You can with Wolfman panniers and they have a large snap link in the middle. The Enduristan should be even easier.

Aren't you guys worried about the exhaust on the right side? I have not tried my wolfman bags yet, but I know that they would hang too low and get burnt... I hope thos enduristans are the answer, has anybody tried them on the 1190?

Giant Loop sells heat shields that would protect soft bags.

Replacing your can with one that doesn't have a cat inside would also make a big difference.

I ran Wolfman Expedition Panniers on two 950s (SMR & Adv) with no problems.

I did ran the wolfman on my 950 with no problem at all as well, but on the 1190 with the hepco beckker rack, I think they will lay on the exhaust that would burn them. if you have the TT rack I would think they would work fine as the exhaust would be on the inside, but now your bike is wider on one side...

In my post before I also linked to an album with the Enduristans on the 1190.
Also, Enduristan just started selling a heat shield.

While the OEM exhaust may get too hot, the CAT is not in the exhaust. It's in the bulge in the pipe under the swing arm. Aftermarket cans use the OEM CAT unless the exhaust pipe is replaced.

Do the OEM cans still get hot?

Stock cans on my 950s were way over 100 degrees F.

The OEM can will get hot although not like the 950's did, they were a major cause of Global Warming! Stainless just retains a lot of heat, in the 950 they had the cats in them but on the 1190 the cat is under the motor. My Wings Ti shorty will get very warm after a ride but not anything like the 950 OEM's.

Then you'll need heat shields in order to use soft bags.

What is the best top box or rear bag for passenger comfort? Most of the top boxes I see, they look extremely uncomfortable. Perhaps a foam pillow between or maybe even the back protection integrated into her jacket may make it adequate. Or maybe a soft style bag?

Anyone have any experience with passenger and top case comfort? Preference?

Thanks!

I just ordered a Jesse top box with backrest pad. I'll let you know if the passenger likes them when I get a few miles on it.

Panniers, how big?

For those of you that have hard panniers what size do you prefer?
I'm trying to decide between the 38L or the 45l Holan's. I'd like to maximize volume but I'm just worried the 45's will be too bulky.
Any thoughts?

Eric

Just food for thought Eric. When compared to the Holan black 45l/38l kit from Advmotorrad
The Jesse Bags are narrower (<38" vs 39.37" ), 105l vs 83l capacity, adjustable fore and aft 5" and cost only $20 more. Delivered in three days for $40. No backorder.
They weigh right at 30# including rack.

No, I don't work for Al Jesse. Never met the man. But he builds a good product.

As for a top box, I have never liked them. I do however really like my Wolfman tail bag. It actually holds quite a bit when packed right. I am jonesing for a Maxpedition bag something fierce and hope to get one later in the spring.
