Abstract

As there is little published data on motorcyclists, an anthropometric survey of 140 UK motorcyclists was undertaken, together with a brief questionnaire survey covering demographic details and motorcycling experience. Additionally an investigation of knee position on a static motorcycle test rig was undertaken. Six body dimensions relevant to the design of the riding package of a motorcycle were considered. It was found that the population of motorcyclists, both male and female, were taller than the general population with mean statures of 1774.0 and 1639.7 mm, respectively. The knee position study indicated that there was wide variation in the forward position of the knee (range 228 mm).
