Was a guy who ate a VW beetle years back as a stunt. chop into small pieces and swallow pieces coated with oil or lard, Swallow only couple pounds a day and have a shot of ex-lax to encourage rapid passage through system. Took awhile but he was being paid by day and for completed job. He was also circus sword swallower and stuntman- knew what he was doing. Motorcycle wouldn't be any great deal for someone like him. Drunken college boys on the other hand could get throats and stomachs cut from inside, known to happen. .
