What is the sound of one piston slapping?

It's a pretty awesome event that goes on every year in my parents home state of Jalisco in Mexico and consists of large caravans of quads, motorbikes, ATVs and buggies covering some very rough terrain over the sierra mountains to reach the awesome beach resort town of Puerto Vallarta. I found out about this event a couple years back when I visited Mexico and stayed with an uncle who owned a store in a small town where the riders would stop to purchase fuel and supplies and ever since then I've been dreaming of participating in this. It looks like it would be an epic adventure to go on. Here's a map of the route.
