    So just to confirm, no plan for attending the Toronto or Montreal show this year? It was great seeing Andrew last year. Would have love the chance to see the Basilisk gear in person.

    That's right - the Vancouver show is the only Canadian show that we will be at this year. Sorry we won't be closer!

    Thanks for the shout out @Emgo!

    Appreciate it @Blake D. We are currently working on racks for the 2020 KTM and Husqvarna as well. Would love to get some Mosko Moto bags on these to try out!

    Mosko Moto, are you going to attend MBE in Verona, Italy, like you did last year?
    If yes, any chance to see there your apparel?

    We will be there, but unfortunately will not have apparel on hand as it is not yet available in our EU warehouse.

    Question for Reckless 80 users. When traveling (and not camping), do you leave the system on your bike over night an just remove the bags or remove the whole thing? I will be doing a trip this spring but a few nights will be in a hotel. I'd rather not remove the whole system and take it inside. I know I can get locking straps but that seems a little cumbersome as well. In the past I usually removed all soft luggage, but I had hard panniers as well so all my tools and support gear stayed on the bike.

    What do you do??

    I just remove the bags, and have had no trouble with sticky fingers so far.

    Depends a lot on the area that I'm in. Two weeks in Baja I left the reckless on the bike and just carried in the 3 dry bags. All of our hotels had pretty secure parking. When I travel in the US I bring the whole set up into my room.

    The norm is to remove the dry bags from the system, leaving just the harness on the bike (an empty harness isn't very appealing to an opportunistic thief).

    If it’s a secure area I leave on the bike. If I’m not sure, I take it in. It’s real quick to remount.

    I have left them on the bike at hotels. I was in a sketchy area and left them on but had the bike as close to the hotel wall as possible and behind a big 4x4 truck. They have never been bothered as far as I know.

    Just mounted a Nomad tank bag on my Moto Guzzi Stone. The supplied mounting method wouldn't work for my bike and I opted for looped-end straps to pass through a couple of frame points on either side. I couldn't source a buckle locally that was compatible with the Mosko ones, so Pauline sent me a set, which worked like a charm. Mahalo!

    You might be able to run straps under the front edge of the seat with the buckle sticking out in the front. I've done that and it works great.

    Motorcycles are weird and what I mean by that is that if you're not sleeping under your motorcycle, anyone with a socket / Torx set can remove your wheels, brake calipers, shocks, exhaust system, seats, handlebars, windscreen, battery, chain, sprockets and on and on. They can quite literally tear your bike down to the frame in 8 hours.

    I lock my hard luggage and for soft luggage my BC35s have handles so I just slide them off the pucks and bring them in the hotel with me or I'm sleeping next to my bike and don't care. I've never had anything stolen off my bike before. I've ridden for 4 years with a rubber chicken hanging off my boxes/bags and no one has ever stolen it. I figured Chicky would have been stolen a long time ago.
