Top Ten Strangest Motorcycle Stories of 2012
10. The Hayabusa Hearse
In 2011, Ray Biddess, a reverend in England, established a Guinness World Record for the world’s fastest motorcycle hearse with a converted Triumph Rocket III clocked going 114.1 mph.
This year, that record was broken by the Faster Pastor, Paul Sinclair, another English clergyman, and his converted Suzuki Hayabusa. Sinclair posted a speed of 117.6 mph to claim a new speed record for a motorcycle hearse.
The people at Guinness have yet to verify Sinclair’s claims so officially, the record still belongs to Rev. Biddess.
