MECHANICSBURG, OH-What began as a joke nearly 20 years ago was realized on a recent snowy Ohio day.

Longtime rider Bill Standley always loved his 1967 Harley. So, several years ago he and his sons began building a glass container that would carry him, on his motorcycle, to his grave.

Standley's daughter said it simply, "Some get to walk through the pearly gates, others ride."

Watch for more on a truly unique ceremony for a man who will forever be the ultimate easy rider.
