I just graduated and am looking to get into riding bikes. Back in highschool I rode an old 81' Honda 4-stroke that got ruined in Katrina flooding. I rode that bike around the neighborhood and through some light dirt trails for a few years worth of afternoons. I laid it down several times on rocks and mud, but never injured myself. I am torn between going straight to a Harley Fatboy or getting something a bit tamer/lighter to start with. I am 5' 10" and am heavyset (fat and muscular). I am not really concerned with an inability to manhandle a large machine. I know most of the people on this board are sport-bike fans, but am looking for some input. Thanks.
