I'm wondering if it will have ABS and cruise... I may have to upgrade. :)

So is the bottom of my boot and it's not something I'm dying to show off.
But when you do show it off, it leaves a lasting impression. :D

According to the website, neither of the 8 Balls (XR or XC) have ABS standard or optional which is a bit of a surprise to me. Even the XR Classic had ABS. I understand why they wouldn't make it standard to keep the price low but why couldn't they offer it as an add on?

Leave the "road king" look behind and stand on your own two feet. I liked the original crossroads far better than the limited edition. I felt that the crossroads when it came out was original, forward thinking and uniquely it's own.

Agreed. It was the first tour bike that sparked my interest. Then the XC and I stood up and and said "ok.. I gotta get on some male supplements cuz I must be getting old.. I love that dresser!" :)

.. He ducks. He runs. LOL!

Never cared much for the xc. The test ride I took on the xr sold me and then they dropped it for the road king look-alike. So, my next thought was kingpin, then they dropped that. The 8 ball crossroads is tried and true enough to get the job done, but unique enough in the field to stand out from the silverados/nomads/c90's/road kings. Any long distance rider knows that the practical choice is the hard bags. The Hardball was too expensive, the crossroads lost it's identity trying to play catchup with the road king.

If you want to cover distance....you gotta have cruise. Done it both ways......NEVER going back to a bike without it.

I agree. The cruise is not what sold me on my XR and didn't know if I would even use it but after a few hours on the superslab it sure comes in handy.

I like the blacked out look, but I want Cruise/ABS. So I'll stick with my '11 for now. Oh darn! :)
