Dead Man Riding

This guy on the bike has been dead for some time. David Morales Colón, a 22-year-old was shot to death in his native Puerto Rico last Thursday, but instead of giving a traditional wake by sticking his body in a coffin, the family decided to stuff him and mount him on his Repsol-liveried Honda CBR600 F4, which was given to him by his uncle while he was still alive. The funeral home which performed the work is gathering a reputation for the unusual service, previously displaying a dead man standing up. I have seen an episode like this in a TV show "My Name Is Earl" before.

Cool huh? But you know when you die, you won't know anything after your initial death? Why should I care for the party I can not attend? I often think that funerals and graves are for living.

  1. i don't think they are going to bury this guy. i bet they take him home and stand him in the corner. he could then be lifted off and put in a chair when someone else wanted to ride the bike.
