    I'm 6'3" and 230lbs (17st).....The only big bike that should be readily available for rent in BKK is the Kawaski 650 Versys.....this bike is very big & fits me perfectly. Plenty of leg & arm room for you big fellas with pretty good handling & touring capabilities.

    The harder to rent exotic stuff like Ducati's, R1 & GSXR racing bikes are way to small IMO.

    Having hired bikes in Thailand really pleased with the Versys and I'm 6 foot and it was v comfortable to ride i went from Chaing mai to Koh Chang and all you need over their,the newer the better and all normal safety checks before you hire :)all advice is on the site which I have used extensively when I come over from England each year.
    Safe riding
