Well, it doesn’t feel like big guys are discriminated in the motorcycle world. They just have difficulty in choosing a bike that could endure their size.

A bit patience and a big guy motorcycle will carry you down the highway. Just get familiar with this guide.

What’s special in a starter tall guy motorcycle? In simple terms, it comes with already spacious ergonomics. Well, if you are lucky, a bike for big guys will immediately fit your size. However, in some cases, extra modifications might be required to have it properly customized but there’s nothing extraordinary in this fairly simple procedure.

The first tall guy motorcycle we are going to consider is the Honda CB500X. As a rule, it’s available for $6,000. This bike boasts spacious ergonomics and as for its overall dimensions, they are quite manageable. Only the motor will be a bit limited by the weight of yours. The suspension is where the biggest limitation shows up.

If you are willing to ramp up damping rates in the unadjustable forks, it makes sense for you to utilize heavier oil there. In order to maximally increase its preload, reach out to the dealer. You can hardly do it on your own as it’s very hard to adjust it. In the worst, case, you will have no choice but to have this stuff rebuilt to fit your size.
