Weather protection

So here is a question.I am 6 foot 3 and about 260 lbs.Which bike gives the best weather protection,between the new KGT and KRT,assuming the LT is the bench mark.And how does it compare to the LT in protection.I live on the west coast in Canada and rain protection is always a consideration,even though I do not ride in the rain much,but I would like to ride in the cooler winter months when we do not have rain or snow.More concerned about the body work ,as i know the windshield can be changed on any of these bikes to give you the protection you want.

Re: Weather protection

From my experience there is not much difference between the new GT and RT ... the RT might be a bit more comfortable for a guy of your built.

A bad day on the bike beats a good day in the office.
