Coming from a LT as you are you might want to go with the GT rather than the RS. The GT will give you more of a LT feel and the heated seats, electric windscreen and better riding poosition could be important to you as you get familiar with the bike.
I have a 2004 GT that I added a bunch of items to it to increase storage (jumbo side case lids) and comfort (Russell Seat with heat and driver backrest) among many others. The net result is I have a bike with a lot of capacity, great for two-up touring and when I take the bags off I have a sport bike.
However, either choice - I'm sure you will be happy as the K1200 RS or GT are great bikes :-)
