I blew my engine today :-/

Well from bad to worse, I"m having trouble with my truck and know this.
The Hov lane became empty at 1960 so I stopped and launched my bike.Right when I hit the rev limiter in 6th gear something let go. It stayed running but was on like 2 cylinders and smoking bad. I hurt it good I'm sure.I'm still impressed tho, I have ran the out of this motor for a couple years know.

What kind of bike?

I know the feeling of running WOT on the North I45 HOV. You can carry serious speed down that HOV at certain times of the day.
