Nice! Thanks for the info!
Got it! I assumed you were speaking of the Basilisk since that is what we had on display. My bad!
I received my Pinner Tool Roll yesterday. I made a video comparison between it and my Fatty Tool Roll. Hope this helps someone. Pete, et. al, if this somehow offends you, or violates some form of copyright rules/laws, please let me know and I'll make it right.
This is really useful. It’s hard to get a sense of scale on video. Both look huge on the back of your bike. Is there a significant difference between the two? I carry a relatively minimal set of tools for my ktm.
There really isn't a huge difference. If I pulled the tire levers and stand out of there it would drastically reduce the bulk.
Approximately 20 lbs depending on your pocket setup. (edited)
The pant is designed to fit true-to-size with armor, so you should be good pairing your armor pant to a 34.
For your temperature question: The majority of the venting is carried out by the zip vents themselves - this gives you a wide range of adjustment for temperature control. You should be just fine at 50ish degrees without a thermal, but this also depends on things such as how much heat your bike puts out (a KTM ADV is much hotter than a BMW) as well as it depends on what you consider to be "cold". I would suggest going for a few test rides and getting a good gauge of what setup suits you best, so that you don't get caught in the cold without the right gear. Thanks for the good question.
Thanks so much for chiming in with this comparison video @THRASHED
@Grinder, There isn't a massive difference in size between the two rolls. I'd say the Fatty is roughly 1/3-1/2 larger than the Pinner in terms of tool capacity and packed size, depending on your setup. If you want to keep things as slim as possible, go with the Pinner. If you want some spare room for more tools or extra parts, go with the Fatty. You can't go wrong either way, and I'm sure either would suit your needs just fine.
Thanks for following up with this update Wade!
Many thanks for replying Blake, very much appreciated. My concern is also the height of the MM BC35s may also foul on my OEM silencer on RH side or force the RH back to sit up too high. I'll continue doing my research though. And one of your Nomad tank bags is definitely in my future too. Keep up the great work, love your products and the MM team culture. If only you were in Australia....sigh!
ATTN: Andrew / Reckless 40 redesign team I have a request for the new R40. Would it be possible to make the beaver tail on the R40 like the R10? I think it would really be beneficial to folks who want to use a larger tailbag. It would allow a larger tailbag to hang out over the rear fender a bit.
I think you may have misread the question, he ask for the weight of the set and I’d guess you gave the approximate weight per side. Per my bathroom scale the new v2.0 of the offset panniers (a 35 and a 25) weighs 18 lbs. per “set”. That includes the external pockets that come with it but does not include the wedges that are mounted to the rack.
Thanks. That about settles it then. The fatty is probably three way to go.
Thanks Blake for your help and support. I should be good to go then. But it's probably too late to get the pants before I leave at this point. What kind of ETA if I'd call in an order tomorrow morning and deliver to NM? I'm leaving on the 26th of Sept.
@WADE-O thanks for the write up. Thinking about the jacket. Hopefully the Mosko gang wil be at the Long Beach motorcycle show again this year. I would love the opportunity to try this stuff on first.
Unfortunately, got a tube blow out and had to tow her home but the Reckless 40 looks fantastic on the Beta 500. On a bike like this, it's definitely noticeable when you put everything in there for an overnight camping trip. You can feel the load behind you.
Nice setup, Adam. Just out of curiosity, was there damage done to the bike when you got the flat? Why didn't you just swap the tube?
had a tube and tools with me but forgot a pump. The tube actually failed at the stem. Probably the place that installed it didn’t line it up perfectly and it tore at the stem base. Tire and tube installed 15 hours motor hours ago. Took it home and it’s back in business with a new tube and a bath.
What trailer is that?
It's a 2006 Model I bought last year off an inmate who had put only 800 miles on it for $350 and he delivered it up to NH for me. did some de-rusting, re-painted and re-packed bearings and it runs really well! It's pretty bouncy and loud unloaded but pulls the dirt bike perfectly. We only have parking for 2 cars at the house so the stand up trailer fits the bill perfectly.
