Well, I did hear they got rid of inward drifting with bikes, as well as maybe a few other things. So the speed differences shouldn't be so ridiculously high this time around.

Really? Where did you hear that? Inward drifting was the best reason for me to use bikes.

Is there to was though when even at like of than with it?

64 courses that I think we need!
#1 Banshee boardwalk
#2 Royal Raceway
#3 DK Jungle
#4 (Mario raceway, Moo Moo Farm, Yoshi Valley) any of these would be good.
Battle:
Block fort and/or Double deck

Don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out alive.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

They didn't have any for the Mario Kart 8 demo, but I'm not sure if we can say that it's 100% true yet. However, I noticed that the bikes handle just like the cars, and you can't wheelie. I think the bikes will behave almost exactly like the karts this time around to keep things balanced (because Mario Kart Wii turned into Mario Bike Wii). Also, the vehicles drive almost exactly like they do in Mario Kart 7, so it won't take long to adjust.

I know switching from Mario Kart 64 to Double Dash, or from Mario Kart Wii to Mario Kart DS can be a pain, because the karts handle differently in all of those games, but the transition from Mario Kart 7 to Mario Kart 8 did not feel weird to me at all.

I really hope the bikes will be better balanced. While it's awesome to ride Wario on his motorcycle from WarioWare, the bikes really are superior to the karts in Mario Kart Wii, so they tarnished the game somewhat. That's why I was very pleased when they were taken out of Mario Kart 7 and was cautiously optimistic when they were put back in 8. We'll see, but I'm also curious how the customization from Mario Kart 7 will affect the bikes.

I'm pretty sure that inward drifting was taken out as well as wheelies. Hopefully that makes bikes a bit more balanced. That and please no Funky Kong :P

For some reason, I feel like 3DS will get an F-Zero. Mario Kart 7 will look like nothing in comparison to Mario Kart 8, IMO, that's why I think an F-Zero will happen.
They only do one Mario Kart game per console. F-Zero would be improving Nintendo's race entity while not entirely knocking out Mario Kart 7.

Kind of off topic, but I think Wii U AND 3DS will get a Metroid game. As for Starfox, I think Wii U will get that in a similar way they did Starfox: Assault. All those games were great back during the GCN, that's why I opted Nintendo only at the time.

Yeah I miss that bike too. I actually miss inward drifting in general. I wish that there was an option to choose between inward/outward drift. They both have advantages but some people just prefer one over the other
