There's any empty lot next to my house that I could build some jumps in, so I was thinking about getting a BMX bike to play around with.
You're smaller than a couple of guys who were doing pretty good in racing, in the 90s. Gary Ellis (The Lumberjack) and Charles Townsend (Amtrack) were both over six feet tall, and if I remember right, both were fairly burly powerhouses.

6' 3" 260 and I race Cruiser from time to time. My pal Brian Green (former east coast Expert) still races at about 3 bills on 20" and Cruiser. You may want to consider a pump track and throw a couple jumps in for fun. Just an idea.
