I've found that actually RIDING the motorcycle tends to raise the statistical odds of having some kind of crash. It's not's WHEN.
Rear ended at a stop sign and cut off on a twisty mountain road, niether were my fault but that didn't stop it from happening. It's all in how you handle it afterward that determines if you are a rider or just an owner.

If this is your first bike, get something small(within reason) and managable to learn on. I'm 6'1" and 245, I may not know what it's like to be ginormous but large I'm familiar with. My first street bike was a CJ360T and I had a riot learning on it. Have fun, take a rider safety course and then go ride the damn thing.

Lead, follow or get out of the way!
