Sounds like an awesome trip, and I like what you've done to the bike. Nothing but the basic and necessary. It will be a good test for the 1190. What does all the gear weigh?

Have you considered mounting the fuel / water containers on the front of that top box or on the pillion seat area (assuming you're riding alone) to help shift some weight toward the centre of the bike (and sliding the jesse side cases forward for the same reason)? Also, what's your plan for tires and oil changes?

Yeah, the fuel/water container location is not optimal. I really wanted to mount them in front of the side cases, but they aren't large enough for that.

My girlfriend will be joining me a month or two in, so the pillion area can only be a temporary storage location... unless I can convince her to buy a bike in Central/South America (she rides already, so not as crazy as that sounds)

The Jesse cases are as far forward as they can go while still leaving the passenger pegs accessible.

Tires and oil changes -- I have some friends in the US embassy in Panama and will mail them a set of K60s :)

While it would be highly untraditional, I actually wonder if you have enough clearance to mount the water onto the front of the blackdog skid plate though I'm sure most people here would advise against that. Do you think they're too big to undermount onto the jesse side cases so you don't sacrifice width and it keeps the weight down nice and low? I know...who wants to drill holes into perfectly new jesse cases, right?

Nice setup and trip ahead of you! I'd like to see some more pics of the Admore and Jesse setup. I have Admore lighting and Jesse panniers, though not integrated as are yours. Sounds nice.

You're going to love South America! I don't know what your time limits are, but, IMHO, get off the PanAmerican Hwy as much as possible. I spent 2 years riding in Central and South America and can't wait to return.
