Im an inch shorter and 25lbs heavier, im in love with this thing. Coming off a 1200 sportster, i loved the riding position and the low end torque
If you can find a demo day, test it out

short answer: no, you are not -- but one of the first mods I would recommend is upgrading the suspension, which can be as simple/inexpensive as new springs and heavier oil in the forks, and an upgraded spring and valving of the rear shock

Half of my riding is with my daughter. Total weight on the bike is 300lb. I adjusted the rear suspension to 7 clicks (factory is set at 1 if I remember correctly). And we ride like that all day. Thanks to the huge torque, I barely feel my daughter is there :)
