That's the piston in the cylinder/crankcase. Peeking in through the
intake where the reeds live (it's a 2-stroke engine).

The brown thing is the connecting rod ("con-rod"), piston attaches to
the con rod with a wrist pin, then the other end is attached to the
crank.
The little circle thing right below the crack is one of the injectors.

Pistons shouldn't have cracks in them.

Pull the cylinder off, this is the piston:

connecting rod/wrist pin visible through the hole in the piston for the
injector.

Looking through the cylinder:

Fortunately I was able to hone most of that out.
The hole in the transfer port in the back is the other upper injector.
Black part on the bottom is the steel "base gasket".
The holes/ports in the cylinder wall are the transfer ports, fuel is
injected into the
crankcase by the injectors, as the piston cycles it
pulls in the air/fuel mix from teh crankcase into the cylinder where
it's then compressed and ignited with a spark plug in the head.
( http://wildcat.homeunix.net/sled/2011_Rebuild/DSC08414.jpg :
red part on top is the head, spark plugs stick out the top of that...
from top to bottom, the blue masked off ports are the exhaust valves,
exhaust, and air intake. Oil injector pump is that thing with all the
tubes off it at the bottom. Black hose between the cylinders is the
crankcase bearing oil line. Coolant line/thermostat is the big port on
the middle of the head.)

...like smashing through a stack of snow at that speed and continuing his way down...

or... darting into an ice skate tunnel and popping out again at the end continuing his flight...

37degF out on the ride home today.
Lady next to me was looking at me... then she does this
bundle-up-shiveriing motion. LOL.
No, it's above freezing, not cold at all. What are you talking about?
See the jacket and helmet? The red indicator for my heated grips? I'm
probably warmer right now than you are in your cage.

You have a helmet cam running on every ride?

And Bart, yup, that too!  :-)

If I knew when some douchenozzle in a cage was going to "not see me" and
do something dumb, i'd just avoid the incident altogether.

So yes... same reason I wear a helmet every time I ride... I don't plan
on using it every time I ride.

Most of the files end up in the trash. But every now and then there's
something good like that.

Ok, well in that case you need cameras pointing in all directions. Or perhaps a follow-cam on a hovercraft in the vicinity. Or something.

I've considered the hovercraft follow-cam before. It'd make wrecks like
this one a lot more fun to watch:
