Looking for new tug

Hi all

I am considering replacing my current tug, Goldwing 1500. I am looking for  something with a little less tupperware  and a nice blend of cruiser and tourer design

I a looking at the Kawasaki Voyager and the Yamaha Venture but am open to other ideas. I haven't seen many cars on either so I have to ask if they would make good tugs.

if you have info on these bikes I welcome your input good or bad. I had the Valkyrie on my list but Jay helped me see it wasn't going to be a good choice

We have done both, and have mounts for both.  I would add to your list of requirements are steering modifications made for the bike and can you fit an automotive tire to the rear. Another bike I have always liked that we still make mounts for but no longer have  steering modifications for is the Triumph Rocket 3 tourer.

  • The Valkyrie 1500 is basically a Goldwing without the Tupperware.. cruiser and some have the touring package, beautiful bikes.
  • There's a Facebook group dedicated to the Valkyrie with sidecars.

The Valkyrie is a great bike, two down sides, they always have gotten poor fuel economy, which is not that big of a deal. However the newest one is still over 20 years old.

How about a Triumph Rocket?  I am thinking about something more highway capable than our Ural for the future.
