V-Star 950 Floorboards and shifting
So, my wife and I took a new (leftover) 2014 V-Star 950 out for test ride and ended up buying it today. Will have it home in the next week or so.
This will be the first bike I have ever owned with floorboards and only second one I have ever ridden with floorboards (other was HD Fat Boy). And first one ever with heel/toe shifter. Anyway, one of the things I noticed is the lack of space between floorboards and front shift lever. Was wearing tennis shoes for test ride, but normally wear a boot of some kind and looking at getting a pair of Joe Rocket Big Bang boots and don't think the toe of that will fit between floorboard and front shift lever to upshift with toe.
So, how do you guys, with larger feet and OEM floorboards shift normally? Can you fit a booted toe up under there? Or do you upshift by stepping down with your heel on the back of the heel/toe shifter?
All thoughts appreciated. Yes, I know I am a newbie!
