Harry Joseph “Taco” Bowman, the international president of the American Outlaws Association from 1984 until 1997, will be laid to rest tomorrow, March 16, in Dayton, Ohio.
Bowman, one of the last larger-than-life motorcycle outlaws, died at the beginning of this month of a stroke following a long illness at the Federal Medical Center in Butner, North Carolina. His death was announced Sunday, March 3.
His funeral will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. The Fairgrounds are at the intersection of Main and Stewart Streets in Dayton. His final ride to the Bear Creek Cemetery on the other side of the Miami River, on North Union Road in Madison Township, will begin at noon.
It should be about a four-mile ride.
Needless to say, there will be uniformed and undercover police, automated license plate readers, stingrays and drones everywhere.
