We just got back from a ride. It was 1300 km four day camping trip, with approx 500 off road kilometers. From Belgrade to Kopaonik and Pester, than to Bjelasica and off to Montenegro TransEuroTrail. After that, Bosnia and back to Belgrade. 

This was excellent opportunity to test our 1X90 product line-up

My bike was equipped with Mosko moto Reckless 80 bag, my favorite luggage system for this bike. Bag was very secure, strapped to our 790/1X90 Top Luggage rack (with additional Subplate) and 1X90 Lower Side Brackets. OEM grab handles were removed. I like to carry Reckless 80 over the passenger seat, so weight is centralized. Also, this leaves enough space on the top rack, behind R80, for a tent. Under R80, I had our 1X90 Side Carriers with Mosko moto Fatty Tool Roll on one side and Kriega US-5 bag on other side. That way, all my tools, spare tires, tire repair kit and air compressor were under the R80, not taking up valuable space in the bags. More, my Garmin Montana GPS unit was mounted on Perun moto 1090/1190 GPS Dashboard Mount and I had Bearstand installed. 

Oleg's bike was set up almost identically, except he was using Giant Loop Siskiyou panniers, his favorite bag. Also, he used generic 10 liters dry bag instead of Fatty tool roll. Using Perun moto 1X90 Lower Side Brackets really helped to position GL panniers perfectly. Also, having 1X90 Side Carriers helped a lot - panniers were resting on the dry bags and were perfectly secure. 

This way, we had more than enough room for camping gear, food, water and clothes. And more, all was very accessible and tidy, with plenty of extra room. Bikes performed great, as weight was very centralized. Also, in my case, R80 acted as cushion pillow when I dropped the bike on rocky trails (twice).
