    Hi everyone, another forum newbie here.

    At the very begining of the game it asks you your height. Me been me rushed through this to play the game and set it at 175cm. Is there any way of changing this as im a fair bit taller than that. I race Honda RS125s in real life and am quite lanky so when I get ingame the rider looks too small for me lol. And more importantly does changing this figure actually make any difference to your appearence in game??

    Well being shorter seems to reduce the likelyhood of clipping the riders head on barriers and walls.

    If they let you use Pedrosa's size how would you even see the rider? :sly:

    ha ha thats more like it. Although out of the 1000's of Arai helmets in game they dont have mine, or at least I haven't found it yet. :grumpy: . I like the Roberts Jnr. one though.

    He still looks small on the bike, but we did have a 1994 Tz125 and they are a slightly larger bike than the Honda RS, it does feel more like a modern SS600 than a GP125 bike lol, still damn small though!

    What is D.Pedrosa's height anyway? A couple of GP riders to be the same height with D.Pedrosa are M.Melandri and L.Capirossi. Who's the smallest of them? ..and these trio ride really good, amazing riders.

    For me You should modify a little bit your "TT" Style, when you ride IRL you are "lower" on bike.. Perhaps the difference is on this detail ? isn't it?

    Just had a thought, i know that weight isnt an option, but do you reckon that changing the height wolud change the weight of your rider?

    Is the riders weight factored in to this game and if so is it just a coinstant that doesnt change with height?

    I think i'm right in saying that...

    Dani Pedrosa is the lightest rider in MotoGP, at 51kg

    The heaviest rider in MotoGP is Jose Cardoso at 73kg.

    Last seasons heaviest rider was Alex Hoffman at 74kg.

    Rossi is the tallest rider in MotoGP, while Dani Pedrosa is the shortest.

    This proves size is not an issue, as Rossi is in a class of his own.
