My friend Edward "Ed" Allington last resting place, he was cremated a few years back...

He was a celebrated sculptor and teacher in London GB, as well as being a dedicated rider.

Very nice.I have my old peanut tank that my daughter asked me to never git rid of cause it has scratch mark from my chihuahua riding with me,but having two daughters there'd be fighting over who got it and that's the reason I started searching and to my surprise how I found those and figured if I didn't know about them there was others that didn't know.

Actually, my plan is to make a full plaster cast of me in some suitable pose. Then my ashes will be mixed with cement and the result will be placed in the graveyard. Until the authorities get told about it at least!

Suitable pose? You mean as if you are sitting on a bike...but then without the bike? I think it will look astonishing.
