This morning I marvelled at the temperature gauge on the Triumph. Even in the cold this bike gets crazy hot. It gets up over 212 degrees Farenheit, which as we all know is the temperature water boils at (generally speaking).
I'm aware that there is a cookbook out there with tips on how to cook on a car's engine. For those who think playing tiddlywinks is excitement enough, that might be fine. But for those of us with serious thrill issues, a picnic is just another lukewarm sandwich if there isn't a trace of adrenaline still coursing through our veins.
On cold days, why not use the motor's heat to brew coffee on the ride to work?
I've noticed that Lady Luck's Vespa produces a lot of heat in the area under the seat. I wonder if it could be used as a crock pot. After all, after a three hour ramble, a pot roast would taste mighty fine.
These are the kinds of things I think about at stoplights.
