Well, there's an XR in my stable right now and my wife has been doing some serious looking at a Kingpin and it'll be her next bike. I've ridden a KP quite a few times (was looking at one before going with the XR). If you're looking at something long haul, it sure fits the bill without being a full dresser. Very comfortable, great handling, tons of storage, etc. The main reason I went with the XR is the bags "fit" the bike. Anything aftermarket on the KP didn't work much for me asthetically. I'd put the handling and comfort of the XR above the KP, but I wouldn't say it's "leaps and bounds" (and that's only my opinion). I'm about 6-2, 215 with a 32" inseam if that helps.
