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.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
