My brother is going to learn to ride this year, so that he can come along on one my trips and suffer !!
but being a large fella and not like me, he was worried about what would fit him
hes as tall as a guardsman so most machines just look silly

He ought to go DAS take a short course on whatever he's given then if he's lanky take him to see some big pseudo trail toys.
Bear in mind that he may ABSOLUTELY HATE riding once he's tried it.

a honda valadero 125 or a suzuki van van 125 , honda is the talest , suzi is a good allrounder
Hes Going for a Moto Guzzi Stelvio, due to his advanced age he can do direct entry, he has had a car licence for 35 years at least
Sorry I should have mentioned that
but I am still better looking than him. although much much shorter ??

That's a good find mate, very useful, thanks.

Had a play so this is me and my current machine, looks about right.

If he,s that tall a proper enduro bike can be fun, I had an ex Gerient Jones KTM and it was that tall you got a nosebleed as you got on.
The modern 4 stroke ones are probably a bit more practical though.( and lower with no twin shocks)
