Planning a loved ones funeral can be hard, but it’s important to remember that it’s also an opportunity to celebrate their life. If your family member or close friends was a keen biker, have you thought about incorporating their passion into their funeral? Not only can these personal touches make you feel closer to them but every send-off should be special.
Here are some top ideas for planning a biker funeral.
Choose a motorbike hearse
Traditional modes of transport aren’t your only option when it comes to funeral vehicles. If you’d like something a little different, a motorbike hearse is a great gesture for motorbike lovers. Plus, fellow riders can follow behind in a motorbike procession.
Design a custom casket
Bespoke caskets are becoming increasingly popular. With options to inject some colour or design something completely unique, you can choose a casket that reflects the individuality of your loved one such as a motorcycle print.
Have a themed floral tribute made
Flowers are often an important part of a funeral and a great way of personalising the send-off. Floral tributes can be made in a range of colours and designs, for example, in the shape of a motorbike, in the colours of their motorbike club and more.
Create memorial patches
Some club members may wear memory patches on their jackets to commemorate a deceased biker. To go along with this tradition, why not have a unique patch made including their nickname or death date so everyone has something special to remember them by?
Arrange a drive-by salute
To commemorate the deceased, a drive-by is a way of paying your respects to a fellow biker. If you plan on scattering their ashes, the parade can pass the location on route or accompany the body to the final resting spot.
