Thrustmaster Freestyler Bike Handlebar Controller

This thing is incredible! Ordered it from Amazon. Just arrived in the mail today and I fiddled around with it playing Harley-Davidson & L.A. Riders. Handled so well to where I can't tell apart from the arcade unit. I'm gonna test it out later with Wave Runner and Motor Raid on the Model 2 Emulator, and possibly a few bike games on MAME.

It's so plug and play and handles so good. I got bored playing with the control pad and using a steering wheel doesn't feel quite as accurate (I love it for Daytona 2, Jambo Safari and other racers) but is the next best thing. Definitely recommend if you like motorcycle games. I just hope it doesn't break on me later, hehe.

Here's my analog control settings for LA Riders if you plan on playing it with that:
; Pedals
InputAccelerator = "JOY1_YAXIS_NEG"
InputBrake = "KEY_DOWN,JOY1_YAXIS_POS"
InputJoy1ZSaturation = 175

Thanks, man! Not a lot of people play bike games and they've made very few 'bike' controllers over the years, but I'm loving this Thrustmaster one. Got it working with Motor Raid on the M2 Emulator pretty solidly today.

It's also got an adjustable platform that you can clamp in your desktop, and surprisingly it sticks under my desktop tighter than my Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel.

There was someone else here who had it and posted a thread about it, but back when he posted that, Harley on Supermodel wasn't fully playable. Now it's almost a breeze.
