    @windblown101 that UP looks beautiful. Love to get there one day. Looks like you're creeping along on the other side of the lake ;) Are you heading up to Mn and then west?

    Yep. Will be making a beeline for the Blackhills over the next few days. Almost took the northern loop around Superior but opted to hit the UP again this year.

    Ran into a couple riders from Montreal yesterday that were taking the northern route then heading to BC before dropping south. May rin into them again in Idaho or UT.

    What bag is that behind the 80 on the tail of the rack? (The slender one)

    Enjoying your pics. I did the upat a few years ago and loved it.

    Looks like a Kriega 20 or 30L. https://kriega.com/sports/touring

    If it is, here is what the Kriega R20 looks like on the 790:

    Kreiga 20 liter. I keep my tools, tubes, and misc stuff in it so I can strip off the weight and bulk of the Reckless 80 when I'll be base camping and riding trails for a day or two as I go.

    New efficient front guard.
    And yes, I know, the top case is ... big, but I need it.

    Hey Reg.
    That's the Reckless 40 V.2 base with a Stinger 22 on the back, Enduristan 4X up front. This gives me Roughly 52L total excl tankbag.
    I've attached the stinger behind the 'Beaver tail', and use that space when needed, i.e. extra food / trash bag from camping etc.
    Moving the Stinger behind the beaver also frees up some more space to scoot back my ass on.

    Time to mount etc is low, nothing special just a couple of straps, all good.
    If you do some zooming, you can just see that my lower straps disappear underneath the subframe, I removed my passenger footpegs and fastened one of the included eyelets onto the crossbrace (have a look at your bike and you'll understand)
    moskoeylet.PNG

    Packing is a little tight when the gear is all new, the inner waterproof bags are almost the same diameter as the holsters, to it takes some tugging to get them all the way down when they're fully packed.

    Quality; Amazing, couldn't ask for more.
    Had a laydown doing 60-ish Km/h (40-ish mph) onto hardpacked gravel, the 790 crashes like a champ, and so does the R40.
    As a reference, my Klim pants tore from the slide, but the R40 only got some minor scuffing.

    I came from a Kriega US30 setup, and the Mosko is just way better IMO. No flop in the lower corners of the legs, it just stays put.

    Hope this helps.

    May just be the angle, but I can't see any holes for ventilation in your crap flap.

    *Just glad no hikers are reading this, they'd think we were on about long johns with all this crap flappary chat. :rofl

    790 standard front guard. And no, you must change the side fork protections to standard ones too. (you can see they are too short)

    You can't see holes because there is no holes in a zinc plate coming from my last roof repair. :-)

    Why won't the R fork guards work with the low fender ? Could an adaptor be made to line up hole locations or is it a clearance issue ?

    The low front fender has a hole and is screwed to the vertical protections. May be there's a way to use the R ones, making a hole. Difficult to explain in english, sorry.

    You explained it perfectly, thanks. Your English is much better than my French :-)

    LoriKTM back in da house! Been, what, almost 10 years since I've had a KTM in the garage. Now it's his & hers 790s. We've been away too long, but glad to be back. :clap
