I just registered but have been looking at the site for a while. My name is Jackson and I live in the great state of SC. I'm 20 years old and am ready to buy my first bike and the fury looks like a winner to me. I am just a little worried about the size of the bike and my size. I'm about 6'2" and weigh 225 lbs. Does anyone know if I would look like a giant on one?

You’d look better than 99% of all the other riders out there. The fury is actually longer than most bikes anyway. I’m 6’-2” and everyone tells me that the bike even makes me look cool.:cool:

Yeh haven't bought it yet. I'm going to the local honda dealership saturday. Only has the silver matte custom with the black rims (low $12,000's) and a burgundy ($11,500) available. I didn't really like the burgundy until I saw a few of the guys' bikes on here. I'm stuck on what color I want to get, what about you?

Im 6'3 and 235. Dont worry about how you look but what feels comfortable. I ride anything but feel most comfortable on a fury for a production bike. The steering is a bit different from a regular cruiser though and the lower seat is a little different if your already used to standard bikes.

Dude, you've two inches in height on me, but I'm over 300 pounds, and I think I look like Jabba the [email protected] Hut on my bike. However, even my most critical acquaintances say the size of this bike fits me pretty good.

To some of you that like the extra reach or comfort when riding, I will be getting some of these soon... I will let you know how they feel... after extensive testing of course :cool:

Welcome,
I live in Summerville, ride the Black Fury and LOVE it. I'm 5'6"/ 170 and the bike feels great. I agree with the other posts, if it's comfortable to you than that's the bike for you. Ride safe and keep the rubber side down!

yes, I have a "red" one #841. I got to school up there at Winthrop so I am in Rock Hill a lot. I try to ride the Fury up there when I can. Parking sucks at the school so I have not rode up there much this semester.

sorry, "got to school?" .... go to school. I am 5 11 and around 230 and I think the Fury is the most comfortable bike I have ever rode in my 20 years of riding.

Welcome to the forum! You might want to consider extended forward controls or those extended pegs redspawn posted. I have a 34inseam and I felt a lil cramped at times but with my extended forwards it feels perfect. That's just my opinion.
