As some of you know im a big ass dude. (6'7" 250lbs) What is the biggest bike that you can think of? i.e. Wheel base, seat height etc.

^^^^^ I agree with these ^^^^^


I have sat on some BMW's that seemed tall and had good seat positions, probably the only thing I remember about them. I'm 6'3 and thin but I cant even amagine what it's like for you to get comfy ! :nuts:


If you ride in the dirt = KX 500 :rock:

I'm 6'3" 220 and my strom fits me perfectly. The BMW GS is a monster also.

Me too. But since you are even bigger than I am and I look like I'm humpin a football when I'm on that bike......I suspet you wouldn't look any better. Not to mention that it isn't that comfortable for tall people.

All of Buell's bikes are pretty small compared to other bikes. I'm 6'2" with a 34" inseam and I can -barely- ride an XB without doing the frog-sit thing.

How long is your inseam, anyway? That's pretty important for a bike.
A Hayabusa with a taller aftermarket seat or raised subframe, and pegs off a Buell (easy swap, lowers peg height nicely) will seat someone with a 36" inseam easily and a 38" inseam reasonably.
Handlebars and you're gold.

if you are set on a Buell look at the Uly....it's a tall bike with good room for someone like you. It handles VERY well also.

i'm 6'4 and 240 lbs. and the strom fills the bill for me. i sold my two brothers to another guy for his strom and he was at least 6'7 and waaay bigger and he loves his strom. the goldwing is a big bike but when i rented one in arizona i was let down by the knee room (hit the fairing and vents). and it sort of kept my legs angled in the same position. i like to move around a bit on the bike. however the goldwing had the best seat arrangements by far for comfort. my ass never hurt.....ok insert comments here :D

FJR1300. Awsome bike. Good power, roomy, comfy, and lots of neat touring add ons that are actually useful. I'm 6'1" with a 34" inseam and that thing was great on a long haul. Did about 1500 miles on it one weekend. I was sold.

Next fighter needs to be my size, I can fab a bike to fit me just fine; hence the CBR f2 however i look like a fucking giant on the thing.

BANDIT and FZ1 are nice bikes but there are so many fightered i need something different. Most of these big bikes look like a nightmare to fight. Big ass tail sections and radiators and what not.

Who the hell said GOLDWING, isnt this a Fighter site!!?? Oh thats right people have actually made goldwing streetfighters. Goofballs

what about the buell xb12?? i love that bike.
The best thing I can say regarding a Buell is go test drive one. even the XB12ss which has the longer wheelbase is still a small bike in comparison to others. Its a great bike though but I'm biased haha. I have the XB9cityX and absolutely love it but I'm not that big, 5'10 155.. My cousin who is 5'10 225 said he felt to big on it and went with the 2003 SV1000 naked which is a nice bike. A dealer by me has 3 Brand New 03 SV1000 nakids sitting in the crates.

I'm tall myself. when I'm on the Gixer I look like a dog humpin a football.
But the bike that fits me BEST is one of the old Target Katana....
Like the one in my Avtar.....
