Have tried motogp3 and the latest 07??
Not my cup of tea......

leaves me with a wonder of what i just did.

MXvsATV is better though, but nobody makes a game of that sort good enough. seems more for kiddikids.

Love EAs Superbike series, helped ya with the leaning, MototGPs are beautiful but not the easiest to drive fast, then there was this game Moto Racer, now wasnt the "Best" but has a little of everything, MotoX , SuperMotard, F1 250 an 500, Trials, and these bad ass street bike bullets that u race mono e mono thru traffic, THAT s**t was a RIOT !! If anyone has it i'll gladly re-instal for some 1V1 traffic mayhem !!

I'm a big motorcycle fan.  I have one of my own (87 Yamaha Radian 600), and love watching MotoGP 250 (favourite rider Mika Kallio), and World Superbikes (favourite rider Nori Haga).  I used to watch MotoGP, but I lost interest when Sete Gibernau retired.  Now I just basically watch whichever category Kallio is in.  I prefer WSBK by far though.

MotoGP

but what is that Rossi all about, Ducati a very very small company take on the massive Jap companies (Honda is well out of control with the number of people working on their MotoGP stuff) and WIN MotoGP on Bridgestones !!   :hats off:  :hats off:  :hats off:  :hats off:

So now Mr/Sir God on a bike Rossi switches to Bridgestone (fact or fiction), i think he is clutching at straws and should look a bit closer at the way the Yamaha didn't finished a few races and not try and make MotoGp a control tyre event !.



WSB

also can't wait to hear and see that 1098 1198cc WSB on the track

I'm getting MotoGP and Superbike on Speed channel here in the US.  I really like watching the MotoGP.  I think Nicky got screwed by Honda in '07.  I can't fathom how they built the bike for someone other than the champion.  I think he still did O.K., but I hope he comes back and wins again.

/so far as motorcycle racing games, I've tried some but you just don't get the feel of leaning in and stuff.   I don't think there will ever be a big seller in the simulation community.  (I know, a lot of them sold with the PS2/xBox crowd, but do they really play them every day like wee doo?)

Just put a DP ECU, open airbox and high flow airfilter in meh Monster.

Definitely enjoyed watching Stoner wave bye bye at the competition on the GP07 last year.  This year will probably be tougher, but should be more exciting racing.  Think I'm looking forward to WSBK a little more though to see what the 1198 in full race trim will do in Bayliss' hands.

I want a DC EPU too!
Don't know what it means but it's just cool, or hot.

Isn't that Monster a great design? I sure think so.  thumbs up
Looks like a very comfortable riding position to me.
