LARGE shorts.

Hi all, new here. I was wondering what types of shorts the other large cyclists here wear. I'm about 300 pounds and getting back into cycling after 20 years off. I should have my new Trek 7.3 by early may (Thank you layaway) and hope to commute back and forth to work most days thus spring/summer/fall (40 miles round trip). I'm just looking for what cycling clothes I can get to fit now. Thanks for the help.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I've got Performance Bibs, Sugoi Bibs (Knickers), Aerotech shorts, all of them are comfortable.
