Re: Passenger Comfort
I ride mainly 2 up. My wife has ridden on the GW, Venture and RT. The Venture is closes to the HD I would guess. But I think what matters more is how tall is the wife. My wife is 5'3" and petite. I am only 5'8" and wide (so to speak). She likes the way the bike fits her.
All the other bikes she hasn't liked. To much wind, to high, to small of a seat, to much noise, and so on. I think it is just what she got use to. I have put another windshield on to help with wind and have a heated seat to help with cold. She has armrests but doesn't like them and wants me to take them off.
What is funny is the group we go with, all the wives like what they have I guess. I think it is what they get use to.
So what am I saying, buy what you want and tell the wife to shut up and get on the back. If she isn't happy about it then she doesn't have to go. (another plus)
OK, had to say it I hope my wife doesn't read this. The real truth is, If the wife is happy everyone is happy. If she thinks she can be happy on the LT with some changes then I would go for it. If she really likes the HD better then I guess you will have to learn to live with a HD.

You have to grow up to have a mid-life crisis!!!!!
I could play with women or with cars, I find cars are cheaper and you can write a book about cars a guy would understand.
