Re: Why get a K bike ?
I agree with the others, the best thing to do is sample both and see which one you like the best. Many LT owners, and GT owners as well, opt to have an R bike...usually a GS.....as a second bike. That is the path I plan to take myself, my LT is the greatest for long distance Big Mile days with my wife on board, but I also want to do a little more off the beaten path exploring, hence the desire for a GS.
Depending on where you live at in Indiana, getting a test ride can be a tough proposition. I am in the northern half of the state and the closest dealers are in Indy and lower Michigan.
