I am glad I spent the money on this game. I bought it after coming home from a canyon ride on my ZX-14 this past Sunday. I had held off because the reviews were crap mostly, but I am glad I finally picked this game up. I like it better than the Moto GP series. Why? BEcause these are race prepped factory bikes. Yes, they are tweaked a bit, but I like racing them knowing you could go buy the bike, and basically be riding the same bike you watched on the weekend. This game is much better than the reviews are letting on. Pick it up if you are a motorcycle enthusiast. It is the closest you will get to actual riding on a screen. My new fave motorcycle game.
