On a flat surface, almost any motorcycle can beat a horse. A specially bred quarter horse can run up to 55 miles an hour, but this is only true of rare individuals - even thoroughbred racers seldom clock anything over thirty-five miles. It don't take a Kawasaki to best this performance;
Now, with a couple of logs and ravines in the way, the situation changes drastically. The ability to jump and sidestep is a pretty sweet bonus on cross terrain; while dirt bikes can overcome some pretty daunting obstacles, trying to work up decent speed on rough terrain is a constant struggle to avoid becoming buried in the ground helmet-first.
On endurance, wheeled transport probably has the edge, especially if there's a bit of speed in the race. Over long distances, a motorcycle won't insist on being fed as forcefully as a horse would. However, due to various geological circumstances, when a bike runs out of fuel, it's dead on the mountain, whereas a horse could find a way to replenish its strength, as long as there are green plants around.
