Thanks to Ladybug0048 for providing the picture!
Thanks TimF650GS for letting the AMA know about our pig friend. It's interesting seeing how Bacon has effected people and the things that have taken place because of his travels.

Heck, I had a blast hanging out with Bacon and so did a few other dry siders while we were pretty much still snow bound in this area. After this article hit the AMA magazine a few people who knows me spotted it and got a kick out of the picture and wanted to know more. As a very high point a previous boyfriend spotted it and was able to find me through ADV and contacted me. We remained friends after we split but lost touch a few years back as things in life sometimes happens. It sure was good to hear from him.

Thanks Bacon!

Greetings from Colfax where we're at at the moment visiting relatives.

Glad to be able to help. Looking forward to meeting you at PacificNWet or the Dirty Face or Black Dog (I don't remember which rides you'll be at).

Personally I think it is compulsory for you yanks to take Bacon to Bonneville for a subsonic ride as it is every lads ambition to strangle the shit out of the throttle until the valves bounce through the tank on the salt flats. No helmet of course! See if you can straighten his hair (is that bristle?) out.

If that porker is coming up to Boise does that mean he'll be coming to Montana next? I'm ready for the handoff (as well as Sapper, Teamwrench and Putts). I want to take him on some off the Continental Divide Trail
Oh yeah, I got those gay pink stickers (Bacon's Relay) all ready to put on my bike.....

Bacon in the Paradise Valley?

When is the wee man coming to MT? His flights of fancy have taken him far and wide. Now its time to show him the park the pass and the crest. Desypher that and you are truly Montucky. Hope to see ya soon. Fire season is a long time off so lets make it happen. Any one in the area interested in a ride, soon. I've been gone a long time and figured I'd go fishing for a riding buddy. Peace.

Tell me gaz, is it mandatory Bacon return to Australia after 12 months? Does his/her visa expire? The reason I ask, Bacon's been on the road over 6 months and only really been eastern Australia and western USA (over 4 months there) . I'm aware the USA is center of the universe...( )... but shouldn't hammy start thinkin' bout blowin' this pop stand and headin down to South America or to the east coast - Europe - Asia?

But if dad (gazza) wants to extend little snort's curfew a year or 2 ...?

At this rate, he'll never leave the Bay area.

Somebody down there needs to get a hold of Jake the wonder pup and get Bacon back on the road. It's been over a month since I handed over to JTWP without a single update.

Not mandatory but it was just my way of keeping Bacon on the move. I dont really mind if his trip is extended by a few months but I really want people to keep him on the move. As soon as someone gets bacon they should be almost desperate to get rid of him and keep him moving. He's got a long way to go... There needs to be some sort of timeframe or he'll just flounder around and not really get anywhere. So whoever has Bacon now, GET RID OF HIM, even worst case if it means posting him to the next rider.

Do we need to call the FBI HRT?

Seriously, lets get the little porker on the road. He's got places to go and people to meet.
