Here's a good one. Right up there with the repair manual that uses a potato to help clean the exhaust pipehttps://www.cartoq.com/royal-enfield-classic-350-popcorn-wacky-video/

Little glitch in the link. Once it loads an address error page, just delete "pipe" or simply click here.

If they just poured some grated cheddar into the gas tank they could enjoy cheesy corn, or better yet, brown sugar and sea salt for caramel kettle corn. Mmmmmmm....kettle corn....with yummy complex hydrocarbons...

On a related note, I was already toying with the idea of rigging up some sort of clamp that'll hold a little form-fitted kettle flush to the exhaust for tea or coffee on the road. Maybe one of those Indian "tiffin" stacking pots lunchpail sets for full-on roadside meals on the move.

I thought the hot tip was cooking dinner on top of a catalytic converter.  If only the RE's stock baloney pipe was rectangular like the separate catalytic converter box under the engine of my BMW F650GS you could warm up a full meal.  I pity the poor owners of the Himalayan. They will never get a hot dinner to stay on their angled exhaust pipe.  They will have to stick with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch.  ;)

That reminds me of a time I was working on a drill rig in Colorado. One of the roughnecks wanted some hot dogs for lunch. He stuck the dog on a stick and held it in the exhaust of a diesel salamander heater.  Later in the shift, he said he wasn't feeling well.  When asked what was wrong, he said "I think I had too many Diesel Dogs".

Looks like our man forgot the butter. He needs to develop a corn injector and recovery devices.
