Some Russian Dude Made a Wood-Burning Motorcycle

The down-side of a golf cart is the slow speed, the down-side of a motorcycle is the exposure to road hazards, the down-side of a side car is the reduced handling of the motorcycle, and this vehicle combines all of those failings with the need to split firewood before going anywhere. 

Yeah, this Russian guy made himself a wood-fired motorcycle, because, like artesianal pizzas, apparently that makes bikes better. Yup, the engine of this car has been modified to run off of the gases released during the burning of wood that happens in the sidecar. The result is a motorcycle that tops out at 50 mph and looks like it could have rolled right out of the Fallout series of games. Of course, sometimes it seems like significant portions of Russia are just manifestations of Fallout 3.
