I have ridden 1200F but I don't own one. There are 2 or 3 people that have made the swap you are interested in, and at least 1 person who currently owns both IIRC.
CT is more lively at low revs, which I prefer in real life riding. You mentioned you ride 2 up, which I assume involves some touring. You will find CT somewhat better for the purpose, I have ridden over 900kms in a single day on it and wasn't dying to rest when I returned home.
I cannot un-recommend CT to anyone, as I think its a great bike overall. But each to his own. You will have to test it for yourself, sir, but my guess is you will like it if you can get it for a few 100 kms run.
