Motorcyclists show support in Lexington for one of their own killed in crash

Lexington's Randolph Scott was passionate about people and about doing things to help them, and he was equally passionate about motorcycles, particularly Harley-Davidsons.

Scott, 71, who died May 7 when a car pulled into the path of his motorcycle in Laurel County, met lots of folks riding bikes, and about 150 of them rode their motorcycles to say goodbye Monday during Scott's funeral.

The riders followed the hearse from Centenary United Methodist Church, where the funeral was held, to Blue Grass Memorial Gardens, where Scott was buried.

Scott owned several Harleys, and his son-in-law, Robert Mullins, rode one of them in the funeral procession: an Ultra Classic Special Edition. Scott probably would have smiled at that.
