Funeral Attire

Post  2wheelsagain on Thu 18 Dec 2014, 1:29 pm

I’m going to a riding mates funeral tomorrow.
I’m unsure whether to ride or drive It will be a 500km trip. I suspect he'd like a few bikes to turn up Laughing
Would you ride in riding gear or dress appropriately for a funeral and drive?

He’s a close mate and rode a Bandit 1250S. A member here too but only posted twice.

Funeral Attire

Ask yourself the same Question would you want your mates to ride or drive to your funeral, as for attire funerals should be about celebration of that persons life so why dress in black funeral attire, i know its sad he has passed away but would he want everyone to be sad, nice jeans and shirt under your bike jacket

You knew him better than us mate, so if you reckon he'd appreciate you in bike gear go for it.  Smile

And if anyone questions you, tell them firmly why you have dressed that way.

What ever you feel he would want you to do. If he rode and would like others to ride, that's what I'd do.

I would want you to wear bike gear if you rode to the funeral , ( can always wear black bike gear anyway ) He was a bike mate , so I doubt anyone that matters to him would even question what you were wearing .......I'm sure they were no stranger to seeing him in bike attire when he rode , & I'm sure he would be chuffed to have some bikes at his send off / celebration.

Thanks lads you make a lot of sense as usual. 
However the weather looks like it might force my hand. Thunderstorms ate forecast for tomorrow and we're in the middle of a big one now. Bugger because you had me riding.  Will check the forecast in the morning but it's not looking promising.

I rode to my sons parade at Kapooka a couple of months ago. Dress code was suit and tie!
I rode with the suit pants on, wet weather pants over them. Had the shirt on under my motorcycle jacket. Carried the shoes, tie and suit jacket in the top box.
Got changed in the carpark

Being there is all that matters. Dress code is optional.

+1

Having been to way too many funerals, it does not matter. As long as you know and respect what his wishes would be.

My guess is that he's had a word in the Big Fellas ear and ordered up some inclement weather just to see who will ride to see their mate off and who will cage it. 
Just trying to make light of it. No offence. 
As stated previously, it's about remembering your mate and the good times that you shared.
