Live To Ride. . .

How much do you love riding? Probably not as much as this guy did. David Morales Colon, 22, was shot to death April 22 in Puerto Rico. For his wake, Colon was embalmed and mounted on his Honda CBR600F4i with full Repsol colors.

The work was performed by the Marin Funeral Home in San Juan, which also made headlines two years ago for presenting the embalmed body of Angel Luis “Pedrito” Pantojas Medina standing up in the corner for his own funeral.

Colon will be displayed on his Honda until his burial, scheduled for later this afternoon. As for the bike, it was reportedly a gift from his uncle and brought by his family to the funeral home for the wake. There’s no word on what will happen to the motorcycle after the funeral, but for now, ride on, David, ride on.

  1. Uh…yeah. I’m bike-crazy, but that dude’s got me beat.

    On the other hand, if they’re looking for something to do with the bike after the burial, I’ll take it off their hands.

    That stance is going to call for more than the usual amount of “corkage” to avoid leakage and a Saws-All™ to fit him in the casket.

  4. Yeah, the bike guy is gross, but I thought “Pedrito’s” was really disturbing. Weird thing is, there was an episode of My Name Is Earl (yeah, I watch Earl) that had a funeral home specializing in this same stuff.
    Anywho, I cannot find your obituary page but I figured this is just as good a place as any to post:

  5. Just imagine if they did that to Elvis. They could’ve had him propped up on the toilet at Graceland!
