Welcome to the Victory Forums and congrats on the XR! Great advice to Oldman - test ride, test ride, test ride! I test rode a XC then immediately ordered an XR (didn't need tunes and such). Since getting my XR I've demo'd every bike accept the Vision (tunes again) and haven't found one that was easier to control and ride than anything I've ridden from other brands.
