V Star 950 Cornering (Drag Floor Boards)
So, i'm not sure if it is just me, or this is just the way the 950 is designed.
I was out on a ride with my club on Sat. Four bikes. Two Harleys (don't know models) and a Honda Shadow 750. I was following the pack.
I found they were taking the corners a little fast. In some, and in particular Round a'bouts I was dragging my boards where they appeared not to be. Now i was taking the same line as they were, and nobody was doing any hanging off, just sitting upright.
So i started to question to myself.... Am i doing something wrong, since I was slowing down more to take the corners to avoid dragging the boards.
Now i don't mind dragging the boards now and then, but i don't want to be always pushing to perhaps the limits???
So, my question is.
Is the V star 950 just that much less clearance than many other bikes in that the lean angle would be much less? Thus taking corners should be slower than many other bikes?
Is there something I'm doing wrong?
