Re: What bike most compliments an LT
No one can tell you what you'll like, but we can share experience, so here's mine. I have 3 bikes now, the LT, a Yamaha FZ1, and a HD Softtail Deuce. Had the HD first, then the LT, and went looking for a play bike. I really thought the BMW RT would be it until I rode one. Surprised me to no end that I didn't like it at all. Bummer.
Rode a Triumph Tiger and absolutely loved it. Everything about it just fit, and it was right there in my comfort zone. Did some checking, and found that you can put on an aftermarket exhaust, which would then allow you to run the more spacious side bags of their other models.
What I ended up buying though was the FZ1. Makes no sense, does it? Well, it was that comfort zone thing. The Tiger was comfortable, but I wanted a challenge. I took an FZ1 out and it scared the crap out of me. Those suckers are fast, and corner quick. It took me about 300 miles of riding before I could scrape the pegs on it, and it was a blast. Were it not for wanting to challenge myself, I'm certain I'd have a Tiger now.
And what's really odd, is that when I want to go for a day ride, or across town, I'll always take the Harley. Can't explain it, but I really love that bike.
Guess it all boils down to what it is you want to do, and what it is that you like. I'll say this too: I really do like the Harley as a bike. What I can't stand is the Harley mentality, and thus most Harley riders - the ones in their little pirate outfits. 'nuff said.
Good luck in your search.
