Everyone loves Hogs, so for a while now I’ve been pushing for Motorcycles as a topic for the Bad Piggies Weekend Challenge! Now you can build a Hog for your Hog, and Hog while you Hog!
Building a motorcycle in Bad Piggies is pretty simple, because all you need is two wheels and anything in between them can be anything you imagine. To avoid making your piggy bike look like a squared-off pickup truck, simply experiment with assembling parts at an angle. With some practise you can end up with a plausibly realistic suspension setup with functional swing-arm and some self-balancing ability so long as engine torque is applied.
While it can be challenging to create a bike with the “correct” mid-engine, rear wheel drive layout, no one says you can’t create an all wheel drive or even front wheel drive motorcycle. The capability to power the front wheel of a motorcycle is not mechanically impossible, although rarely seen on production models save for some unique examples meant for heavy duty off-road use.
Now that you have a bacon powered motorcycle, all you have to do is find a use for it. Try using the old sandbox levels as a sort of MotoX course, or create multiple small vehicles in Field of Dreams and practise your mad overtaking skills!
If you add wings to your motorcycle you can even do some pretty spectacular wheelies! The small airplane tail parts are relatively light and work nicely to add stability when your front wheel is pointed skywards, similar to how clever management of weight balance and throttle modulation (with no small amount of skill!) can sustain a wheelie in real life.
Now that you have enough inspiration to
break the rules of reinvent motorcycle design, have at it and post your own examples below and on the Pigineering Facepork page!
