Motorcycle riding has hazards associated with it so maybe the idea of a living will isn't so far fetched. Something akin to:



Living Will Form

I, ______________, being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means.. Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of pinhead partisan politicians who couldn't pass ninth-grade biology, if their lives depended on it, or lawyers/doctors/hospitals interested in simply running up the bills.
If a reasonable amount of time passes, and I fail to ask for at least one of the following:
______ a Martini ______ a Margarita ____ a Scotch and soda ______ a Bloody Mary ______ a Gin and Tonic _______ BEER ______ a Steak ______ Lobster or crab legs ______ the remote control ______ a bowl of ice cream ______ Latest Moto Mag______ sex ______ or chocolate:
It should be presumed that I won't ever get any better. When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes, and call it a day. At this point, it is time to call the New Orleans Jazz Funeral Band to come do their thing at my funeral and ask all of my friends to raise their glasses to toast the good times we have had.
Signature:__________________________ Date: _________________________

NOTE: I also hear that in Ireland they have a Nursing Home with a Pub.. The patients are happier and they have a lot more visitors. Some of them don't even need embalming when their time comes. If anyone knows the name of this happy place, PLEASE send me the data so I can pre-register.

:yeahsmile: :cheers:

Hah! Nice letter.

I have one that I keep in my riding jacket at all times. It has emergency contact info, confirms I'm an organ donor, my blood type, states I don't have any known medicinal allergies, and states that if I'm in an unrecoverable vegetative state and only being sustained through a life support system, I want them to pull the plug and to cremate the rest of me after salvaging my viable organs for others.

It is my understanding that, regardless of my intentions, a lot of those things can be overturned by living relatives. So, I've made sure that my immediate family knows my wishes in these matters.

If you're curious to read my letter, I'll post the text when I get back to my PC at home.
