Took you long enough. You completely missed all the news that came before that though. BSE has a few new gameplay videos too, including mini-moto action. Sim-racing is not only about cars....
Be realistic. Sim racing is SIM racing because of the closeness you can seemingly get with a wheel and pedals. Can't really do as much with a bike. I like Ride, and it IS part of sim racing, but this niche is mostly cars.

Still such a long time to wait! This could very well be my favourite game.
I really enjoyed Ride 3, I put 670 hours in to it.

Buy a gamepad Then
Got one, lol.
Anyway, I'm yet to see a video where someone, using either a gamepad or a keyboard, runs flawlessly hitting all the curves at the right angle. EVERYONE goes wide in almost every corner. It's like the game somehow forces everyone to turn in the middle of the road.
I suppose a flying stick should be the best possible solution to archive the precision required.

The bikes still feel quite heavy to turn for some reason but hey, at least they have god damn tire wear and pits.

You make absolutely no sense AT ALL. Unless of course you're one of those who think racing simulation games simulate reality 100%. YOU should be a bit more realistic....

How do you know this? It's not even out yet. And why bikes wouldn't feel heavy? They ARE heavy. In Ride 3 they felt like they weight as much as a moped and leaned way too fast.

I played Moto GP and it felt heavier and more difficult to turn while isle of man felt more agile. They did say Ride 4 will use the similar physics engine from MotoGP. MotoGP20 feel like I am constantly fighting to control the bike. Somehow it felt like Criterion NFS games that I am constantly fighting to turn the car which I hated it.

I know bikes are different from cars, Milestone motorcycle games feel like there is a lag or some sort of weird damping in turning the bike.

Motorbikes don't handle like that. People don't ride motorbikes with throttle control like that. If went out on my KTM and turned in and was repeatedly chopping the throttle on and off I'd be down the road. Watch an actual motorbike race the cornering looks nothing like what Milestone keep coming up with year on year.

These games are fun but they aren't realistic. I just take them for what they are.
