MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. - Bikers will tell you that riding the open road is not only a lifestyle, but it's in their blood. A local cemetery is giving bikers a chance to commemorate that passion.

Skyway Memorial Gardens in Palmetto is opening a bikers section. You can customize a gravestone to include a picture of you on your bike. You can have a life-size motorcycle made of stone on top of your grave -- or even a Harley-Davidson casket.

The section will be called "Bikers Heaven." It will have 200 grave sites only available for bikers and their families.
