Feb 1st, 2014 Dying To Ride

Attachment 46749


MECHANICSBURG, Ohio If there was anything that stuck out about Bill Standley when he was alive, it was that he did things exactly the way he wanted to do them, usually while riding a motorcycle or a horse.

This morning, his family and friends gave him a funeral fitting of that life.

Instead of lying down in a casket, Standley sat astride his Harley-Davidson motorcycle in a casket made of Plexiglas and plywood.

They're going to have to refill that hole for awhile.

Yes soon! When thieves dig it up for the Harley.

There was a Harley stolen in San Carlos. The guy had dug a 5 foot hole, driven rebar into the sides, poured concrete in the hole, covered it with dirt, planted lawn, and used an enormous chain to his Harley. A year later thieves dug up his entire lawn, then somehow lifted the concrete and the Harley onto a flatbed truck and left with it all.

This Cemetery Harley - child's play.

I instantly flashed on this image from almost four years ago:

It has bothered me since and now I have another one.
Instant heebie-jeebies!
In looking for that one, I came across this one:

Yeah but those are caskets made to look like cars, Jim, not the same as the bikers.

Oh, and a high mileage '67 Road King? Not worth digging up.

OK, cue the Twilight Zone theme.
In this morning's paper, from the same funeral home in San Juan, P.R.:

I still wonder if he were a jockey, would they have shot his horse for the display.
Or a contortionist? Or a stripper?

This is just fucking awesome.

Harley lovers are some of the most nostalgic people alive. Or dead.

The song is based on a real funeral.

You're right, I checked on those pre-AMF unreliable, oil leaking, hand numbing, rattle-traps today. They're bringing $25 to $30k.
