You blew up the phone or the motor? At that speed, you must have been spinning over 9000 RPM or better, really straining the structural limits of the materials the rod, piston, wrist pin, crank & bearings. If your motor blew, it's probably because something came apart internally.
At 30 MPH, my motor vibrations are so bad it shakes like a titty dancer on meth, everything in my mirrors becomes a blur. (gotta stuff my handlebars with lead shot, I know) At those speeds I'm not so much afraid of wrecking or spilling at speed (although I'm sure it'll hurt if I do), so much as the motor grenading between my knees.
