    Ohio man's wish fulfilled as he is buried on motorcycle

    The dying wish of an Ohio motorcycle aficionado that he be buried astride his beloved Harley-Davidson was fulfilled by his family -- although it wasn't easy.
    Billy Standley's body was prepped by five embalmers with a metal back brace and straps, The Dayton Daily News reported. He was affixed on top of his bike – a 1967 Electra Glide cruiser-- which was then placed inside a Plexiglas casket. For five years, the box stayed in Standley's garage, one of his sons told the newspaper.
    Standley also had to buy additional burial plots that could accommodate the casket.
    His family told the paper he had planned the funeral for years.
    Standley died of lung cancer Sunday at the age of 82.

    they should dig him up in a few years, he'll look rad with a skull face peering from his corporate Harley gear on his corporate Harley cycle.

    You have a problem with the fact that they still make Harley cycles in the US?

    I have no intention of stopping. If the day comes I can't support it anymore, I guess I'll have to go the trike route. :depressed:
