It seems like Harald had some bad luck. Well I believe blown engine is not nearly the worst thing that can happen at 190kph.
Ok, so I was having fun, too. Few years ago, I was riding a young stallion, near the top speed at about 25kph (:-). We just went past small path to the right. At that point the horse decided that we should have turned to the right... and did the sharp turn, still near top speed, missing the path and running straight into the fallen tree. He attempted to jump over the tree at the last moment, but did not make it.
The tree was damaged a bit, but fortunately the horse was not, so I did not have to carry him home :-).
