This is very cool. Would like to second some 600 and liter sports bikes as well.
Triumph Bonneville and Thruxton comparo might be interesting
Great idea and nice execution.
You need to TM this.
Echo request for the Buell Uly.
Be interesting to have a 'standing' feature, to gauge proportions/leg extension with feet down on the ground.
Again, an awesome site!!!! Thanks
Thanks for adding the Yamaha's thumpers I requested. You're da man!
PS: I forwarded your app to a forum that I'm a member here in Brazil (http://www.debatemotos.com/) - I hope you don't mind! Your site may start to get some hits from Brazil...
That site is just cooler than heck!! Thanks!!
Here ya go CGameProgrammer,
Short fat white boy with a motorcycle addiction:
5' 1", T-Rex arms, 25" inseam, specific gravity @ 235+-..... (Crocks & Vespa t-shirt optional)
2008 Bandit 1250S - seat lowered an inch or two, 1 inch up / 1 inch back risers w/ modified factory handlebars (took the "wheel barrow" wrist angle out by bending the grips forward an inch).
2003 SV650 (naked) - seat lowered an inch or two, 1 inch bar risers
Dude you need to market this to all the motorcycle news/magazine sources and then do what every other successful Web designer has done - sell advertising! You deserve every penny!
Kudos, and thanx!
An excellent tool. Especially for someone tall like me who recently had a knee replacement, and can see what kind of (impossible!) knee bend might be required!
To echo other posters, displaying the degree of knee angle (those with replacements know how far they can bend by degree) would be even more helpful. Plus a few more cruiser types (HD, Victory & metrics) and some more ADV favorites (Suzuki DR650, Honda XR650L) and a personal favorite (Aprilia CapoNord (gone but not forgotten)).
Thanks much, again!

Thanks for adding the Silverwing!!
This is one of the neatest sites I have ever seen. Thanks!
Great site !!!!!!

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).
Indeed that is VERY cool
Thanks for that.
Can you add the "small" Ténéré XT660Z ?
Thanks for the good job!
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.)
Could you add the Buell Ulysses?
