Re: Royal Star - 1200 LT Handling Comparison?
Having owned a VSTAR and ridden a friends Harley,
The handling while moving down the road is completely different, in a good way.
The LT is by far the best luxury touring bike around.
With that said, myself and some others have gone from the LT to an RT because of the LT's weight and slow speed handling.
Many others will say its not a problem and you'll get used to it.
I was always able to manage, but never felt comfortable at slow speeds.
The RT isn't as good for two up as the LT, but, to me, is no less comfortable as a solo bike, and much more so at slow speeds.
Go to a dealer, and take the LT, RT, and GT out for a test ride, and then you'll know which one is right for you. Them BMW dealers actually let you take them for a test ride. That is somewhat of a rarity these days.
Enjoy the hunt
