    • Traveling light on a motorcycle is a mystery to some riders, they think its and impossible dream and just a way to not carry the things you really need.

      Mosko Moto is a company that from day one has been thinking outside the box. Focused more on enduro style riding/ soft luggage options and showing some great durable gear that is JUST meaning for light weight packing.

      Modular in design, the R40 is a small compact packing system that is very well thought out.

      It is made up of three waterproof packs and three none water proof areas, two of the packs go in the legs of the pack and one across the top

      Coming in at 40 liters it can easily be expanded to 54 liters simply by changing out the top waterproof roll top bag.

      The none water proof areas area poclkets on the back of the legs to hold such items as tools or water bottles or ites that don't care if they get wet

      and the top small pocket is designed to hold goggles or somthing else of similar size if you aren't a google wearing

      So is it all the space you really need, possibly yes, it all comes down what you pack and how you pack and I'll show you how

      ...continued

    • Fitment of the R40 is a very simple affair, two straps at the back and two at the bottom of the legs, is the standard way to mount. I utilized the two remaining straps to go around my rack so mine is actually secured in 6 locations

      Even though the R40 is a rackless system for how i use my bike I prefer to add a rack to add some additional structure to the subframe of the bike, the one i use is a Globtrottin' version I'll talk about in another review

      If you were to run it as a rackless system as devised then Mosko Moto provides some tabs to mount to the rear of your bike

      Mounted on the bike and packed to 40 liters

      A lot of riders will look at the R40 (left) and R80 and wonder how they look on the bike, so for size reference this is both versions and both on the same bike a 2016 KTM 500EXC

      Next up packing the R40 with enough gear to ride Round The World

      ...continued

    • Packing for the long ride, it obviously all comes down to what you take, the specific gear you choose. That same one thing you pack could come from a variaty of sources.

      If packing smaller and lighter is your goal you will literally have to sit down and look at Every. Single. Thing. you pack and assess if you can find somethingthat does the same thing but small, lighter and better

      I will be adding various conversations of all my gear in coming weeks months so you can see my choices.

      ...but the basics are just that

      underwear and socks

      one pair of trousers

      one pair of shorts

      2 or 3 t shirts

      1 warm shirt and puffy jcket

      1 pair long johns

      toiletries

      first aid

      cooking gear

      camping gear

      tools and security

      and of course riding gear
