I currently own and ride both an LT and a 1150RT. While they are different, I don't find one more comfortable than the other with regards to leg position. (I have a 32" inseam and size 10 feet). I'm relatively thin (170 lbs 5' 10") and in good physical condition. I'm stating all of this so you have some reference for comparison against yourself. As far as handling goes, the RT is much better in my opinion and a lot easier to muscle around at slow speed.
YMMV so, if possible rent or otherwise ride an RT for a whole day to find out if you would like it better.
