Every time I eat bacon, which is about 4 times a week, I notice later on in the day a distinct odor in when I urinate.
Its not really a problem, since I'm normally the only one around when I pee, but I'm curious about it.
Does anyone else notice or get this same effect?

Nitrates used in cured meats will pass through your urine only partially processed by your system, and there is a good chance you are smelling the biproduct of that.
See if a non-nitrate "Sunday Bacon" does the same thing. I'm betting it won't.
