I don't think there is such a thing as too big for the bike, however I do know on my ZX10 the owner's manuals states the rated cpacity for the bike, including both rider, passenger and gear should not exceed 397 pounds.

I am sure if the suspension was set up correctly for his weight and he was an experienced rider I do not see where his weight and or size would be an issue.

With that being said, if the suspension was not set correctly and he made a body adjustment while braking it could have had an adverse effect on overall handling and could have possible casued him to go down.
I've never had a piece of tail I didn't like, it was the woman attached to it I didn't care for.

150 is not much if she's over 5'6". Maybe the girls are lying to you, because by your statement, you wouldn't even take me on back.
<------ in that photo I'm about 120lbs (maybe more with all the leather). And I'm only 5' tall.

BUT - I have a friend who weighs in about 320+ and he was fine on his bike. He's 6'5", too - He looped the thing. All because of lack of experience and throttle control and nothing to do with his size.

I hope he's not too scared to ride again.
THIS is me on my motorcycle. Any Questions?
