Default new member in texas wanting to get a cross country

I ride a 2012 Honda sabre and have always had Hondas and went to strokers of dallas to eat lunch and went over to look at the bikes on floor and want to learn more about the bike before going to talk with dealer about the bike and get a sales pitch. i like the looks of the cross country the best. I like the fairing with radio and just the overall looks of the bike.

I just moved up from a 11 vegas to a 14 XC. I love it. For one my wife is way more comfortable. 2 I have plenty of storage space, wind shield, and tunes. You won't be disappointed!

Welcome to the forum. You're going to like it here--lot's of helpful people and lot's of people with a great sense of humor.

My new bike is a Cross Country Tour. It is significantly heavier than the Suzuki Boulevard C50 that I have been riding, but it doesn't seem to handle any heavier. It feels about the same at slow speed as the C50, but at speed, wow! It handles the turns so smoothly, and the extra power is incredible. My wife and I spent this weekend in the TN/NC mountains and everything about the bike was incredible.

Nevermind the destination, life is all about the journey

2013-now -- 2013 Sunset Red Cross Country Tour (2" pullback bars, Klock Werks Flare, passenger armrests, Dain's brake pedal, Russell Day Long saddle)

2011-2013 -- 2006 Suzuki Boulevard C50 (Mustang seat, Cobra highway bars and backrest, Kuryakyn grips and highway pegs, National Cycle hard bags)

I came off a 2012 suzuki boulevard m109r to a 2013 vic xc, I am a bigger guy too I am 6'7" 290 lbs. I love the ride of my xc I have had my bike 1 month now and have racked up almost 1500 miles so far. The power is not what I had with my 9 but everything else is 100 times better. I don't think you will be disappointed if you purchased 1
