Can I have some help please

Hi there im wondering if anybody could give me some advice,

My little brother has just got into bmx this last year,and he asked me if i would take him to some cool places to ride so i agreed to taking him out to bikeparks/dirtparks etc every sunday, but as im gonna just be bord stiff watching him ride all day i have decided to get a bmx too as i used to ride when i was younger.Im now 23yrs old 6ft5" and 16stone(of muscle), So ive got the dilemma of what bmx to buy that can take my wieght, does anyone have recomendations of bikes that would suit my size that are really strong, I dont really mind about price as long as i get a good strong bike.

Any help much appreciated

P.s Am i to old,big and heavy for a bmx?

If you want beef and dont care about price S+M or Standard. Dans Comp good place to get it if no locals have. I have seen big dudes on BMX. Look at Robbie Morales.
