    You can emulate this by setting the seat rise high enough to lift the rider well enough off the seat.

    I have a feeling this might be a litte dig at my passenger request:Dsome of us do ride with our wives(or whoever)in my case all the time.
    A passenger ergo would be an enourmous help.
    If your post wasn't directed at me,I apologise profusely.:D

    I've made an update that sounds simple but is worth bumping this thread: images are no longer centered on the seat by default. What this means is that comparing motorcycles is much more effective now. Previously as you switch between bikes, you'd see the entire bike shift due to a differing seating position or seat height. Now the bikes will not shift (unless you opt to center on the seat via the checkbox) so you can more easily see the exact differences between two models.

    Here are a few examples of interesting comparisons to try now:
    Aprilia Tuono V4R vs RSV4
    BMW F650GS vs F800GS
    Suzuki SV650 vs SV650S
    Triumph Street Triple vs Daytona 675


    Also comparing ground reach of different bikes is easier now as a result.
