Super Burnout
-------------

Get your motor runnin' - you're in for the most challenging motorcycle racing 
experience ever.

Whether you're racing in the championship, competing against a friend or just
trying to beat the records, this race is so real you'll feel the g-force, hear
bugs crash against your helmet and smell the burning octane.

Feel the adrenaline pumping through your blood as the announcer signals the 
start of the race. As you zoom away from the start, the engine's roar will be 
echoed by your pounding heart. Hit the first curve at break-neck speed and 
launch into the straights as you push your bike to the limit.

As you finish each lap, your ears will ring with the crowd's thunderous cheers. 
Pushing your bike to the edge, scream past the competition and pound home to 
the finish.

While paused, you can adjust the music volume, FX volume or voice volume by 
pressing the A, B or C buttons respectively.

HINTS AND TIPS
--------------
* The dark marks on the track shows a perfect trajectory at 100 MPH. Always be 
  on the inside when entering a turn - you'll be able to slide without leaving 
  the track and you won't lose crucial speed.
 
* Never hesitate to reduce the turn's radius by going on the grass or the sand 
  just before the turn. If you don't stay there too long, your speed will be 
  reduced just enough so that you can turn without causing an accident. This 
  technique works best on hairpin curves with a minimal loss of speed.

* When you hit or bump a challenger, you will only fall down if the speed 
  difference between your bike and his bike is very high.

* Some oils stay on the track after a crash. Avoid the oil or your bike will 
  lose grip for the first five seconds back in the saddle.
