After getting my driving rig setup, and Dad having a go at it, he hasn't stopped talking about a similar setup but for motorcycles.
I know one would be way harder to setup and way more expensive, but does such a thing exist? What do people use for Motorcycling games?

Technically they do, I have seen a couple with G27 based steering (mounted in the forks) and of course the old Sega arcade games had something approaching a rideable bike sim rig.

This fella is getting close to an affordable home user set-up - this video may be 2 years old, but, check out his youtube channel - he is still producing them, now on Version 3.

Not enough good bike sim games to waste money on a motorcycle rig even if there where ones. Speaking of bikes I am going to get my riding licence soon. Can not wait!

I have been racing MX basically my entire life , and in our life time , I don't think we'll ever see a " real motorcycle sim ".

In our car sims.....we worry about the car behavior , and it doesn't matter what our body does in the car , except to just steer the car. On two wheels......98% of what you do on the track is controlled by your body. You don't just turn the bars and give it gas. I can say with 100% certainty , that MX is the most brutal sport I have ever been involved with.....and that's without going down and breaking something on your body. I've raced going on 35 years now , and have literally broken almost every bone in me , at least once , some more than twice. To actually " simulate " how to ride / race a bike properly? That's above my pay grade , but it would take something not yet invented for gaming yet , and that would be way for it to read what your body is doing , along with using bike controls.

It's one thing that I don't think will ever happen in our life time , because to achieve it....would cost a lot of money. It would be a lot cheaper to just buy a " real " bike and experience it yourself. It's the best feeling in the world , I can tell you that much.
