The Guinness folks are responsible for sorting out all sorts of life questions. You know, like; which domestic cat has the loudest purr on the planet? Or maybe; what's the heaviest weight ever lifted by the human tongue? Of course, they're also responsible for keeping track of all sorts of automotive records, including the one depicted in the video after the jump: the world's fastest motorcycle hearse. This isn't the first time we've seen a chariot of the dead on three wheels, but it is the first model owned and operated by a legitimate man of the cloth.

Reverend Ray Biddiss is the man behind a customized Triumph Rocket III that's good for a top speed of 114.1 mph. While still technically awaiting confirmation, Biddiss is confident that his 20,000 machine will take the title of world's fastest motorcycle hearse with ease. Hit the jump to check out a video of his top-speed run.

A new record has now been set by the Suzuki Hayabusa Hearse, an actual motorcycle, on the same track. The Rocket did 114.1 mph over two miles, but the Hayabusa, did 115.2 mph over just one mile! It then went on to hit 117.6 mph over two miles. You can see the video here: http://youtu.be/S-MRwKvdQqQ

They should stand a casket up in the back of the hearse part horizontally, that way if one of those drivers loses control and smashes into something, they already have part of the burial taken care of.
