Hayabusa Hearse Does 117 MPH

Some might find hearse commercials a bit disturbing, but when it comes to UK's Paul Sinclair (aka the Faster Pastor), we're simply talking business and a strong passion for bikes.
Paul has established his motorcycle hearse business 11 years ago and it looks like the idea had a lot of fans. It may of course sound a bit macabre, but none of the customers filed any complaints. While some guys believe that a funeral should involve a car hearse, some bikers think it's actually way cooler to ride in style, even if it's the last ride.

Paul offers a Triumph, a Harley-Davidson and a Hayabusa as main vehicles for the sidecar hearse. And since Hayabusa comes with too much a legendary heritage, from slow rides in mourning to doing 117.6 mph (189.2 km/h) on the track, the distance was rather short.

Paul had his hearse Busa officially timed and got the said speed in a two-mile run, making it the world's fastest motorcycle hearse. Will a record attempt be made while serving a customer? Way to go, sir!
