In America, they buried biker riding on a motorcycle
The man who traveled across America on his motorcycle in 1967, was buried with him. 82-year-old Bill Standley was buried in a transparent glass box, where he sat astride his motorcycle Harley-Davidson.
His daughter Dorothy Brown said that it was the desire of his father. 18 years ago, Bill joked over who will get his bike after his death. "What should I do? I have two sons, but only one motorcycle, "said Bill. Then his daughter said, "Dad, then we will bury you with it." A few weeks later the man told his children that it is a great idea. Bill loved to travel. When he was young, he left home at age 13 and began to work on a ranch. As a result, he bought the bike and traveled on it 49 states out of 50.
He soon started a family, but a passion for travel and has not disappeared. To fulfill the wish of his father, his sons built a box made of plexiglass to put it back together with a motorcycle. Also three burial sites were ordered. The people at the funeral were simply at a loss. One witness said: "A lot of people after the death of want to go through the pearly gates, and some to ride on a motorcycle."
