    Everyone there seems to be fit and in shape. I'll offer my services of product tester for the middle aged round shape fat guys group so you can get a better feel for those who will actually be buying this stuff. :lol3

    Here's a tip for KTM 690 or husky 701 owners who need to move the R40 forward to fill the gas tank.

    I've been riding like this for almost two years with the R40 and R80.

    Though I use the filler hole in the R80 for gassing up, this system with G-hooks and Kriega loop works like a charm to quickly take the bags off.

    I also modified Perun's heel guards for quick disconnect of the lower webbing without having to slip it out of the buckle. If you crash you could bend the 'g-hook' part of the heel guard. That happened to me but it is no big deal.

    Basically with this setup I never take the webbing out of the buckles saving a great deal of time. I just loosen the lower webbing, take the upper G-hooks out and slide the bag forward to get access to the 701 tank.

    Then you can also use these instead of the Kriega loops and G-hooks. You replace the original webbing with a cut to size of these. The buckles are outside of the bags on top so that you can loosen them without taking the webbing out. Then you slide the bag forward.

    Any info on the apparel outers' material choice? Or, does that need to stay top secret for a while yet...

    Love what MM’s doing! Killer gear! Currently shopping tank bags. I currently ride a CRF250L and am afraid the Nomad will just be too big? Can anyone shed light on the size of this bag on such a small dual sport? I’ve searched and haven’t found much. I saw somewhere that a smaller bag was in the works. Can you give us some insight on the features the smaller bag will have? Clear map holder, water bladder, etc?

    Also, can the Simple Cinch Straps be used in lieu of the zip tie strap on the nomad?

    Thanks!

    I just noticed that there may be an "eVent" logo on the jacket's lower arm. Is that correct? If so, that is good stuff for waterproof/breathability...

    Was not aware that they offered an abrasion-resistant fabric though... At least not sliding down the asphalt at 50 resistant...

    eVent is most likely bonded to the inside of the abrasion resistant fabric just like when you see a goretex label on a Klim jacket. Goretex doesn't make an abrasion resistant fabric either. That seems obvious to me.

    To get the breathability performance, you'd have to go with one of eVent fabric options, then apply abrasion resistant "patches" in key areas. Then, all you have to do is make sure to hit one of those key areas if you go down. :D

    I know that Mosko was planning on having a separate rain layer, but the standard outer was also going to be waterproof. Maybe not as all-day rain proof as the dedicated rain layer with hood.

    I did similar modification to my R40 :-) This allows to slide the bag forward for refuelling whithout need of loosening front straps but only Kriega cam straps which are stitched to the rear of the bag.

    Also I have assembled 2 Kriega rack loops the the R40 bag itself which allows to connect Kriega OS-6 pack :-)

    Trying to find a good method of sewing this on..or maybe this is iron on and I don't have to? Advice would be appreciated as I don't want to ruin the bag.

    Maybe iron on adhesive tape, or Shoo Goo for a no heat option?

    Take it to your local Shoe Hospital (Cobbler) and have them sew it on for you.

    Coat the patch with Aquaseal and then stick it on, try not to put too much around the edges so it doesn't squirt out... If you get a clamp and 2 small squares of plywood you can clamp the patch in place while the bonding agent dries..

    Thinking about an R80. What are some of the proposed updates for v3?
