Test Ride=Bring Checkbook. FWIW the XCT pulled the wife and me off an 08 Wing with 130K and change on the clock. The honeymoon was dismal, but now things are warmed up pretty good.
If you go the XC route, and think you may want trunk, opt for the Tour. More than a trunk and some lowers and the trunk comes off with no tools and a couple of minutes per the folks here. I've ridden with one for so long it is a part of any ride I would be interested in.
