Borrowed this from Tiger1050's TiggernHobbes:

http://cycle-ergo.com/

Of course, the Tiger 800 isn't in the database yet, but since the BMW 800GS is so similar, you can at least get some idea of how you'll fit.

Thanks Jenni (if you're on here)

Just tried the 800gs.... I'm too short to reach the handlebars....in Metric form......My feet were flat to the floor in trainers too when I sat on a real one.

Maybe I've lost weight!

How short must you really be to not reach the handlebars I wonder.....2' 6"?

Must be a software prob umm - feature - when I select metric the same thing happens.  Seems to work fine otherwise.

Nice!  The emulation of 800gs (touching on tippy toes) pretty much fit me like the ones in dealers showroom.  the tiger XC had even higher!  Ouch!

Which is why I question it... the T8XC should be same if not slightly lower unless the seat is barge wide. It also shows me quite a bit higher on the Sprint GT than on the Sprint ST which I know is incorrect.

This tool is interesting but it doesn't take seat width into account which is very important on how your feet touch the ground....
