I tried all the bikes I have sat on and it was incredibly accurate. What a great tool. Thanks.

+1 Nice site.

If it helps, here's a link below to a local metric dealer where you'll find the side pics and spec's for Yamaha, Victory, Kawasaki, Suzuki (OK so victory isn't metric) if you care to build out the library.

good job and a great resource you created there!

It looks and is sized identically to the R1200R so I think that would just be clutter.

They are currently fixed percentages of the rider's height that you specify. Legs are 50% of your total height, the torso is 34% I think, etc.

I thought it was. Can you locate for me a suitable replacement image? It should be over 800 pixels wide (even though the site scales it down), right-facing, and a press image instead of a normal photograph (solid background).

That just affects how bent your arms are when riding. Set it to 100% to have your arms fully outstretched (nobody should ride like that though). 90% or 95% are probably the most typical values. On something like a Goldwing you'd probably need it at 80% or you'd be leaning back.

Outstanding work! I too think this is Intellectual material material you should protect. Sell it to the bike companies to incorporate into their respective websites as a customer help tool.

There should be an equivalent of the Noble Prize in motorcycling for such occasions.

I guess it would be cool if there was some way for people to upload pictures of bikes them selves. The issue with this would of course be making sure that the picture of the bike was the right scale in comparison to the stick rider, but how cool would it be if you could just plug in images your self, select a seat position, bar position and peg position for the rider and there he is, sitting on any bike you like.

If people were allowed access to this great tool it would not be long before someone changed the stick figure to a naked female stick figure. Then this tool would be banned!

Wow - Last weekend I rode a KTM SMT for about 100 miles. It was the most comfortable bike I've ridden. This website highlighted why. Longer leg reach, totally upright sitting position and short reach to bars. I see the Duc MS is similar, but shorter to the pegs.

Thank you! You're a Gentleman and a Scholar.

Yup, my input specs, with unchanged arm bend %, have me leaning waaaay backwards on the DRZ400SM. Looks very funny.

The pictures are actually all sorts of sizes, most 1600+ pixels wide, but they're scaled down to 6 pixels per inch by the script. The reason submission isn't public yet is I need to code up an approval mechanism - I can't have people submitting bad or obscene images or just not placing the hot-spots correctly so I also need to code up a simple way to edit submissions before approval. This is on my to-do list.

Great job!! I agree with other posters and hope you can protect this amazing little app and monetize it somehow.
