium (for now) and my stuff should be on its way back next week if all goes well.
    My fingers are crossed I can make that BBA ride, if not for the weekend, than one of the days.

    Thanks. What are you strapping the 30L duffle to when you use it with the R80? Are you just removing the beaver tail that comes with the R80 and running the straps through the same buckles that come with the R80 base?

    No, that's exactly what the beavertail is primarily designed for - to hold the top bag on, whatever bag you choose. When you cinch down the beavertail on a bag like that, you will really begin to see and appreciate the intelligence and beauty of the beavertail designs on the R80/40.

    I just recently picked up an 890 rally - and I'm in need of some storage capacity. I have some mosko bc35's from my 1290 & some touratech zega pros. I was considering finding the lowest profile pannier rack mount and re-using these. Alternatively, selling them and just getting the r40 (w/ Stinger 22) or r80.

    What's the lowest profile pannier mounts - if I decide to go that route?

    Thanks!

    Well I'll admit it's not the easiest assembly. To me though...that just means the tolerances are tight and they did a fantastic job.
    On a side note...you may want to check out Mosko‘s videos for the R80 assembly. That strap you have going across the left leg holster is misplaced. May be intentional on your part...just saying.

    i was wondering about those... can’t see where they go on the install video... they’re dangling there in one shot and vanished in the next. ?

    edit: Ohhhhhh... I got it. They attach to the dry bags. Duh.
