What's going on inside your motorcycle engine?

This video was shared with me via one of the many motorcycle e-mail lists I monitor. Fascinating to see just what's going on inside our engines, how hard they work.

If you're anything like me, you'll watch the video at the beginning and impatiently skip ahead to the part where they start increasing the rpms. But then when you get there you'll realize that it's going so fast you can't see a damn thing! You lose perspective as to what is going on because it's happening too fast. So you'll rewind back to the beginning and watch what is going on at a speed where you can follow it. And then be amazed that all that can happen so fast at higher rpms!
