Sure as hell do!! Played that a bunch as a kid! Lots of blown up motors too! Recently bought a mint copy of it off eBay and have been meaning to find a way to use an auxiliary disc drive with a USB port to see if I can get it to play on a newer laptop? Anyone have any luck with that?

I remember this, my buddy had it for his PC.

We used to put lots of air pressure in our tires, stiffen the suspension and end up with a broken wheel, snapped front forks or in the hospital with our let up and casted haha....

Some AI guy named Broc Yates kept beating us.

My buddy had one in 85 or 86 on his computer that I have thought about many times over the years but forgot the name of it. You could set the gravity level, even up to moon gravity. It was ahead of it's time and even had an amazing track builder that was awesome. Years later Motocross Madness was great how you had to hit the corners just right to clear the jumps and the hay bails were not forgiving. Good times

I don't have to be as smart as you hope to be some day anymore.

I still want this one for the game room...!

Cool thread! I had a really early one- on ZX Spectrum 48K- loved that little machine!
Thought all my Christmas's had come at once after upgrading to Spectrum 48k from Commodore Vic 20 which had 3.5k of memory if I remember correctly. Played the thing for months on end with all my buddies popping round to play also! Happy days.

Remember playing 'Jet Set Willy' amongst others and this little gem 'Ghost Rider' which I guess was kind of moto.

In college I had a kickass job where my time was split 50/50 between writing code and reviewing racing video games, so I got early copies of a lot of stuff. MCM2 was one of the games I got a beta copy of months before it hit the shelves, and you could race multiplayer during the beta period. My roommate and childhood moto friend lost his mind when it showed up in the mail. I worked my way up to the #9 plate in that game at one point!
