Yup, it’s a little looney, but it is kinda’ cool. I mean hot.
So what am I talking about? I’m talking about a fresh collaboration between two America companies that have yielded hot results in more ways than one.
Yes, you read it right, a motorcycle equipped with a working wood-fired grill.
The new machine(s) was rolled out at the 79th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota. Free BBQ was made available to anyone who showed up and test rode an Indian.
As for the machine itself, its a combination of an Indian Darkhorse with a Traeger Ironwood 885 wood pellet grill attached as its sidecar. Both the motorcycle and the grill are fully functional and Traeger says you can even grill your meats while you ride along. Umm… ok.
Traeger crowed about the grill and the bike by saying:
Leave those greasy spoon diners in the rear-view mirror and chow down on juicy brisket, smoky ribs, and killer pulled pork wherever your travels take you.”
The bike/grill combo was “cooked up” by Thor Drake of See See Motorcycles. If you are wondering whether you can buy one of the Indian/Traeger combos, the answer is no. But you may get a chance to see one at other motorcycle shows later in the year.
But who knows, with enough interest…
