$80K bike stolen in Houston

$80K motorbike stolen in US found in Philippines
MANILA, Philippines (AP) -- An $80,000 motorcycle stolen in Texas
last year from Hollywood screenwriter Skip Woods has been recovered
in the southern Philippines, officials said Thursday.
The custom-made chopper was found Tuesday by police in Cagayan
de Oro city, said Jose Justo Yap, regional director for the
National Bureau of Investigation.
Woods, a collector of custom-made vehicles, wrote the screenplay
for "Swordfish," "Hitman" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."
His chopper was among 14 motorcycles, three all-terrain
vehicles, two SUVs, a sports car, a shotgun and ammunition for
assault rifles recovered by police in raids in Cagayan de Oro and
nearby Bukidnon province, Misamis Oriental provincial police Chief
Graciano Mijares said.
The U.S. FBI sought assistance in the recovery of Woods'
motorcycle, Yap said.
An American private investigator representing Woods said the
screenwriter was surprised that his motorcycle, which was stolen
from the parking lot of his condominium in Houston, Texas, ended up
half way around the world.
Woods was "really congratulatory. He is more than pleased,"
said the investigator, who spoke on condition of anonymity because
the probe is ongoing.
Police are looking for a Filipino who was selling the motorcycle
online, Mijares said.
Yap said the man faces illegal firearms possession and smuggling
charges.

I'm actually more curious at the fact that he lives in Houston...

Could he be a MotoHouston member?

Show yourself if you are!

I am not sure if the guy is a little person or the bike is huge but there is no way he can reach those handlebars sitting on the saddle...

Anyway... yeah I could think of a lot more things to spend 80 grand on...

Like taking KawiGirl out and give her the keys to a brand new shiny Australia.
