The 80-liter rackless luggage system is a well-designed universal fit bag with an overwhelming number of options. But it comes at a cost, literally and figuratively. It’s the most expensive soft luggage I’ve ever used, and the hardest to install. It took me two hours to assemble in total. This is no big deal if you plan to leave the system on one bike, but if you will be moving it from bike to bike often, be prepared. Mosko includes all the necessary hardware and an allen key to snug up the nuts. They recommend using Loctite on the bolts, which further suggests keeping this system on one bike.
These bags are rock solid with no flapping around. The cradle—as I’m calling it—stays mounted to the bike. When you get to camp or a hotel, you can remove all five bags from the sleeves so you don’t need to unpack in the parking lot. If you need even more storage, there are D-rings and extra straps everywhere to add more gear.
The bags look great, especially if you are going for that tactical look. You could mount just about anything to the outside of these bags, including more Mosko Moto bags.
This setup is ideal for the fussy packer and less so for the “throw everything in a duffle” type. During my trip, it rained hard, there was dust, and there may or may not have been a tip-over and the bags handled it all 100%.
