Question Vertical scrolling motorcycle game.. Anyone?

I once had a motorcycle game. Don't remember a whole lot about it, except it was fun for me. The screen was scrolling up, as you drove downwards. The motorcycle was not very big. You were driving in some grass and on some hills. I can imagine it was not a game that would go down in history, as it was not a top quality game. But does anyone have some names, that I can check out? I have failed to find this game..

Heh.. Thank you very much for your suggestions. Sadly, none of them checked out. However I finally managed to track it down myself (yay!). It was Motorbike Madness from 1988. Older than I thought.. Here:

Of course, there are many games that i was playing those days that today they will be the ugliest on all platforms. For example do you remember Boulder Dash? I was a maniac. Those were the games. The games of today? Most of them are PC (Pure Crap).

Does anyone remember yet another one of those motorcycle games called "RoadRash".
I used to play that one for hours, although it had kind of a brutal flavour since you could kick your competitors out or even beat them.

They even did a pc remake with, a whopping FIVE tracks! (if I remember correctly). But you could still beat or kick apponents from their bikes, so it was great The Amiga version had a very funny kick animation. Looked more like he had some "business" to do.
