You're about my brother in law's size. He's 6'4", an undetermined and undisclosed amount over 400 lbs. He rides a 06 Heritage Softtail Classic and quite honestly, He makes it look like a minibike but he is very comfortable on it, even with his wife on back.

You could always go for the big dog.. Honda Rune. That's one huge bike.

I dunno what they are thinking on that rear fender shape. They could at least match the wheel shape and diameter for the fender cut out
