MJ Bike to Ride in Cemetery Tribute

6/24/2011 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The customized Michael Jackson motorcycle personally inspected by MJ's kids will be driven through  Forest Lawn cemetery on June 25th to honor the King of Pop on the anniversary of his death.

Over the weekend, Paris Jackson tweeted photos of the family checking out the bike at their Calabasas home. Turns out, the guy who designed it -- Marcell "Porkchop" Miller -- is a friend of the family who happened to be in the neighborhood that day ... and figured he'd bring it by the house.

TMZ spoke with Porkchop ... who told us the bike was a hit with the fam ... and he feels like a ride through Forrest Lawn would be the best way for him to pay his respects on the anniversary of MJ's death tomorrow.

In related news, can you believe it's already been two years???

I guess they couldn't find anything tackier than this. Maybe they could sit a big velvet portrait of him on the seat!

WKTU (103.5 FM) and WBLS (107.5 FM) will spend part of the weekend remembering Michael Jackson, who died two years ago tomorrow.

WKTU will program Jackson's music every hour tomorrow, while WBLS starts today with an extended feature called "Still Ain't It." That will include music, interview clips, reminiscences and other Jackson material. WBLS will then continue to feature Jackson all weekend.

"If you've ever been to a wedding, you know his music," says WKTU program director Rob Miller. "You've danced to his songs. They never get old."

Miller says the celebration of this anniversary is a less intense than last year's, "but I can't think any other artist, really, who touches people the way Michael still does."

This is stupid, Michael never rode a motorcycle, he'd be to afraid he'd fall off and disfigure his face oh wait, he managed to do that without the bike. Tacky!!!
