There will likely be plenty of space so you won’t have to drive yourself and will be close to your loved one during their last ride.

You can have their motorcycle lead the funeral procession from the funeral home to the cemetery or you can ask members of a bike club to escort the funeral so there is a line of bikes and they are considered a part of the service. This will also give any bikers who were friends of the deceased a way to feel like they are apart of the service.
Some people like classic cars and would like to have their last ride be in one of them. They may own a classic car or even have several in their collection. If they own the vehicle it can be a nice tribute to have the body transported to the cemetery in that vehicle. A friend or family member of the deceased can drive the vehicle and other members can follow in their own car. If your deceased loved one did not have a classic car on their own but you feel they would have preferred their last one to be in one, you can rent one or even borrow one from someone you know and use it.
