I saw this. Pretty cool and sick at the same time. This reminds me of the Australian dude that kept his dads `hyde` with all the tattoos, had it framed and hangs it in his house. Gross.

Why is it clear? Is it going to remain above ground?

I'd like to be buried with speakers and a hard drive built into my casket with say a 50,000 song library. I'd like passers-by my grave to be able to just faintly hear me rocking out into eternity. A little sub that just lightly shakes the earth, fuckin' A.

What I haven't quite worked out yet is a perpetual power source and some sort of update system. I'd like to think my estate will be in some sort of trust. You know and my trustee be all able to say man you're going to like this shit and hook me up with some new music.

I've thought about this quite a little.

If I was the Harley dude I'd want to be mounted on top of a pole that rotates.

So they just busted the guy that lives across the street from one of my rentals for murder. A few years ago I did a bunch of landscaping there. He'd come over and bullshit. He took some of my peonies for his wife to transplant. Turns out fifteen years ago in Indiana he stabbed a girl 33 times.

I think they think it will keep the bike from becoming a rusty mess by keeping the moist dirt off of everything. I don't think they did it to preserve "him" since you could plant him sans box and with all the embalming chemicals even the worms wouldn't touch him.

Ken they have that...A solar powered headstone that plays MP3s. I don't remember where I saw it, but I know I did somewhere.

Creepy when you find out that you've rubbed shoulders with a killer. When I worked at a club in New Orleans, the daytime DJ was dating one of the "entertainers". One day she didn't show up (nothing unusual for a stripper, they work when they want to). After three days some of her friends began to worry.

Turns out the DJ had killed her and she was in the trunk of his car the whole time.

Jeepers Creepers.​

In a couple hundred years... they won't be sure what a 'harley' is. I love how seroiusly they did it tohugh... it's a little bit tacky but I guess if thats what the guy really wanted, you can't complain he got his wish.

I have also thought about this and believe that it merits a rant:

This is one of the stupidest egocentric and short sighted travesties I have seen in a while. Why would anybody care what they are buried with? It isn't like having his bike in the grave will have any possible effect on his afterlife, even if there is one. (That can be a rant for another day) This just relates to the whole personification of machines. A bike is no more a he or a she than a hammer. It is a machine and it is an it. A bike doesn't treat you well or poorly, it either functions properly or it doesn't, that is up to you. A machine has no soul, however if you have one a certain combination of parts may resonate more strongly with yours than another combination of parts might. Finally, if you are dead and have a machine of some value, why would you remove it from those who might appreciate it. If you have no family or they don't appreciate it then have it sold, give it to the kid down the street or donate it to a worthy cause. Sticking it in the ground to rot is wasteful and stupid.


Ooops, I forgot it was a Harley and has no value. Nevermind!!!

I agree Ken. Just the dollar value of the bike and unique funeral preparation possibly helping a family member, maybe a grandkids college or something is far better then that dumb act.

For the record, I plan to be buried with my GTO.....but only because it is highly likely it would require more money and effort than worth it to seperate the person from the metal. As bobdog can attest, everything I do in that car starts with the phrase "watch this" so it is only a matter of time before my luck runs out.

"Lets unseize the rear brakes."

Does burn out. Doesn't unseize the brakes.

"Let's take it for a spin. It'll be fine."

Tires are older than me. Brakes are seized. Said million year old tires have 7psi in them.

"Watch this."

Launches the thing to open up barrels (fun ps) then CRACK CRACK CRACK CRACK. Fan shroud fell into fan. Geets pulls the biggest zip tie i've ever seen in my life from his ass.

"Sorted."

Thinking about this some more if Harley don't use this as part of a lifestyle ad campaign they are missing out on a huge marketing opportunity.

Rear brakes weren't seized, clutches in the posi were stuck together from sitting.


somedays I am a horrible ham fisted redneck. Last night I took my daughter out in the jeep and taught her how to say "yeeehaw" while I spun donuts in a snow covered parking lot.

Nothing. Nothing at all.

the non car guys a work thought I was crazy because when they forgot to plow the parking lot I hopped in my jeep at lunch time and slid sideways figure eights around the light poles for half an hour. Keep in mind I work in the corp headquarters of a large bank. Most of my co-workers didn't get it including the ones that said I had excellent Tokyo drift skills.
