Question Big Bikes?

Im 6' 6",300 lbs. and am in the market for a sportbike. Based on size what bike would be the most comfortable? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

im 6'1" 230 and my r1 is a tight fit but i like it that way makes me feel like im in control more... lol look into a used r6 and maybe a set of sprockets for it to make up for the weight..

take the msf class before you buy a bike......theyll tell you about the whole size, height weight stuff.

youre prolly too big for a 600 size wise, but i'm sure you shouldnt start out on one either

You know, for your height any sportbike will be a tight fit, basically a sportbike and 'comforable fit' is like superman, it just doesn't exist. But , they handle like a dream.
