Sure, big crashes are good for a laugh or two here and there, but it halrey long before the fickle nature of the game's slapdash physics becomes merely laughable. Game Info Harley-Davidson Motorcycles: A deep mix of turn-based combat and card game mechanics.
Why one would ride from Big Sur to Sturgis through Florida is anyone's guess, but this is gaming as opposed to the real world, so we don't need no damn logic.
Race to the Motogcycles takes gamers from coast to coast across America exploring classic rides centric to Harley-Davidson and the biker lifestyle such as Big Sur, historic Route 66, and the Badlands. And to do that, you must stay ahead of the pack, avoid all the traffic developer Magic Wand Productions has placed in your way, and drive just about as dangerously as you can.
Conclusion Bikers must have never felt as wronged as they do now, with Activion's failure, called Harley-Davidson Rally. Racing through the various tracks that include the game's tour mode--your ultimate goal is to end up in Sturgis, South Dakota for the annual motorcycle rally--you'll tackle a variety of point-to-point and circuit races strewn across the US. You're Good to Go! To unlock the next segment, you must first finish in the top three riders of the segment that precedes it.

After you finish the tour mode, you can race all the tracks again in reverse. Don't expect the cool fights you've seen in Road Rash, as it's all a matter of milliseconds here between your contact with the opponent and your deadly fall. The actual act of riding the bike is an exercise in tedium, as boring, repetitive textures pass you by at a lazy clip, punctuated by a constantly skipping frame rate that looks more like stop-motion video than a game.
But as is typical with licensed tie-in games, it falls short of what the publisher expected. Upgrades are available if you were not satisfied with the original setup of your bike and you'll can now toy with the wheels, the exhaust, the seat, the camshaft, the carburetor, basically all the stuff we've seen on Orange County Choppers.
The mystique around the Harley Davidson brand of motorcycles seems to revolve more around enjoying the journey, rather than getting to your destination as quickly as possible.

About the only things that looks right in the game are the Harley Davidson models themselves, all of which are customizable with items, such as new tires, camshafts, or suspensions though the upgrades don't really seem to improve anything. From top to bottom, this game features ugly, harey, and bland textures, many of which repeat over and over again.
You'll race on famous garley like Big Sur, the arch-famous Route 66 or the Badlands and I must say that I don't quite remember another racing game with such long tracks. An insult to Harley fans and racing-game aficionados, this game should be avoided at all costs.
In fact, the game's soundtrack features a lot more tunes than those on display, but it's very rare that you hear Rushmanor's "Rock Exodus Fever" or Skinny Ron's "Showdown in the Furnace. Fast and dumb and not worthy of your time.
Harley-Davidson Motorcycles: Race to the Rally for PC Reviews - Metacritic
Indeed, the sidecar-equipped beast you'll unveil for the final run at Sturgis is the most awkward of the bunch. Sometimes you'll go flying into the air off the lip of a jump only to land by instantly crashing. You're either a biker lover or a biker hater. If Harley-Davidson was looking to release a game as a marketing tool, they need to realize that other companies are doing it better and cheaper.

The sense of speed is nonexistent, even if your virtual odometer reads in excess of mph. None of this is helped by the game's absolutely atrocious graphics.
And when you come across a fellow racer, hit the "kick" button to unceremoniously boot him from his motor steed and hopefully send him rade across the pavement, arms and legs hideously akimbo.
