OK knee bend I'm keeping at the new method where 0 is straight. So the new values are 180 degrees minus the previously-displayed values (e.g. 45 degrees is now 135 degrees).

Awesome!
Maybe too many variables would be needed, though I am thinking only knee bend deg, but can you do an option for standing on the pegs?

Head's up: when I implemented the separate manufacturer and model list, I missed a bug. When comparing two bikes of different manufacturers, when you switch between they'll get set to the same bike. I'll fix it tonight.

I am scrolling back and forth from a Yamaha super Tenere and a Suzuki V-strom 1000 and I think I can see why the Tenere supposedly has a lower center of gravity.

Just wanted to say that th epool is great, Tahnks.

This site needs a section devoted to real motorcycling resources, and a link to this tool needs to be in it.

Do you think you could add something where you could move your ass back and forth a bit. I was almost shocked to see myself sitting on a 1200 GSA, since the graphic showed up sitting completely upright. I realized that the model is sitting much closer to the tank than I do.

Arm length might be helpful as well. My 37" (shirt sleeve length) arms have me sitting upright on a lot of bikes that someone might be hunched over on.

Useful program though. I'd prefer it lie to me though, and make me think a S1000RR would be really comfortable.

Updates! I just spent a lot of time working on making multiple-bike comparisons more intuitive. Since the site is getting much more attention now, I was worried about people not understanding that they can compare muliple bikes via the mouse scroll wheel. So now I think it's much clearer. I also improved the site's look slightly, positioned the angle read-outs better (in my opinion) and added the bike's name to the image, which makes it easier to realize what bike you're currently at when switching between them, as well as being useful when saving the image.

Inseam?

Almost to embarrased to ask but,is inseam inside of leg to floor,or as measured for trouser length.Us short arses need all the help we can get.
Also any chance of passenger fitment.
