No you can not, lad.
You have to remove the rocker cover and bolt it back downside up.
You can even cook scrambled eggs in it.

I can see some proper research is needed here Ger lad, not too keen on scrambled, I like me eggs over easy, with bacon has browns scrapple and sausages on the side, coffee Black and sweet, and a 15% tip if its a Tuesday.... crazy

Shaun -

I'm sorry to tell you that BSA got the heat under control on their OHV models like the A65, they don't have blazing hot sidevalve flatheads like an M21 or M20, with fins to help transfer the heat to the meat pie.

Just a smooth-ish alloy valve cover well away from the heat, you can almost lay your hand on it, it's that cool.

So you can enjoy the Gold Wing-like touring performance of the new modern OHV bike, but you'll have to save the meat pies for the 37-inch Flathead Commander or it's like ......

A sad day indeed, if you cannot cook food atop your motor, my man. BUT... and you'll notice that's a

MIGHTY BIG BUT....

You can always SIT on your meat pie to heat it. wink

Or tuck it up into your armpit.
Incubate that mo fry!

Who knows, maybe it'll hatch and you can feed your friends too? shocked

What.... shocked

You mean to say, that this here 'Touring' bike, can't even warm up a Steak & Ale pie... eek

Well that's the LAST time I buy a bike from a Plumber.... mad

About as much good as having a Radio on a bike, all that wasted heat warming up the Globe, when it could be used to warm up a Pie. What WAS BSA thinking, a front car type brake that don't work, and an engine that you can't cook with... frown

If you want to cook anything, KS, retard the ignition timing and lean off the fuel mixture! Obvious, really!

What exactly is a meat pie? Are there animal digestive organs as ingredients? Or blood?

Hillbilly bike lad, you're having a laugh aren't you, you don't know what meat pie is... shocked

Get off these buttons lad, fire up the bike, and get out more. Why there are even pies containing Mussels lad, from your actual Sea... wink

Get an early A65 with steel side panels and a single carb (A65 Star / Rocket)
Then you can place your food inside the panels, where the hot oil tank will warm your pasty.

Just don't forget it, because, "out of sight, out of mind"

I've hear tales of the bloody, literally, stuff the British eat...I knew a girl with Scottish parents and they ate animal innards...My Italian relatives ate food that was still moving...My Russian relatives ate boiled chicken chased down with volka... I don't drink or eat much meat.. grin
Fire up the bike? Hey, I'm the builder of speed record holding Triumphs and a new one is coming soon. grin ..My Honda dirt bike is broken and my Buell can make it out our long muddy driveway..And it's 40 F and raining... smirk

"Getting out more" isn't going to help find meat pies, not over here!

"Pies" have lots of sugar, fruit, chocolate, etc except in New Jersey where a "Pie" is a pizza.

But a Pie with Kidneys in it? Good luck trying to sell THOSE over here ... ! People will eat Chicken Gizzards, Livers, and Hearts, but they have to be fried crisp so you can't tell what it is .....

You forgot the stomachs which, when not washed out properly, contain small stones which make you feel your teeth frown

Too late... Gizzards are the stomachs I was thinking of. Had to check my dictionary.
I remember them from my time in Brasil.
Hated them while my wifes aunt thought she did me a favor with the nasty things.

I don't eat gizzards because of the stuff you find in them. Hearts I don't like much.

But I'll eat fried chicken livers all day long if you let me. I try not to, because the things have huge amounts of cholesterol, but they sure are good ....

Those of us here in the REAL WORLD don't eat all of that strange stuff. Just normal stuff, like mountain oysters.
