Bike for one's final tour

Was at the Tokyo Motorcycle Show last week, and there was a booth for this bike designed for a motorcyclist's very last ride on this earth.





Some people may find this much luggage room of use while living though.
Certainly has more luggage room that my car!

Put a lumber rack on top and a compound miter saw mounted to the slide out roller table and it would be perfect for a nomadic contractor.

Cheers,

It is not a new idea, our local undertaker in Axminster offers a similar service with a Triumph fitted with a coffin carrying sidecar.

Oh well, it was the first time I saw one here in Japan.

How about this for hurrying up the need for a motorcycle hearse:
Missile launcher bike!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
