Default Man Buried on Motorcycle

A man in Ohio wanted to be buried on his Harley and had been working on a special casket to do so for the last couple of years. He wanted the casket to be see-through, so that his friends and family could see him on his last ride (the funeral procession).

I think it's pretty cool. I know some may think it's a little morbid, or maybe a little "too much", but if that was his dying wish - I think it's great that he got to fulfill it and that his family stuck to the plan.

I knew a man who was a long haul trucker his entire life. He even died sitting behind the wheel while at a rest stop.
He had requested that instead of a hearse his casket be strapped to a flatbed trailer and pulled by his semi. That's just what his family did. They made a trip around the town square before heading to the cemetery.

Is anyone thinking grave-robbers here?

Well, maybe not for a Harley; but what if it was an actual motorcycle?

Now THAT'S they way it should be done,
Must be a bloody deep hole in the ground to fit that lot 6ft down. And what type of glue did they use to keep him in the seat? Talk about watch out for speed bumps and pot holes
