As a owner of a 2012 XCT, highly recommend it. The only issues i have had is the heated seats don't put enough heat out to be worth while (no big deal), but sure do love those heated grips, and the "low" setting cranks out more than enough heat.
The other issue is that it has a 5.8 gal tank, the OM says the LFL will come on at 1.0 gal, but every time I have filled up as soon as the LFL comes on, I still have anywhere from 2.0 - 2.4 gals left.
Great long distance touring bike, largest cargo capacity out there; Goldwing and Harley doesn't come close.
I'm ready to do the USA4CT in a couple weeks, and will be putting close to 9,600 miles on it, so will let you know how it fairs riding across our Great Country. Thus far, just been taking short 300-400 mile rides.
Good luck on your search, and welcome aboard. You may also check out the Victory Motorcycle Club (***) and Victory Owners Group (***) websites.
