In early July 2017 we went for a ride through Italian Alps. Only road riding. Four days of riding through the Alps, many passes and approx. 1000 km of twisties. Weather was great and bikes were flawless. Pictures can be seen HERE. Here are short impressions about gear I used first time on this trip.
Mosko Moto Scout 25
We rented an apartment, and all rides were round trips. So I needed to carry just essential tools, spare tubes and some clothes. For that purpose, I picked Mosko Moto Scout 25 bag, on Perun moto Luggage rack with Extension plate. I am very happy with this setup. Bag fits perfectly on Extension plate and slots are very well positioned. I used Rok straps to secure the bag, and I couldn't be happier with how easy is to mount or dismount the bag. I really like this bag - material and build quality is great, typical for Mosko Moto. Size is just about right for 690 and gas cap is still easily accessible. It was very easy to remove the bag from the bag and to carry it, because of integrated back pack straps, hidden is the pocket at the bottom of the bag. On pictures bellow, bag is only half full, it compresses very nicely and nothing is loose. I will use this bag more in the future.
Moto Skiveez Adventure
Idea of an adventure motorcycle underwear was a bit funny at first. I read very good reports on Moto Skiveez Adventure, so I decided to try it out. And, to my surprise, it works really well. Comfort is indeed improved. I use stock seat on my 2016 KTM 690 Enduro, and that definitely is not best seat out there. With Moto Skiveez feel is much better and I can ride significantly longer before my butt ask for a break. Also, it feels like there is more air circulating down there, and skin is less irritated. Off course, those are not magic pants, but for those 65 USD were well spent.
