I agree. I'm 6-5 and about 250 with gear. My smaller friends joke (point and laugh) at me on my 640A. I'm one of only a few that make that bike look small. If you're another 50 lbs and wanting to carry the wife and gear while still being able to rocket down merge lanes, a single cylinder is not for you.

If you want something to do that I suggest a twin. A 950 Super Enduro with SM wheels would be trick. Or a 1200GS. Any sport tourer as well.
