STREATOR, Ill. -- Gary Simko is helping bikers take their last ride.
The retired Illinois detective has a specially built hearse that's pulled by a three-wheeled Harley Davidson.
Simko said the hearse is modeled after the carriage that carried outlaw Jesse James to his Missouri grave in 1882.
Simko usually wears a tuxedo shirt, blue jeans, black leather vest and boots when he is on the job.
Sometimes he also puts a single spur on his boots, an old tradition honoring fallen cavalry soldiers.

I thought it was "Live To Ride" not "Die to Ride" :)

Wow!! Cool!! Thanx!! That sidecar hearse Rocks!
The founder of the Harley Davidson Motorcycle Corporation, Arthur Davidson, died and went to heaven.
At the gates, St. Peter told Arthur, "since you've been such a good man and your motorcycles have changed the world, your reward is, you can hang out with anyone you want in Heaven."
Arthur thought about it for a minute and then said, "I want to hang out with God."
St. Peter took Arthur to the Throne Room, and introduced him to God.
God recognized Arthur and commented, "Okay, so you were the one who invented motorcycles, eh?!"
Arthur said, "ya, that's me..."
God commented, "Well, what a big deal in inventing something that's pretty unstable, makes noise and pollution, and can't run without a road?!"
Arthur was apparently embarrassed, but finally spoke, "Excuse me but aren't you the inventor of woman???"
God said, "Ah, yes."
"Well," said Arthur, "professional to professional, you have some major design flaws in your invention.
1. There's too much inconsistency in the front-end protrusion;
2. It chatters constantly at high speeds;
3. Most of the rear ends are too soft and wobble too much;
4. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust;
5. And the maintenance costs are outrageous!!
"Hmmmm, you may have some good points there," replied God, "hold on."
God went to his Celestial supercomputer, typed in a few words and waited for the results. The computer printed out a slip of paper and God read it. "Well, it may be true that my invention is flawed," God said to Arthur, "but according to these numbers, more men are riding my invention than yours."
What the heck. If these guys do this harley thing, then I want to be pulled around in a giant pumpkin hearse. Harley is so mainstream it's almost gay.
Thanks for the heads-up. I'd hate to bust out laughing at a funeral.
When that reaper comes calling ping ...
OK, what Biker Joke Book did you pull that one from.
The Honda Guide to the Universe, Chapter 1. The engrish translation. :-)

They offer a Harley, Hayabusa or Triumph. Depending on how fast you want to be sent off!!
I think the ol' "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust." idea works real well. Then they add me to the kitty litter, if they want to.
yall can tell me how to live, not how to die, but after that final trip, I cannot vote. So you can kiss my ---. I will go the way I want.
Looks like it would get you to the cemetary too fast. Think I'd prefer a horse/buggy.
