Drive south down the road for half a mile, and on the right side of the road the cliffs will end and you can drive onto the grass. Drive up the hill onto the top of the ridge. Follow the ridgeline for a half mile and you will see a glowing symbol next to a bush. Drive into the symbol faster than 30 mph and you will teleport to the small island.

To unlock motorcycles, aka "bikes", you have to find and enter every single car show/dealership (NOT the Car rental places though). Once you have done this, all bike dealerships will be open. Alternativly, to get a bike without unlocking the dealerships, just simply go to your house, and buy one over Xbox Live form another player.

Test Drive Unlimited Hints
PS2 | Submitted by Flip DDistance shortened
in a race
If you are in a race with someone in a club, but you think the track is too long, just exit until you get to the menu which shows your rank in the club and challenge over again. This may make your track longer but can also make it shorter. You can do this all the time, there will always be a new track.

In the extra challenges (Top Models, Hitchickers, Transporter and Convoy),
and in free-ride as well, your GPS doesn't show you the quickest path to your
destination. It shows you the "legal" path according to the Highway Code. You
can forget the law and find a shorter path yourself ...
