    I've been looking for an alternative to replace the rather heavy and bulky Vario panniers for my 2016 LC GS. I'm looking for something that doesn't require ugly scaffolding on the side of the bike and I want it to be soft luggage rather than hard, especially considering that I'm looking for a lower profile fit for my luggage.

    I'd need something that can hold my clothing, (small) camera and possibly a laptop and is sufficient for 2 weeks away in Europe.

    I've specifically been looking at the Mosko Moto Reckless 80. Does anyone here have experience with this kit on their GS that could give me some advice?

    Should I go ahead with this, I'll have a set of barely used Vario panniers for sale :)

    I have the same bike. I bought the R80 V2 mainly for off-road trip.
    It can hold up more than 80L. A really well thought out quality product.
    The R80 V2 weight about 7kg and the Vario panniers weight about 14kg, that is quite a lot of weight saving there.
