  • Patent number: 5547382
    Abstract: A motorcycle riding simulation system including a model motorcycle operated and ridden upon by a person. Responsive to operation by the person riding, the model motorcycle is moved by a driven mount to pitch, yaw and roll to simulate riding conditions. A moving image such as scenery which would be seen from a running motorcycle is displayed in front of the person riding. The moving image is varied in response to driving conditions of the model motorcycle and is provided by a display with a curved screen. An image projector projects images on the curved screen from behind. The system is provided with an image recorder for recording both images displayed by the display and driving operation data. An output provides access to recorded information in the image recorder. A background image is reflected in the rear view mirrors of a two-wheeled simulation vehicle. The image is formed by a background image generator.
