RIDE 2 is the latest motorcycle racer from Milestone who also produce the MotoGP racing titles. Unlike the MotoGP series, RIDE incorporates tracks with street circuits across the globe with a myriad of bikes from different classes such as supermoto, racing bikes, sport bikes and naked bikes to choose from. RIDE 2 also encompasses the largest number of manufacturers out of any motorcycle racer from all the popular names such as Honda, Yamaha, Ducati to BMW, KTM and Triumph. Similarly, to its predecessor, RIDE 2 has standard races but also time trial challenges, overtaking challenges and even head-to-head drag race tournaments. If you are a fan of bikes or racing, you will definitely get enjoyment from this game.
The platinum is very easy but very, very time consuming. There are a few online trophies which are somewhat of a grind as a boosting partner will be needed for completing 25 races online and an online championship but overall the offline trophies are a cakewalk. What makes this game so lengthy is having to acquire over 340 tokens to unlock all the ride bonuses, which are basically advantages or cheats that you can apply while racing. You can only acquire 6 tokens per day through the 3 daily challenge races. There is also a weekly challenge that can help you acquire 6 tokens (if you manage to beat the gold time). At most you can receive 48 tokens per week, therefore it will take you at least 7 weeks to get the Platinum. In addition, you can unlock a bonus to convert 20,000 racing credits to 1 token but this should be left towards the end of the game when you’re very close to the Platinum.
There is no right or wrong way to tackle this game but I would recommend completing the offline career mode first. By completing the career and winning as many races as you can, you will unlock and win more bikes which will help you later in online and the daily challenges. Start off in the beginner championships and work your way through to the more advanced classes. While working through the career mode, you will unlock the other events and have the opportunity to earn more trophies. You do not have to complete every race in career, just as many as needed to earn all the offline trophies. Afterwards, head online and do the daily challenges simultaneously.
It will be a lengthy grind of up to 2 months but if you are persistent, the platinum is easily obtainable as you only need to complete 2-3 races per day for 2 months to unlock all the ride bonuses.
Step 1: Offline career
Here you will be focusing on the career trophies and trying to get some of the misc ones as well. Start off in the beginner tiers and try winning as many races as you can to acquire money and invitations to do special events. As you continue to win races and complete tiers, you will unlock more advanced competitions which can allow you to earn more money and unlock faster and better bikes. Don't be afraid to spend a little bit of money to upgrade bikes (cheap upgrades towards the engine in particular can go a long way). When doing drag race events, pick your fastest bike, set the gear ratios to fairly low and you should win these).

Step Two: Clean up the miscellaneous offline trophies
Here, you will be working on cleaning up the misc trophies and trying to improve your skills whilst you're at it. Most of these will only be possible when you have accumulated enough money to purchase more bikes and then, can buy cheap bikes to acquire a large garage.
At the end of this step, you will have unlocked the following trophies:

Step Three: Get the online trophies
Even while playing online, you should also be completing the daily challenges offline to acquire 6 tokens per day but up to 2 months of grinding will be needed before you have enough tokens to buy everything. See the online trophies for an individual guide and as always, refer to boosting thread if you need a buddy online.
