    Rode my old Honda VT1100 ACE to work today for a change...

    It feels like a little Manco Minibike compared to the XC!!!


    Sjust sayin'.

    I am cheating also, been riding the VTX1800 the last few days. Makes my XCT feel like old station wagon with a straight 6.

    I would love to have a Rebel or a XL883 for a "City" bike to play on. almost bought a Kaw BN125 last week for that reason. $50.00 a year insurance and 70-80 MPG and tons of grins.

    It may be faster but the seat on the VTX is brutal on the butt for a long day's ride. It's a bar hopper. Period.

    Not mine;yes the stock seat sucks that is why I have a Corbin on it andI have done many 1000 days. I am liking the stock seat on the XCT, Victory kicks Honda's ass in that area. Do not get me wrong I really like my XCTit is just not the power house that my VTX is and I when i jump from one to the other that is whenI really can tell the difference.

    I actually like the rebel. Does anyone know how much it would cost me to own one? I expect to pick up my new Vision in the next week or less but for short drives that Rebel really appeals to me.

    I currently have my 07 Yamaha Roadliner up for sale. When I first took if for a ride this spring I was reminded of the gobs or torque that motor makes, an amazing motor in the Yamaha. I love every part of myCC better: ride, suspension, handling, and so on. That is why I bought it last summer.

    Whew! I thought this thread was about illicit extramarital relations on a motorcycle. Thanks for clearing that up!

    My "other bike" is a High-Ball and I don't think the XC is too concerned, at least I haven't seen any sign of it.
    One observation I will make, the XC feels absolutelysluggishafter getting off the High-Ball! I don't know if it's all because of the lighter weight of the High-Ball, but it just feels a lot more powerful. Having said that I would always choose the XC for a long ride... and I really do love her!

    I have a 1200 Sportster that gets some love every now and then. The Sporty has no windshield, no cruise, no floorboards, no nothing, but is the essence of motorcycling.

    '13 XCT, '14 Indian Chief Vintage

    I had the same thing last week. I couldn't believe how small my 9' chopper felt after riding the XCT for a month, and narrow too. I forgot how hard it was to turn with the 300mm tire. I had fun, but holy cow i forgot how to ride it quickly.
