Ashes On High Speed Motorcycle Chase

Almost like straight out of a B-movie script, a 19 year son, Jack Ball, in the UK, took his father's ashes for a last motorcycle ride. His father, recently passed away from lung cancer, was a bike-nut. Even when on his deathbed, he wanted to go for one last ride on his precious Triumph motorcycle.

After he died and was cremated, his son decided to grant his father his last wish, and take him for his ultimate ride. The son loaded the ashes on his father's Triumph and rode off into the sunset (at least, that's what the Hollywood scriptwriters would have done). Unfortunately this was not the way it was going to end.

The Police spotted the young lad riding the powerful motorcycle and gave pursuit (do not know why?? I presume it's because he's very young, and the bike big & powerful). Andy drove through red lights, crossed on to the wrong side of a motorway, went up the wrong way on roundabouts and forced other drivers to swerve out of the way while riding at 70 mph.

Eventually the Police stopped chasing him, and patiently waited for him at his home, where he was arrested.

Jack is hoping to actually join the Police force after finishing university. He stated "My dad would have killed me if he had still been alive. When I get in the police I plan to use this as an example of what not to do. I want to turn it in to a positive. But for now, I just want to move on and get on with my life".

Jack holds a provisional license, which entitles him to ride up to 125cc bikes. The Judge sentenced Jack to a community order for 12 months with 200 hours unpaid work. He was banned from driving for 18 months and ordered to pay £100 costs.

Sad. But somehow I don't think he'll be joining the Police force...
