I also replaced the picture of the Hayabusa in case it was wrong but I don't think it was.

More bike additions will come but I'll first work on enhancements.

I'm working on the ground-reach feature now, and what I really need are side-view images of you guys on your bikes with both of your feet on the ground. Obviously only one foot would be visible but it's important that the bike be upright, not leaned to one side, which is why I suggest putting both down.

The way this will have to work is I'll have to come up with a minimum leg angle for each bike to compensate for the effects of seat width and shape. So a dirt bike might have a near-vertical minimum angle but a cruiser would have a more angled one since its seat width and dish would make it difficult or impossible to put your legs straight down.

However there really is no way for me to come up with this angle except by looking at actual photos for reference (not for each bike obviously; the same angle can be applied to similar bikes based on one reference).

Updates! I've improved the look of the stick-figure so it's thicker and not obviously composed of disjointed segments. I've also changed the color to yellow; the previous black borders and head blended into the black backgrounds of the Ducati press images and the red fill didn't stand out well enough against red motorcycles.

I've also technically completed the standing-on-the-ground feature aside from inputting an appropriate minimum leg angle (I need your inputs for this) but still need to write the GUI front-end to expose it.

I compared the images I posted with your (new & improved) stick figure. Pretty close except for leg length/inseam differnces. My knee joint is above the engine frame, where the stick figure's knee joint is well below it with a more pronounced bend in the legs. Same with my arm length.....

Soooo.... I was thinking,
you might ask that the rider to enter an inseam measurement
- or -
have the rider choose one of a few body types like maybe
a long & skinny body type, or short & fat, "normal", and a big boned thick/muscular type.

(Lemme know if those images I provided helped you atall; ....I would offer a side view with my legs extended toward the ground, but somebody would have to hold the bike up for me 'cause I come nowhere near being able to reach the ground while sitting straight up over the center of the bike....... just can't do it.)

Love the site!

If possible, add length of body broken down by legs, toso, arms?

Please add Triumph Trophy '90's - 01 version.

This is a real pleasure to check out.

Major updates! I gave the site its own domain now, but more importantly I've added inseam and the ability to place your feet on the ground (or as close as possible). Major caveats on the latter though - I had to crudely guess how much ground reach would be compromised by the seat shape of any bike, so I divided them into rough categories and basically assigned magic numbers to shorten the apparent thigh length. If anyone finds a bike they can flat-foot in real life but can't in the sim, or the reverse, please let me know.

The "suspension compression" raises the ground level to simulate the lowering of the bike that would occur when you sit on it due to the suspension. Obviously this depends on the bike, its suspension settings, and your weight. The default of 3/4" is probably fine.

I've also corrected the thigh and leg lengths. The legs were too short before because I had them set as identical in length to the thighs, but that neglects to account for your foot thickness. The lower leg combined with the foot is quite a bit longer than the thigh alone so now that's fixed. As a result, legs when riding now correctly wrap around the tank instead of way below it.

I didn't have time to add any bikes (except the Ducati Diavel) due to these enhancements but tomorrow I will add most or all of the bikes you guys have been requesting.
