Bikin' on Bacon: Behold the Bacon-Powered Motorcycle

Picture it: you're sitting on the freeway in traffic with the windows open, and the deliciously unmistakeable scent of bacon comes wafting into your car. Traffic is bumper-to-bumper, so you can't even take the nearest exit and hunt for a 24-hour diner to satisfy your increasing desire for some crispy strips. How are you going to release your bacon frustration? Easy — call the 800 number of Hormel, because it's probably their fault.

Hormel has manufactured the bike pictured above, which runs on biodiesel fuel derived from bacon grease and emits bacon-scented exhaust fumes. The bike will be featured in an upcoming documentary, Driven by Bacon, about a bacon-lovin' man who travels from Austin, Texas to San Diego, California. The doc will be presented to what is certain to be an enthusiastic crowd at the San Diego International Bacon Film Festival on August 29th. 

It might not be a Harley, but it reserves the right to be called a hog. Via Lost at E Minor.
