A Real Ghost Rider: Dead Puerto Rican Man Opts For Motorcycle Instead Of Casket

April 28, 2010


David Morales Colón is a Puerto Rican man who passed away in a gun-related incident last week. And, instead of a traditional casket, is being displayed atop a motorcycle at his wake. Vroom vroom -- I'm comin' God!

Yesterday and today, callers who stopped to pay their final respects to the late Mr. Colón got a bit of a surprise. Instead of the traditional presentation of the body in a casket, Mr. Colón's corpse, dressed in casual duds and sunglasses, was instead posed in a very lifelike position atop his Repsol-liveried Honda CBR600 F4. According to Puerto Rico's Primera Hora newspaper, the motorcycle was given to the victim by his uncle, and upon Mr. Colón's untimely demise, family members delivered the bike to the funeral home specifically for this unusual wake.

Different strokes for different folks, you know? When I go I want to be displayed laying in bed, pantless with a laptop on my chest. And if my little rigor mortis just so happens to be hanging out the pee-hole in my boxers, well, that's how I want you to remember me.

Hit the jump for two more pictures including an eerie closeup, along with a video.
