Silvana and Felipe are originally from Chile and relocated to California a few years ago. They ride two-up on a 2003 Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 fitted with 8″ ODYSSEY II panniers and use our lid racks to help them carry extra gear.
The couple spent six months exploring Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, and their native Chile. Reflecting on that journey, Silvana told us:
“The best places have been the roads less travelled, particularly in the Peruvian mountains. Both the dirt roads and paved twisty sections are great for riding, and the views are nothing short of amazing. There are many small indigenous villages where time seems to stand still.”
In the near future Silvana and Felipe hope to do a loop around the USA and a motorcycle adventure across Asia is on their bucket-list too.
“We chose Jesse Luggage because it’s the most durable, toughest and easy to mount.”
