This Is What Happens When You Mate an Indian Motorcycle with a Traeger Grill

Starting Friday (August 2), around 500,000 motorcycle riders are expected to flock to Sturgis, South Dakota, for a momentous, 10-day long party. There are going be a lot of motorcycles there, there’s going to be music and, of course, tons of food and booze.

The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally first took place in 1938, and in the time that has passed since the world has seen a lot of exciting motorcycles being presented at the event. We’re not sure though if anyone thought of mating a grill with a bike before.

This year, Sturgis attendees will get a chance to eat their meals right off the sidecar of an Indian motorcycle.

Based on an idea by custom builder Thor Drake of See See Motorcycles, the contraption you see here comprises an Indian Springfield Darkhorse motorcycle and a Traeger Ironwood 885 wood pellet grill installed in the sidecar.

The grill is fully functional, and its builder says it will be fired up and cooking lunch at the Indian Motorcycle display. Only riders who demo an Indian Motorcycle from August 2 – August 4 will get a change to eat off the bike though.

As for the menu, Trager Grills promises juicy brisket, smoky ribs, and killer pulled pork. 

“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 company said in a statement.

After the Sturgis Rally ends, no one says what is to happen to the bike. Chances are it will trek some more motorcycle shows across the U.S.

Since the first edition in 1938, the Sturgis Rally has been held each year, except during the Second World War, on account of logistic constraints caused by gasoline rationing.

The event has consistently drawn around half a million people to the city. The record was set in 2015 when 1,000,000 arrived on the scene during the ten days.
