storm

The only thing small about the bike is the seat height. I'm 6'1 220 and the bike fits me well.

Have you been on a T-Bird? It's an ideal bike for a big guy. Next step would be Rocket or maybe a trike!

Perfect for big blokes.

Õ am 6'3"and weigh 118 kg or about 260lbs and the bike is perfect for me. I have the T bars which I find suit me and my preferred seating position.

One guy is 6'5" and he says it's not 100% ideal, but it's close and he has no real problems. He did put drag bars on tho so the bars are more forward.

Big foot here (one complete cow per boot). 6' 5" tall, 265 pounds and the Thunderbird 1600 fits me well. I do have the long haul SE seat and footboards. This is a great bike for folks across a very large range of sizes, it is amazing to me this bike fits so many people. Plenty of power to haul you around with ease, and a reasonable price for the bike. Glad I bought the Thunderbird and enjoying it to no end.
