Awhile back someone posted a link to a site that allowed you to see how you fitted different bikes.Leg,back angles etc.Could someone post it again please or guide me to where I might find it.Thanks.

thats wasted a good half hour of my time and given me useful ammo again'st the bigger cc is better lot!
are you still having problems with your knees?
as i have a similar problem, so this site was useful to compare my current bike with the last 3 or 4 i've had. seems twinkle has a better riding postion than than the R1 and the Thunderace. for me anyway, not for any potential passenger.
That's a interesting and very useful site site, thank's.
That's the one...
thanks zanderh.Diablere,yes my knees still ache,getting better but it's been three and a bit days.Riding a bike is supposed to be fun not punishment.
interesting.Seems my legs would be less bent on a Street Triple than on a CB1300 or a Speed Triple.Wierd that,thought as they were bigger bikes would have more room.Seems not,how very strange.
at the risk of being shown something pink and smallwhat is twinkle?
i test rode a Street triple r when twinkle was being serviced. have to say had i rode it before i bought the Daytona, it would have been a very tough choice to make!
as for kind to the knees though, its only when you get to the adventure bikes that huge gains are going to be made i think. 68 -74 degrees isn't to my mind going to make a huge difference. consider the tiger 800. just a suggestion!
i've never fallen off a bike i've named. superstition i agree, but still a fact.
and i really can't give anything a sensible name.
Twinkle is my bike's name
my german shephard is called "parsnip"
and one of my daughters middle names is "sparticus"
what can i say?
Have you ever fallen off your dog then?
And don't take the website's viewings as 'fact'! Just a guide, based on manufacturer's specs. Best way to tell accuracy (related to your own experience) is to go sit on the bikes you're interested in!
all the time
never pick a fight with a German Shepherd
wider bikes need higher pegs for ground clearance.I think.Is that right?
Sooo Twinkle is a Daytona...
had a dog called Broccoli and a Harley called Gloria.Nothing wrong with superstition,won't have the volume at 13 in the car,always spray a cross on my chest with body spray before getting dressed to go out on the bike and always put my left glove on first.I think I may be strange.
Tiger 800!!!NO NO NO NO NO.Thanks for suggestion but I really,really,really don't like them.
Think I might
need to adjust me rearsets a bit.
Hot-Linking images again tut tut
Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit
Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad
Ive done that
but why does it happen ??
and you have to take your foot off the peg to change gear,but they have a fair bit of variable settings for not a lot of money (less than 100 quid) mine are 50 mm ones(2 inch)they fit into your original foot peg brackets.
