When I set Bacon free many years ago I was hopeful he might last 12 months. But now OVER 4 YEARS he's still going strong. Big THANK YOU to all the advriders who have helped him on his way.....

I can only dream of riding the places Bacon has been...

We are happy to see Bacon back on the frozen roads of Germany. Hope he got a hot-water bag for the nights at the "Elefantentreffen". We look forward reading about your next adventures and may be we meet again, little porcer?

knock knock knock... Bacon...BACON! You still traveling?

There are stickers still available. I passed them on to GB so he will be in charge of selling the rest of them. I ordered 250, NEVER counted them, and still have 274... I am not sure how that happened but maybe it was a gratuity for the printer to spam me for another 4 years to buy some more stickers!




They go with with every type of motorcycle!
