I'm a big guy. I ride a sport bike. The other day a friend took a photo of me while on my bike, and I realized that I look like a tool on a sport bike. But, I don't really care. If anything, its good incentive for me to get back on my diet!

Any other bigger sport bike riders out there?

I'm fairly big, but I ride a sport touring bike. 5' 11' and 250lbs, but my bike is huge for what it is, so I'd say it fits me :p I'll have to snap a pic to see what I really look like

I'm far from big(160 soaking wet at 6 ft tall) As long as your feet touch the ground your cool. I saw a guy on a cbr 1000 that must have been over 350 lbs and his feet barely touched the ground. He was on his tip toes trying to stop, it looked stupid...the guy must have been like 5"3

Just reminded me of a guy at work he is a huge black guy about 5'6 300+ lbs he rides a 83 Yamaha sport bike (not sure of model) but it is kinda comical to see. But alas I am one to talk I am 6'2 340 and am looking to buy a ninja 650r

I'm not large myself at 150 pounds and 6' in height, but I don't laugh at people who seem "big" on their bikes. It's all good in my book as long as aren't 500 pounds and riding a Ninja 250... now that might look awkward.

lol man that is so bomb! ahah!

its like one of those clowns on a small 2 inch bike! ^^

i no mean to offend this guy, but still funny :coffeescreen: ...at least he has the guts to ride right!? (i know people who are around 250 in water weight, so they look bigger than they are, who wont ride a motorcycle till there 150...it es sad...)

but hey, im more muscle...just got the belly and the legs of a bigger guy :D

Here's the photo of me:



I mean, I guess I don't look THAT bad. Luckily I'm a short guy, so I only look a bit too round for the bike instead of too big, haha. Still, it's good motivation to lose some weight. :)

I guess I can rest easy in the fact that I look like less of a tool on a sport bike than a squid in a wife beater and flip flops does!

you dont look to big on that thing at all IMO...(every1 used to seeing those squids with bony legs n whatnot on the sport bikes is why i think bigger guys seem a little awkward :p)

what IS funny to watch...is the bigger guys mounting their sport bikes! ahha...my mom recorded me getting on mine for the 1st time...i couldnt stop laughing :biggrin: :coffeescreen:

6'4 270 or so (264 this morning wearing my "birthday suit"). Ride a ninja 650R and have no problems. Going to have to get my picture taken on the bike at some point.
