Well, it's settled. I rode an XCx, liked it, but the best the dealer could do was $7,500 and my cream puff '13 XC for a new XCx. It was a decent deal, but over my limit on $/cost/benefit. I ran a retail computer store for years, understand margins and costs and all, he offered a fair deal. I will leave for the coast to coast ride on the '13 - though with street tires [I'm going to try the Shinko 705s] in place of the knobbies.
And I will be keeping an eye out for a good used XCx.
Sidebar: the street-tired XC models I tried had noticeable turn-in compared to the very light-touch knobbies. I will adjust to it, and then the knobbies will probably feel funny.
Thanks for the comments.
