    @~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~@
    
    After buying Mario Party 7 (and was extremely disappointed in doing so), I 
    completely forgot that Sonic Riders was coming out.  In fact, I did not 
    remember that was was coming out until one day before the shipping date. 
    I was skeptical of this game's awesomeness when I bought it for $39.99, but I
    didn't "give up hope" that quickly, and I am glad that I didn't.  I do not 
    have the time to make a full-blown FAQ of Sonic Riders, but I felt that I 
    needed to contribute something to help the GameFAQs community.  I received
    many good comments about my Sonic Advance 3 Special Stage FAQ, so now I am
    presenting this guide.  I am hoping that this guide will give you a better 
    idea on what obtainable items (called "extreme gear") are in this game.
