The Last Rev
The Passing of a fellow club brother or sister is something
we never hope to have to endure. The reality of it is if you live long enough that day will come. There is a tradition within
the motorcycle club culture that has been around for many years, it’s called the last Rev. The Road Capt while standing beside his/her bike starts their engine then everyone standing beside their bike starts
their engines, the Road Capt starts the rev 3 to 5 times with everyone else joining in doing the same except the tail gunner
who just waits until everyone else has finished. When the Road Capt stops the rev and all bikes are just idling, then only
the Tail Gunner gives the last rev then everyone mounts their bikes and rides away as quiet as possible. Normally the last rev is done at the cemetery unless there will be no cemetery service. Then it will be done at the
funeral home after the last viewing just prior to everyone leaving.
The significance of this
is, to alert Heaven that a Biker is on their way
to ride to roads in heaven.
