In Case You Can't Get Enough Bacon

I gather that Hormel built a bacon-powered* motorcycle.  And they promptly found some guy to set out on a ride from Austin, Minnesota to  San Diego, California on it.

I have to admire that.





They have a website about the trip here.  It's not particularly informative, but it does have a few more photos of the bike.


*They used bacon grease to have bio-diesel made.

I'm wondering who makes the diesel powered motorcycle...

Chris Cope said...

Richard -- It's a seriously customised Track T800-CDi.

Charlie6 - Finally, two great things that go great together - motorycles and bacon.

mq01 - It is a sharp looking bike! And I want bacon too. It was a brilliant marketing move by Hormel, reminding bikers that they make bacon...

Richard M & Chris Cope - I guess Chris answered the question. I'd been wondering the same thing, but hadn't looked that deeply into it. Probably because I was distracted by the novelty of a bacon-powered motorcycle.
