2018 Voyager 1700 - Scrapping boards
I currently own a Yamaha Vstar 950. I find i drag the boards frequently, particularly when riding 2 up going through traffic circles.
I have read this particular bike is one of the worst.
I am seriously considering buying a 2018 Voyager 1700. Looking for a bigger bike with more power, hopefully more comfortable. Though not sure how much a difference the leg positioning of the voyager will differ. And more luggage space.
I was wondering if the Voyager 1700 would be better in terms of scrapping. But when i look at the ground clearance, it has less at 5.1" than my current 5.7". Would that not suggest less lean angle, more scrapping?
How do you find out specs like lean angle, turning radius etc???? I want to compare various bikes Goldwing, Venture, Electra Glide, Voyager 1700 all vs mine. I know the Voyager 1700 seems like the best bang for buck, but it is so much cheaper than the others, i wonder if it just a inferior bike? I know it has many less features vs Goldwing and Venture, but the Electra Glide? I read various reviews and some suggest the ride is more comfortable on Voyager, power is similar, features similar so are HD that much overpriced??
I don't want to buy something even though it is quite a bit cheaper only to in a few years wish i just saved more and spent it on one of the other bikes.
Maybe I'm asking in a biased forum??
