We debated whether or not we should create a new category in WordPress for this story. Since we  hope that we will not see another kooky story like this one for a while we decided against it. For now we will just post it under Odd Stories.

David Morales Colón, the dead gentlemen in the picture to your left, was shot to death last Thursday and apparently his family thought he would rather be a atop his Repsol-liveried Honda CBR600 F4 versus lying horizontal in a coffin.

So what bike would you like to ride into the afterlife on?

Yes! You Could Own the “GatorBike”

The owner of Wildlife Rehab center in Hernando, Fl, Jim Jablon, has found quite a creative way to raise money for neglected or abused exotic pets. It’s called the GatorBike and it’s definitely a head turner.  Jim is holding a raffle for this mean looking machine for a May drawing.  He’s selling 1,000 tickets at $130 each. The GatorBike is made from a complete alligator skin, wrapped around an $80,000 custom-built chopper.

We could not find a website where a raffle ticket could be purchased, but did find some contact information for the organization.
