First real road bike purchase

Hello, I am somewhat new to road biking but I do a lot of mountain biking. I am looking to complement my Mountain riding with road riding. I am allowing a $2500 budget and was wondering what your thoughts were on the Specialized Tarmac. I am 6 foot 3 inches and around 200lbs. I would probably need a 60+cm frame.

Thanks

I see you've asked this in the Road Cycling forum as well--they are the experts on the Tarmac, I'm just good at saying hi! You could also ask in the Clydesdales/Athenas forum--that's specifically for larger riders (including people over fix feet tall).
