Akalaka mounts for Mosko Moto/ Atacama luggage

Came across this to mount the mosko moto bags to the OEM Racks and not have the plates on the bike when the bags are not being used.

But at $699 just for the mounting plates its daylight robbery......my feeling!
I have a buddy who can probably try to fabricate the plates......can anyone help with the latch (Part Number) which these guys are using.....its the OEM BMW latch for the Aluminum panniers

$699 just for the plates?!?!?!? That's just outrageous. I'll take the 10 minutes or so to remove the plates and mount the hard panniers. I don't think there is ever a case in my life that I need to be able to switch panniers so quickly that would justify that price...

IMO, it also adds bulk and weight to the Moskos which kinda defeats part of the purpose of going with soft panniers...

You may want to take a look at https://www.advmotorrad.com/luggage/...dventure-racks For $699, you get Bumot Xtremada Soft Panniers and their quick-release mounting system that's located under the grab rail.

Even if one has to do it as an OEM project would not be more than $300
