I told my kids to toss me off the Golden Gate Bridge. They asked "your ashes?" Nope, just feed me to the sharks. Probably not legal.

Once I found out the EFI bikes had hydraulic lifters the thread kind of unraveled.

Speakin 'o ashes...

My Mom passed away, was creamated in accordance with her wishes,  and wanted her remains to come back to the family plot...

Had to buy a concrete "ashes vault" to be buried in the cemetary... an 18" cube that cost about $300.00...

I want my valves to seal,  and not my coffin.

May I recommend Clover Brand valve grinding paste?  ::)

dieing ain;t free..I'm not even sure if u can really jjust toss someone ashes in the ocean, favorite spot or whatever...Can u keep them around in your house like your pets?..I guess for the dead it doesn't matter...this pertains more to the living or quasi dead.

I don't think you can legally dispose of remains, cremated or otherwise, in random spots at your leisure.  If you want to bury at sea you need to get out to international waters, 12 miles from shore I think.

In practice I and lots of people I know have disposed of ashes in water or other wildlife type areas without incident.


Valve grinding paste???  For my coffin???  This is getting weirder. ;)

With cremated remains, it sorta like a "I dont ask... they dont tell" with families taking them home.

But....    I had a gentleman that was a hunter. His buddies wanted a small portion of the remains in a separate container. They had plans to divvy up some into reloaded shotgun shells. A few months later I had occasion to see one of his hunting buddies, and asked how the reloading and the hunt that year with him went.  His response almost had me in tears...   "he couldn't f--k all alive.... and he couldn't hit f--k all dead"

Since this thread has turned a bit off topic, I might as well chime in. I still have my dad waiting in a can for his last ride. When the weather warms, I'll strap him to the pillion and take a long ride in the country. He was an ardent Norton fan, but I think he won't mind the Bullet.  ;) cochi

I 've got a feeling your Pop will love the Bullet, That last ride is a great thing for you to do, make it a good long one.

Thanks guys. My dad and I never agreed on much except when it came to old British Iron. We lived in Argentina when I was young and  he owed an Atlas. He used to take me for short rides, to my mothers horror, on that wonderful beast. I was hooked from a young age. Years later later after we moved to the states, he would tell me of his adventures with the Atlas, his eyes would tear up  and he'd get this look on his face as if he was back in the old country with his Norton. It's funny how much of an impact a bike can have on one's soul. My hats off to the guy who took his dad's body for a last ride. Incredble  amount of love there. Well I guess we should get this thread back on track. cochi :)
