WATCH: On The Highway To Heaven...Ohio Man Is Buried Astride His Harley


An Ohio man's family has fulfilled his dying wish — that he be buried astride his beloved Harley-Davidson motorcycle. His burial required an extra-large cemetery plot to accommodate a Plexiglas casket for Billy Standley and his 1967 Electra Glide cruiser. Embalmers prepared his body with a metal back brace and straps to ensure he'll never lose his seat. Standley's family said he'd been planning it for years. He said he didn't just want to ride off to heaven, he wanted the world to see him do it in a see-through casket.
