When I go to the store, 3 miles away, I do a circle. The back way is 5 miles but has lots of curves, tight turns etc... So far the XC has out performed all my current bikes. My Goldwing comes in a close 2nd. In the slow hair pen tight turns and then accelerate the XC has it hands down. I have done some figure 8's and in line maneuvers with it and the XC's performance exceeds my expectations every time.
In fact the performance is starting to impress me now that I am getting some mileage on it. It is in the stock form as far as performance is concerned.
Yes it is a keeper
