I got to my 2012 XCT by way of 20+ years with three GoldWings. I miss the smoothness of the Wing (especially it's tranny compared to the Vic) and I miss its better heat management. The Wings were also much less finicky about gear selection at low speeds--leave 'em in third and go from 20 to 45!
But those misses are more than made up by the roaring tons of fun I always have on my XCT. I appreciate its roominess, its handling, and its uniqueness--I don't go anywhere that someone doesn't say, "I ain't never seen one of them before. What in the hell is that?"
