On Friday morning a customized 2007 Suzuki GSXR 600 motorcycle was stolen from local rider Frank Hettlinger and he is asking all area riders to please contact him if it is spotted. The bike had a front disc brake lock and was chained to the wall and a security video shows the culprits riding the bike out of a gated garage. The Texas plate is 4PU426.

"They knew what they were doing," said Frank Hettlinger. "The fairings are one of a kind custom aftermarket, so there’s not another paint job like that."

If you know the whereabouts of this motorcycle, please contact Hettlinger at Fhettlin@gmail.com.

A rider up in Ohio figured out how to keep the shiny side up for all of eternity when he built himself a see-through coffin to house him and his 1967 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide. These photos have simply got to be seen to be believed! Major kudos to the memory of this biker because there aren't many people whose funeral receives international media attention.
