You need to put a little heat into the motor before you romp on it.

I was at a race near Richmond VA, and they had top fuel Harleys. These things are insane! Anyway one guy was about mid track and he all of a sudden he flies off like he had a rope tied to his butt and had reached the end of it. He had to be taken away on a stretcher. I started asking questions and I was told that the head blew off the motor and hit the guy in the chest and knocked him off the bike. I was like... holy sh1t. Then my buddy tells me not to worry, it happens all the time. They are required to wear a bullet proof like vest to ride these things. So i'm like...let me get this straight.....You have to wear a vest not IF, but for WHEN the head blows off? He said yes, it happens all the time. I started respecting the size of fuel harley racers balls that day.
