Free "Davis" update arriving Thursday also adds dynamic weather and time of day

We've been looking forward to the addition of motorcycles to Burnout Paradise from the moment we first heard the idea. Criterion kept us waiting a little bit past the originally intended August timeframe for the release, but today they've announced that it's ready, and coming next week! The free update -- codenamed "Davis" -- will be available Thursday, September 18. Once you've grabbed the update, just head to the nearest Junkyard and the two bikes will be there waiting for you to chose from.
Along with the two new motorcycles this new update brings a whole new look to Paradise City with the addition of both a day-night cycle and dynamic weather. To get you into the swing of things with the bikes they've also cooked up 38 race-against-the-clock events like Burning Ride and Midnight Ride, and 70 more Freeburn Challenges. Of course, we won't blame you if you spend your first night just pulling wheelies and tearing through the streets in the middle of the night. The team also spills some more details on the bikes in the latest episode of their video podcast Crash TV which you can check out on iTunes.

Oh, and they wrap up this latest post with one more tease: info on Trophies for the PS3 version coming next week.
Cool, bikes.

I want to, but I told myself I wouldn't play online until I got my elite license (goddamn stunt runs).  But I probably will anyways.  My psn is ShortRnd.

Yeah, Criterion and Evolution Studios should be rewarded by us, the consumers, at the time of choosing a game.  They both supported their respectives games, Burnout and Motorstorm with great updates, and you don't see that very often.

Count me in that bike racing...this update looks ...I hope you can fling the rider over the handlebars, or do something of the sort.  I want an update that puts people in the cars.

Burnout was awesome when I played it at a friend's place (long time ago though).

Will get when it comes out on PC later (which it is)

I do.

I'm glad you get them right away.

Holy shit, that second one is FAST. I love it.

Only thing I don't like is you don't see the rider flying off when you crash.

I wasn't really that impressed with them to be honest.  I didn't play it very long, but the only thing I figured out how to do was a wheelie.  Is that all the "tricks" you can do on them?  And the three bike races I played were really easy.  Does anyone know if the night races are more challenging (haven't tried those yet) or if they get harder as you play?

I'll give it another try tomorrow, but my first impression wasn't really that great.
