Hog heaven! Bacon-powered motorcycle headed for California

This is the coolest thing I've ever seen.  I would have never thought of a diesel powered motorcycle.  I've got to have one!!
This hog runs on bacon.

A pig-fueled motorcycle is cruising across the country to promote the most delicious of breakfast meats.

“The journey is sort of the destination,” Scott Schraufnagel of advertising agency BBDO told the Austin Daily Herald.

The stunt is a guerilla marketing campaign funded by Hormel Foods to ham hawk their pork strips to the masses.

BBDO had the rare T800CDI diesel motorcycle retrofitted to run on a custom biofuel converted from pure bacon grease.

The result is a two-wheeler that gets 75 to 100 miles per gallon and smells like a diner griddle at breakfast time.
Looking online, I see the concept is not new and others have done it.
