Summary: Agree with first poster about the learning curve. it helps to start with the smaller bikes and then move up. once you get the hang of this game, it is very addictive. very realistic and the graphics are pretty good also.

It certainly doesn't look like it had a big budget behind it. But the actual racing, is rather good. Like most motorbike simulators, you'll be all over the place at first - it takes time to get used to the handling.
