Honda wants to ramp up the buzz around its flingable new 2011 CBR250R, and rather than dumping a pile a of YouTube videos onto the web, the company has unleashed a side-scrolling Flash game, TouringGlobe. The rules are simple: Players pick a bike livery and avatar before heading out to "ride" around the world. Unlike other flash games, you don't actually control your bike, per se. You can speed up or slow down, but the motorcycle more or less continues on regardless of your interactions.

It's not thrilling by any means, especially considering that no matter how hard you try, you can't outrun the other riders playing the game at the same time. Maybe they weigh less than we do. If you've got a few seconds to kill and feel like seeing some bizarre backgrounds (as shown above) you can point your browser in this direction.
