Ooops, the Franken-Bike popped another motor!

Lucky for Franken-Bunny, he managed to get his family jewels out of the way before that rear cylinder came shooting up through the seat. That coulda been quite an expensive crash indeed.

As you can see, running a highly modified bike can not only make for a potentially dangerous situation but also can draw a lot of your attention away from the primary purpose for showing up at the track: racing!

Reliability is one of the things that a new racer should look for in a bike so that getting it running isn't such a chore.
