How to play Mikes Bikes?

Has anyone every tried to worked out how to get the best results possible from Mikes Bikes Advanced Simulation Game. I would really love to hear from anyone who has performed extremely well and to give tips on how to improve this game.

What I have found so far:

Despite what the instructions say; if you want to dominate distribution you do need to give more than 50-55% of profits to them. In my experience if you are entering into the Leisure Market and keeping the Adventurer Bike (Rockhopper) then you need to offer around 65-70% in the first 3-5 years.

It may look as though entering into another market is a good idea but after attempting this twice I feel that profit share did not gain as much as I had anticipated.

I am continuing to play and as I develop my experience I am going to share this with you as this is not an easy game to master when you have limited experience.

Look forward to hearing from you
