Why when I see motorcycles racing they cover the headlights? Is it because the dont need them? I know its a stupid question but I was wondering

Depending on the bike, they're either covering or taping the headlights in the event of a crash, the glass doesn't get all over the track. Or on racebikes, there are no headlights, don't need them and it's weight you don't want.

There are exceptions to the "track bikes dont have headlights" rule, but thats usually way high up in the ranks, i.e. Endurance raing that goes into nighttime like the 24h ones.. they have headlamps..

Just thought id pipe in with another useless tidbit.. :)
