    Hello fellow riders!

    My wife is very interested in having soft panniers on her 2019 F750GS. We have looked at the Moscow Moto, Tusk, etc... interested in what you all are using, likes, dislikes... do you keep them on all the time, or only when traveling?

    If you can post pictures of your rig, she can get an idea of what she likes. So far, the Mosko Moto brand has her eye.

    Thanks a million!

    I absolutely love my Mosko Moto Reckless 80, and Hood tank bag. Super heavy duty construction, very functional and much lighter than my hard bags. Still like the hard bags for long two up rides, but the rest of the time the Mosko setup just makes the bike feel so much more nimble.

    I have a set of hard bags I use for typical commutes and moto camping where the off-road isn't so rough, but planning on the WABDR this summer and wanted to save some weight and mitigate risk for leg injuries so I pulled my Wolfman luggage out which I typically use on my WR250R. The fact that I have side racks for mounting the hard cases made this install super easy.

    Thank you for the comments and pictures... I have a Mosko Hood Tank Bag on my 1250GSA and she has a Mosko Pico Tank Bag on her F750GS... I just got off the phone with Mosko Moto... she has chosen to go with the Backcountry Panniers and the 40L Backcountry duffel. I will most likely switch to the same system for camping. I keep my hard panniers and top box on daily for commuting (large surface area so I can be seen easier).

    I will add pics once the order gets here. The pannier racks are on back order until mid-June... so, there’s that.

    Again thank you for the pictures and input.

    Cheers!

These pics show the "puck mounts" but I had not installed the four 5L external pockets yet. They are on now... VERY nice kit!!!!

    I am going to go with the Atacamas I think for my NMBDR trip. They are again available. If anybody has the BMW racks, I will offer up the adapter because I have Touratech racks on the bike now. Will update when I get around to ordering.

    What rack do you guys have on the F750GS? I am looking at the Touratech. And then may put soft bags on them, or Touratech hard bags. I can't get a straight answer out of Hepco Becker, or I would go with them. Everything they list is for the F850GS. People just can't tell me anything about the bike I have (2020 F750GS). Then I asked for info from one of the importers... and they send me info for the F1200GS. Then I asked for them to send me the actual info for the bike I own... crickets...

    K8x accessories should fit across the board. But Heatmizer I think it was said the rack I sold him required some persuasion to mount on his 850GS off my GSA.

    Touratech racks fit all three K8x GS bikes.

    That is cool and cheap! How long have you had it on your bike? Any issues? I worry about the muffler getting banged up if the rack is impacted by a fall on the right side.

    Ordered a set of Tusk soft panniers for $150 from Dual Sport Armory or something like that last night. Figured can't go wrong for that price

    The Brooks racks feelhfeel prettybpretty sturdy and have been on for about 500 miles probably. Had a few drops like this one on ice but they are usually around 10-15mph so nothing crazy. No deflection or damage from/to the racks or bike. I've mounted the hard cases and soft Dryspec D20 bags to them.

    Received the Brooks rack, installed easily, very sturdy. I'm happy with it. Only thing i did to alter it was to file down the sharp corners on the piece that connects the two racks together. I installed soft bags and felt the sharp corners might abrade the straps.
