Honestly I've been overly impressed with mine. The more I ride it the more I like it. I could use more hp but that's just me. If I had the budget id go all out on motored stiffer suspension and big brakes. But I'm super happy with the bike as it's become my favorite. One word the buy an Xct and ditch the trunk. Itl cure wind buffeting plus get a lot of extras standard like heated seat and grips bag protectors and Mutch needed lower fairings

What experience do you have with other bikes? The pros and cons of a XC or XCT is best done when compared to other rides.

First step: Sit on one and ride one. See how it feels to you, how it fits you. See how it handles.

For me, I gave up a GoldWing that I'd had for 10 years. The Cross Country is more comfortable for me than the Wing. Also, I was looking at the HD Ultra Classic. I felt slightly cramped, and my foot kept getting caught by the factory heel-toe shifter.

I'm averaging about 44+ according to the lie-o-meter. I have never actually measured it.

i check my mpg almost every tank , the majority of my riding this year is short trips to work and back, 12 miles to work, 18 back, so mpg has dropped to around 40, but if i can get more miles in a trip, like last summer work trips were 40 miles each way, averaged 45+ mpg.

:crzy: Does your house move while you're away?

I'm just messing :ltr:

I get about 42 MPG at 80 MPH all day. Headwinds will push me into the high 30s. At 65 MPH I've gotten awful close to 50 MPG more than once, but I ain't pushing a fairing on the front of my scoot, either thumb up

When the humidity and dew point drop down into the low 60's your mileage will change
