Dead Biker Departs on His Harley

David Morales Colon, 22, who was shot to death last week in Puerto Rico, had asked his family to avoid a traditional funeral when he died.

So morticians at Marin Funeral Home propped him up on his trusty Honda, and dressed the young man in his typical riding clothes, helmet included, on top of his beloved motorcycle.

"He loved his motorcycle. It made him feel free from his worries," a mourner said. "We all know he will be happy riding for eternity."

As you can see in the video below, the mortician positioned the body as if he were riding his bike all the way to heaven, though it appears to be little solace to the crying friends and family in attendance.

And yes, this is real.
