A new spin on the phrase "when pigs fly", courtesy of a paragliding Harley-Davidson

"When pigs fly" is a term often used to describe something that people assume will never happen. 113 years after the first Harley Davidson was produced one became a plane, and in doing so became a flying pig...er, Hog.

This is a stunt for the new generation of Internet fame, YouTube stars and anyone who has lit a firecracker aimed at their genitalia for the lulz. In this age of people trying anything for kicks, a Harley-Davidson took flight attached to a parasail, near Mount Timpanogos in the Wasatch Range of Utah.

We aren't paragliding experts, but a heavy cruiser probably isn't the ideal bike, weighing on at 562 pounds for a new 1200 Sportster compared to 50 pounds of paragliding gear that a pilot typically wears.

The crazy folks at Cloud 9 Toys and Timpanogos Harley pulled off the paragliding Harley-Davidson stunt and video:

Stunt director Jared Willardsen of Virality Farm came up with the idea for the paragliding Harley-Davidson, saying in an email interview that “it was a natural for me to come up with something that had never been done before” for the folks over at Timpanogos Harley.

“Because the Harley-Davidson weighs over 700 pounds, it was really hard for us the get the right winds and weather for Steve to fly successfully,” said Willardsen. “We had been working on the project for over a year, and I’m glad we didn’t kill Steve in the process—there were a few close calls.”

One can only imagine. The thought process behind A: choosing a Harley, B: deciding to make it fly, and C: actually pulling  it off are equal parts crazy and awesome.

Also, pigs (HOGs) apparently do fly.
