I think a 14r would be perfect for ya.
A lot of big guys around here ride and love those, hell I love them too, but for me they're a little too big being I'm 160 soaking wet haha. I ride my dad's every once in awhile since he works a lot and that thing is tons of fun.

haha, no starbucks but has been a gym model. I bought this one a year ago and it has a little over 400 miles on it. The 13 i had before had around 3000, the 3rd gens I had I rode the wheels off them.

Not sure about the 14 though guys, I like the looks and ride of the 10, its just uncomfortable. I was dead set on getting a street glide but I cant justify that amount of money for the amount of riding I do.

82 GS450L- Bobber Project
06 636- Sold
07 R1- Lost
08 zx10r- Lost
09 zx10r- Totaled 8/3/14
07 cbr600rr- Track - Sold
12 EX250r- Womans - Kissed a guardrail
13 zx10r- Old street - Sold
14 SSR Lifan 180cc Pit Bike- Fun machine
15 zx10r- New street

I see em all over my local CL. Now, they are all around 06-08 or so but prices are around 5-7k$. Doesnt seem bad to me. Most i see look clean with add on's. This one might not be but its also the lowest price ive seen yet. Just sayin.

TBH especially when I was younger if I did any sort of weights or anything to do with using upper body strength my arms and chest would just pop!I felt so uncomfortable wearing shirts and everything just felt tight I wore!even now if I'm chopping wood and doing work around our property using my arms they still do it!I often look at the body building guys and notice they are very stiff even walking around!for 1 I can't stand lifting weights and never could!the 1 form of excercise I really enjoyed was swimming!I used to swim with a squad doing 4-6.4 kilometres 5 sessions a week!it strengthened and shaped my upper body but I felt so flexible and fit!how do you feel with the size you are now?

Juice if you really weigh 270lbs than the only choice is to be riding a sport bike is a ZX-14R....it has as much as 110lbs of torque your typical 1000cc bikes only gets 80 or so ft/lbs of torque at their peak a 1441 does that in only 4k rpms it's MONSTER!!!......why do I need torque Bloo....because it drives in low RPMs weight...and the advantage unlike Harleys the ZX14R still has high HP and a fairly high RPM limit not to mention it's very roomy for long distance....Get the ZX14R you will not be disappointed

Juice I lost about 50lbs too if you do this mod....bike is very light now and if you consider the hp 200+ and other advantages it's worth it.
