Default c 50 t

can someone explain the difference between a c-50 and a c-50-t, I own a 2004 volusia limited ,I think it is caught between the intruder and c-50 era?
I found a c-50-t on Craigs List and would like a little knowledge (which could make me dangerous!)

When they rebadged the bikes on 05 as the Boulevard C50, they offered a model with stock saddlebags, OEM windshield, and a passenger backrest and called it a "Touring" model. Hence, the C50T. But it's the same bike. I believe this changed over the last year or two with a C50T being used for what was called just a C50, but IMHO that just confuses the heck out of people.

I have a 2012 C50T classic which means it has the two tone paint & studded seats that the bagger has but didn't come with the bags or windscreen. It is just a little more dressed up version of the regular C50

There was a post here a few days ago with a road test review of the two for 2013. Seems I remember their droping the T for 13? Old brains don't remember so good. I slept since then.

They did change the fender at some stage, they are rounded off front and rear.

Found out the hard way, the chrome tips/trim of earlier models don't fit.
