What is the lean angle on a Voyager?

I am talking degrees to compare to other Touring bikes. Did a search and all I found is their bikes scrape before others do. Is there any difference between say a Nomad and Voyager specifically 2010 models and also a Vaquero. My 900 Custom is not cutting it for 2 up since my wife starting riding along. Probably not going touring but just need a bike for day rides to carry jackets, rain suites and few tools.

I don't know what the max lean angle is on a Voyager, but I have no issues on leaning and not scraping. whether 1-up or 2-up

Any angle measured wouldn't really provide you a solid answer. Rider weight, spring rate, speed, throttle/brake use while at lean are only a few of the factors that have a profound effect on ground clearance.

"A good long ride can clear your mind, restore your faith, and use up a lot of fuel"

"I believe in treating everyone with respect, but, first you have to get their attention"

Never be ashamed to unlearn an old habit...
