That is a pretty cool site. I like that you can add/subtract bar risers and see how it changes the lean angle on your upper body.

Great site, thanks for posting.  

I can attest for the site's accuacy.  At least in regards to my ability to barley touch the ground with both feet on my bike, it looks right to me.   Lol

I like the way you can scroll between the bikes & impose the bikes together so you can see approximately the difference in sitting position on each bike.

Click on the "Request a new motorcycle or scooter" link above the picture and ask to have it added.  I asked for the K1200S and it was there just a few days later.  The bigger the data base the better.

I asked for a Concours C-10 and he added it within a couple of days.

Ran across that site the other day.  A good tool for a guy with short legs.  I've been wanting an adventure bike, but that tool made me re-think that decision and I am starting to lean back to a bitter ST bike.

There was a post several months (or more??) ago with a website that offered a graphical image of you on a bike.

You change the bike, rider size data, and it illustrated you on a bike.

Can't remember the website name, can't find the post.

Help??

I have some serious doubts about the accuracy of that site.  Apparently the sprint GT and vfr1200f will kill your knees exactly the same ammount as a GSXR1000.  Of course, why would you want to buy any of thoes bikes when you can buy a ducati 1198, yamaha r6, or daytona 675 and get a bunch of extra leg room!
