I wish you luck with your book but you'll get a thousand different answers from the forum guys. You're the author, pick the bike and make it work. I'm 6'3" 235 pounds and ride a Harley Sportster. Speaking only for myself I feel the bike fits me like a glove. I love it and the only thing I'm going to change is the horsepower. There are many bikes that could fit your scenario, if it were me, I'd be doing some research and make an intelligent decision as to what bike you see your guy riding.Hello Gentlemen, and Ladies if you're on here too!
I'm an author working a book set here in Australia, and I wondered whether any of you biker boys would mind answering some questions for me?
My main character is a young guy, 6'3 in height and a fairly decent build (not overweight, but rather well muscled, if any of you have seen the TV show Supernatural think Sam or Jared Padelecki) anyway I need advice on a bike big enough to fit this guy. I wanted something modern-ish I was thinking a Triumph Tiger? Only because I saw one recently and thought it might be tall enough to fit my guy.
I'm completely in the dark when it comes to bikes, so any help you could give would be very much appreciated!
Thanks everyone, hope to hear back from you soon!
I think you look fine from either angle... huge guys on little bikes only look a bit off from the side in my opinion. From the front or back doesn't really show.6'4 260-270 LBS guy on a Ninja 650R
Hastily taken, low quality pics.
From the front, not too bad.
From the back, I make that thing look TINY.
