Welcome, your going to like your XC. Post some pics of it! I started on a cruiser a few years back and thought about jumping to the sport touring side (liking those FJR's) but figured a cruiser with a bigger motor might keep me happy for while.

I wish I could have kept my ZX6R and my Hammer but I had to move on, my zx6r used to whisper to me to do stupid shit and I figured being 37 and a father of 4 I needed to make it home everyday so my switch was
a family one... I love my Hammer but man do I miss my zx6r...
