Cooking on the engine

The topic of cooking was mentioned .
Having cooked meat pies and soup on the engine of my tractor for years , I imagine the same could be done on a motorbike .
Some information :

A book - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/037...lance&n=283155

A video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0ba964yjMg

I think an airhead BMW would be perfect ,just tuck your meal wrapped in aluminium foil behind the cylinder and then ride at a moderate speed until cooked !

Oatmeal might be a bit messy though .

Bon appetit

I remember a guy telling me that he used to stop about an hour before his final destination and prop a couple of potatoes wrapped in tin foil next to the cylinders of his engine. He'd then ride the final hour. By the time he found his campsite and setup his tent, the cooked potatoes would have cooled enough to eat.

I've never tried it, but it sounds like a pretty good idea!

Well, what about cooking bannock stuck on the outside of the exhasut pipes.
(just joking) Up in northern Canada, the guys with pickups made coffee and cooked their food on the engines when it was tooooo cold. cheers all, rio_perros <*)*)*)*)*)>{

Used to cook various thing on the main exhaust from a large marine deisel.

I've only ever kept things warm on the bike exhaust.
