    My first reaction to this was weird but after thinking about more I thought how much all of us would like to be remembered and have the send off doing something we all love. I think death is something that we fear but it is just a part of life and albeit too soon for this person his loved ones will have a lasting memory of him on the bike he loved. May he rest in peace now.

    I’m kinda touched by the idea, but also kinda horrified by what it would take to achieve this. To pose a dead body involves breaking rigor mortis. To do that requires physically breaking sinew, tendon, and possibly bone. Yeargh.

    Great, zombies on wheels. George Romero’s next zombie film practically writes itself.

    I wonder how they took him to the graveyard. Maybe just tow him?

    I thought I wanted to be cremated. Now I think this is what I want for a funeral!

    At my grandfather’s funeral we over heard someone say ‘He looks so natural”. I joked to my siblings that ‘natural’ would be in his bathrobe and recliner, feet up and snoring. Cue giggling, snickering, lots of hostile glares and a fast exit from the room.

    Was I the only one waiting for the guy to move?

    Fantastic product placement coup for Honda/Repsol!

    I’ve embalmed a few bodies in my day but I have NO idea how you’d get the body to hold that pose… Maybe inject a REALLY strong embalming fluid and once done, place him on the bike? I can’t imagine this was easy to do.

    But, holy cow, it’s awesome.

    Oh, so there’s the Lazy Gun I’ve been searching for all this time!

    @23: Haha, “Against a Dark Background” was also the first thing that came to my mind when reading the headline.

    I hope this trend doesn’t catch on or when my turn comes they’ll have my dead body hunched over the keyboard of my Macbook.

    I don’t want to think about what kind of meat armature they had to put in just to make him sit up and look forward. that’s wack.

    Just like in the UK movie Psychomania.

    Only one word in the english language properly describes the depth and breadth of this:

    Classy.

    They should check the suspension on that Honda. Looks like a stiff ride.

    *rim shot*

    Thank you, good night.

    Reminds me of those pics from the Victorian era they made of dead people (so they had a memory of them if they hadn’t take a pic of the person before). Pretty spooky stuff, but somehow, it’s also a nice idea that they pay a tribute to what was so important to that guy…

    Brought to you by the same people that prepped the dead man standing up http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZXY3Cip_FA

    Looks like a toy motorbike I had when I was a kid. I wonder if he’ll also remain seated if I pushed/drove it down the stairs?

  24. JIMWICh says:

    Am I the only one who thinks the only way to improve this to utter perfection would have been to display the bike up on its front wheel as though he was doing a ‘stoppie’?

    What a great send off. I’m sure if he was – would of been – or could of been looking down he’d be so proud of his family and friends. This shows a true act of love.

    Wait long enough and he’ll be a spitting image of the Ghost Rider.

    They finally made Weekend at Bernie’s III.
