How To Install the Tusk Highland Rackless Luggage System

RM YouTube Channel


    The Tusk Highland Rackless Luggage is made of heavy-duty nylon, polyester, and TPU materials to make it ready to withstand any adventure you want to embark on. The Highland bag is the largest rackless bag we offer, and it’s easy to add to and customize the setup for your specific storage needs. This pannier system is ideal for larger adventure motorcycles but can even fit some smaller dual sport motorcycles. It must be used with a top rack, but its greatest feature is that it does not require any side pannier racks. The 5 heavy-duty nylon webbing straps allow for quick and easy removal of the entire bag system from the motorcycle, making these the perfect setup for your adventure or touring style. All of the Tusk Dry Duffel Bags can work with the Tusk Highland bag system.
  • Quality rackless, soft pannier bags built for touring and adventure riding.
  • Designed to work on motorcycles without pannier racks, but a top cargo rack is required to secure the bags.
  • Durable construction and materials that feature Duraflex buckles, heavy-duty nylon, polyester and TPU.
  • Roll top design on the side bags.
  • Removable Tusk Defender 25L waterproof inner bag liners included (one for each side).
  • Hole cut out for KTM 690’s and Husqvarna 701’s to allow for easy fueling of the rear tank.
  • Heat shield comes included
  • Straps are replaceable.
  • Reflective Tusk logos to increase visibility at night.
  • Multiple molle webbing panels for optional attachment options.
  • Rear compression flap keeps tail bag secure and features internal webbing attachment points and an external molle panel to secure additional gear.
  • TPU reinforcement for abrasion resistance.
  • Dimensions of side bags: Length: 11", Width: 8", Height: 15" (but can be taller due to roll top). 25 Liter capacity each side.

This is nice
I love this luggage system. Just took it on its first adventure and it did excellent. In the past with other luggage I would have to stop and check to make sure everything was secure, but with this system I had no worries. Everything I take with me fit nicely . I had to make a couple of brackets that mount to the foot pegs to secure the panniers but that was easy enough. The only issue I have is that you can’t pack the dry bags full and simply put them into the panniers. It just doesn’t work. You can put a few things into the dry bags and it will go into the panniers but not to much. It’s not that big of a deal but something I did experience. Overall I love it. Great product and can’t wait to go on more adventures with it.

Excellent Value!
Purchased the Highland system with the accessory bags and 22L duffel for my 2018 WR250R. Fit and finish of the bags is excellent and they should hold up great although only time will tell. I run a Scaggs large top rack and this system does seem to be for a bike with a wider tail (see the photo showing the arch above the seat) but will work just fine on smaller dual sports. Lots of strap length to work with no matter the bike, just be prepared to trim off the excess. Last thing would be to watch the install video as the instructions are pretty weak and really only cover installation of the t-nuts. Apologies for the sideways photos!

Other than being $160 less and holding 10L more, how does this bag hold up in durability to the Mosko Moto Reckless 40L system? Asking because I was seriously considering that one, but I had such a good experience wit the Tusk panniers and racks on my last bike that it's hard to pass up.
A shopper on Mar 21, 2020
How well would this reckless system work on a DRZ400S? Will the weight of the side bags be a problem?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I took the plunge and purchased these for my DRZ. Yes, these Reckless style bags will work for the DRZ but there are some caveats. Firstly, it wont work with the Tusk rear rack. That's too wide and wont allow the highland to seat correctly. I'll be returning the rack. Next, these hang lower than the Reckless and tieing onto the rear pegs wont give enough tension. The only other spot on the left side that I found works is down to the frame just in front of the gear shift. On the right side, tieing into the brake master cylinder protector plate is good, but its sharp and will damage the strap quickly, I'll be adding a bolt on strap loop. Otherwise, I think the weight is ok, and the bags themselves are really nicely made with high quality fabric.

A shopper on Mar 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Can you please specify which size you wanting the weight of?
