theres two types of big here
height wise, at 6'3".. you wont have a problme.. I'm 6'4" and don't feel the need to resort to footpeg lowering blocks
weight wise, Im a wee bit lighter... around 250lbs, but I'd be surprised if you had any significant speed issues. yes you are going to be slower on acceleration, heavier (pun intended) on the brakes but the V should suit you fine. the bike delivers a claimed 59 BHP so it should be good enough for most owners purposes
if you ride in a group, say of other V's you may have a slight problem, but I doubt it.
effectively you are carrying around, say, a pillion passenger.
so the bike
will be slower to accelerate
will be slower to brake
will be quicker into the corner, and slower out of the corner
just make sure you ride your bike at the speeds you are comfortable with and I doubt you will see a problem. but if you try to keep up with the hooligan boy racers you might come unstuck if they are close to their limits, you may well be over your limits
