Yes,that should fit with your body,but why not to try Road King?
I am 205# and 5'9". I own a XL1200N sporty Nightster. I feel like the bike was made for me . The only thing is, I had to add progressive 412 rear shocks to be able to ride 2 up due to the increased weight. You may want to consider this if you chose a sporty. As far as height, most sporty models have as high or higher centers than their larger brothers.
Dont think the weight will matter much but, being 6'1 myself and having had a 1200 Sporty ('95) for about 5 years I always felt a little tall for the bike. My knees were a little to high in the air so if I was you I would think at least about foreward-control.
I agree, put the forward controls on. I am 6'1" 240 and I have the forward controls on. they make all the difference, the riding position is a lot more comftorable with the forward controls.
I am 6'2" \ 230 lb. with no problems. Upgraded rear shocks Progressive 418 however.
