Simon, you can't leave us hanging like that. We need a full report on what is so great about the LT and what is not so great about all the other bikes. That's a lot motorcycle to experience in a short time.
Not sure I can answer that...I suppose it just feels so right and capable.
The rocket is a fantastic bike for a quick squirt around, massively powerful, ALWAYS puts a grin on your face the LT certainly isn't as powerful
The RT, again a brilliant ride, smaller, lighter than the LT , but I'm not 100% convinced by the air cooled engine. One of the RT's I had started to act very strange on a hot day on traffic, just didn't feel I could trust it. Of course, later RT's are liquid cooled so probably fine.
The K1600, fabulous bike (I'd certainly have another, later model) but the 2011 clunky gearbox ruined the whole experience for me.
Despite being so big, I use the LT for everything, commuting into town, going up to the shops, touring Europe.
I've always called it "the best bike in the world" and at this moment in time, I still feel it is. I love my flying armchair.
