We've seen the ultimate motorcycle rides for bikers before; a way to go to your grave using a motorcycle (many funeral parlors now offer such a deal, carrying your coffin on a motorcycle). It's not a bad way to go for your last ride {link Open link link in a new window}-{link Open link link in a new window}-{link Open link link in a new window}--{list Open link in a new window}..

Ghost Ride Urn

But there's an ultimate, ultimate, last ride available, or at least will be available if you help out. It's a crowd-funding project at Indiegogo and it's called the Ghost Ride Urn Open Indiegogo link in a new window.

The project involves using scrap engines, and turning the cylinder into an urn. And inside the urn, you place the ashes of the defunct biker. A fitting last rest place .... right? Not a bad idea.

Ghost Ride Urn

Nice idea, but obviously only applies to bikers that are to be cremated, and ... for those willing to pay US$1000 for such an urn. Of course it's not a novel idea using a part of a motorcycle as urn (link Open link in a new window), but it's the first time I see an engine used.

Bill died at 82 years, and his wish was to be buried with his Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and so it was to be. You will need to click the headline to actually see the body on his motorcycle (there are people who do not like seeing dead bodies).

Friday, January 11, 2013 - Dead Biker Rides His Motorcycle

Dead Man Riding Motorcycle
Creepy, and the problem is that it's not the first time that this has happened. A funeral parlor, on the biker's request, instead of putting the corpse in a casket for mourners to see, mounted the man on his favorite motorcycle. So the dead embalmed biker is sitting on his motorcycle in the funeral parlor. Creepy..?? Sounds more like a George A. Romero zombie movie in the make.

Like I said, it's not the first time, but I still find it creepy. On top of that the biker is not ATGATT, but then at this stage, does he really care? I can't find where this happened, and more important.... did they bury the motorcycle with him??
