    Great app. A RC8 would be great as an addition.

    Thanks for sharing your application. I always thought it would be great to have a way to compare riding positions on different bikes, and your program does it perfectly. :D

    Forgot to ask: Any chance you could add a few more models:
    2010 Kawasaki Z1000 naked
    2011 Kawasaki Z1000S faired
    2011 Triumph Tiger 800

    It would be great if you actually added a model request link right on the model comparison programs main page for anyone who visit the website from elsewhere on the web. Thanks again, awesome job!

    GREAT!!!! :clap

    I would love if you added inseam input as well! Since that's a major concern.. I can only ride about 2 of the bikes in the list. (can you add the Monster 696?)

    Being able to see the stick figure with the legs down instead of bent would be awesome too!

    I'm going to be playing with this thing alllll day! :lol3

    A small request for a DR 650 ( or is the drz400 close enough? )

    Thanks great app.

    I already added those two. The latter is labeled as "Ninja 1000". Turns out it has very slightly lower handlebars than the naked bike but is otherwise identical.

    Thanks!

    Looking at this it's pretty easy to see why my Road King
    was good for 800 mile days while the Wee would start to
    get to my much-abused knees after only a couple hundred.
    The Wing is looking better all the time.......

    CGameProgrammer, thanks for adding the Versys, and if you're kind enough to add my two other suggestions (Yamahas MT-03 & XT660R) I did part of the legwork for you:

    Very big images, enjoy. I also have a suggestion: adding two angle readouts (maybe with a check box for showing/hiding?) - one between stomach and thighs and another on the back of the knee.

    I hope you make some money on this - it is brilliant.

    Now for the begging! lol

    Could you add some scooters? Specifically the Honda Silverwing?
    I love how I sit on it and want a bike with the same seating style. Your app would let me find one easily.

    Thanks (even if you can't add the scoot!)

    Thanks; it definitely helps me when appropriate images are found by you guys. I'll add those two tonight.

    Angle read-outs are a good idea though they're not a high priority for me yet. I think I will add them sometime in the next week or two.

    Nothing wrong with that; I'll add it tonight. Please suggest a few other scooters you think are most appropriate.

    :clap Awesome job. I like how I can swap bikes back and forth and see the difference.
    I bit more involved, but if you had an option for legs down based on seat height and inseam while stopped that would be cool. A lot of people ask about that.

    I will probably add that but it would be really inaccurate. To help nudge it in the general direction of correctness, I would appreciate it if you guys can upload side-view photos of yourselves sitting on your bikes, together with your inseam, height, and bike model and year.

    This is definitely app-of-the-year! :clap
    I'll second the Triumph additions and the addition of a variable inseam measurement. I'd also like a variable arm length too - I have a 37" sleeve length (with my 33" inseam - ape arms).
