I presently ride a 2008 Kaw Vulcan 2000 and have been thinking about trading on a new Wing.



I'm more interested in touring now and that big bike wears me out on long trips.



Is long distance riding on the wing as comfortable as I think it should be?

Has anyone out there put on drivers floorboards with the rocker shift? If so how do you like them.

I own a 1800 two wheeled Wing and a 1800 trike, the trike has floorboards and a heel toe shifter. The 2 wheeled 1800 doesn't. Personally, I like both but didn't put it on the two wheeled Wing because I hated having to put the floorboard up to put down the kickstand. Obviously, the trike doesn't have a kickstand!

It really just depends on what you are used too and personal preferences.
