Hey, MC - you probably do not realize that you are starting another religious war here. Tires, oils and batteries: people are ready to brandish their torches and pitchforks to defend their opinions!
I am sure a lot of others will chime in here (Odyssey seems to be a popular after-market brand).
Here is my out-of-the-beaten-path take: as far as proper motorcycle-type batteries go, I am having a good experience with Westco. I use that brand on my GS; the battery is purchased from Beemer Boneyard (by the way, as an LT owner, you should know of BB - good people for maintenance parts, like filters, oil, sparkplugs).
Now, on my touring bikes (K12RS, two LT's) I have been using industrial gel cells for many years. These last about 3 seasons for me and are quite inexpensive. I started with Panasonic LX-X1220P batteries from DigiKey, but now their shipping is very expensive and recently I installed a PowerSonic PSH-1218NB.
Food for thought, works for me - Your Mileage May Vary.
