Did your ancestor ride a Harley? Actually, my Dad did back in the Thirties, years before I was born. Anyway, a company called "Final Ride Products" has released its first batch of mobile cremation/ memorial urns. I am not sure this is an appropriate article for a genealogy newsletter, but I found it to be interesting. Maybe you will too.
Final Ride funeral urns are a modern funeral item. These urns are not designed for use at a cemetery; they are mounted on a motorcycle. Final Ride urns are constructed to hold a generous amount of cremated remains or store personal items and act as a rolling memorial. The intent is that you can take some of the deceased's ashes with you wherever you ride. In short, he or she can still "ride along with you."
The Final Ride Urns are steel tubes that are designed to be bolted to a motorcycle frame although I am sure they could be bolted to most any other object as well. The steel used for the urn chamber itself has a listed strength of over 60,000 pounds. This makes every Final Ride urn quite possibly "tougher than what you mount it to."
Each steel tube can have a logo permanently etched or attached to the end cap, such as a fraternal organization emblem, a logo related to the deceased's occupation, or whatever else seems appropriate.
