Think of it this way: if the Plasma weapon blows up in the Biker's face, he's either dead from the overheat itself or, failing that, from the subsequent crash since he's just got a face full of plasma.
As for a Dread? There's 10 tons of armour plating between the plasma and anything else - kinda like a flea biting an elephant, eh?
Like Caluin said, it's all explained in the rules - only vehicles are immune, and Bikers are really just a modified form of infantry.
actually the fluff says that there are extra coolants available on vehicle mounted Plasma Weapons. So they don't overheat.Originally Posted by Wraith

Shut up and play.
