Default XC or add the T

Greetings!
I have a question for the vast knowledge and experience of this forum.

I'm looking at adding a bagger to my garage, and am looking at the XC or XCT.
Question is, I much prefer the current color options on the XC. What additions are made to the XCT, and could you do them aftermarket on the XC.
I know there is the obvious of the tour pack, and I know that can be had afterwards. Otherwise the only real addition I saw was the heated grips/seat.

What am I missing?

The tour comes with the lowers and tour pack. If you had to buy those and have them painted it would be more than just going with the tour now. I believe there is more added to the tour but in my eyes those 2 additions for the difference in money would have me on a tour. No questions asked.

As has been posted, there are a LOT of differences between the CC and the CCT. If at all possible, I'd go with the CCT as it's the best bargain in the line up. Clearly I'm biased towards the CCT as I bought one last year. I wanted the pearl white one so my dealer found a new, zero mile one at another dealer and had it sent over for me.

My initial thought was I'd only use the trunk when my wife would be going with me. In reality, I've never even attempted to remove the trunk as it's so very convenient having it mounted. We ride a lot in many weather conditions so the tall windscreen, the trunk, the heated grips, the heated seat and the lowers have all been greatly appreciated.

All the best,

Mark

Agree with all above...
However, if the color is not available in the XC, then you can add stuff as you wish. If you don't need a trunk, you can save ton and get the other stuff a LOT cheaper than a paint job.

I can't see needing a trunk unless going on a MANY day trip. The stock bags are huge. The trunk also adds extra weight up high to a bike that is somewhat "tippy"(IMHO) by nature.

Buy one with the color matching trunk. Yes it coast more now but it fits and doesn't look like a after though. get quick detach hardware that way it takes minuets to take off and put on like five minuets.
Where you live lowers and heated grips would let you ride earlier in the year and later in the year. Ask about unlock gages.
Someday your going to want to sell it. Do a search there are dealers that have new 13 still on the floor.
So with all these features it will make it more desirable for another buyer.

Thanks guys, appreciate the info and advice.
For those that ride often with their SO's, how is the comfort of the pass backrest vs. the tailpack?
Honestly the main reason for the tailpack would be the speakers and backrest for the wife.
Lowers I'm indifferent about (I'm coming off a sport bike, what is wind protection?) and the heated grips I'm sure I can add after the fact.

I really like the blacked out look on the Red, white, or Titanium XC, and not a fan of the T offerings. I'd really love to find one in the burnt orange!

I don't know about the backrest on the XC or XCT. I have the XCT so have no need for a backrest. I did swap with a friend who has a Street Glide with a backrest and I asked my wife how she liked the backrest and she said to never swap again that the trunk was so much more comfortable. That is all I have to offer. On a side note my friend is looking closely at the XCT and Vision (his wife liked the seat and trunk on my XCT a lot more).

I think bama has hit the nail on the head! If your wife gets the feel of the of the trunk rest, she will probably never want to go with just a backrest. If you never have a trunk rest, she'll never know what she's missing
