In Which the Pirate Is Sad.
Pirate-Husband’s motorcycle, the namesake for the Highwayman Armwarmers, is no more. Here’s a pic of Pirate-Husband getting my dad set up for a ride last May.
For anyone who doesn’t remember, Pirate-Husband crashed back in late October, breaking two ribs and quite a bit of motorcycle. He was three hours from home at the time. The bike was brought to a shop near the crash, the insurance adjuster came out to look at it, the shop fixed the bike, and he got it back mid-January (uninspected, though the inspection had run out while the shop had it). It sat for a while in our parking lot while Pirate-Husband’s ribs healed.
About a month ago, he took it out for a ride and noticed that there was an incredible amount of oil leaking out, so it went to our local shop.
There is $4800 worth of frame damage.
The bike is being totalled.
I may knit another pair of Highwayman Armwarmers in requiem.
Aw, that sucks. :( Pass on my condolences.
I have a roommate who rides and his bike just recently got totaled as well. I feel your pain!
Now THAT’S a bummer! I’m very sad about the bike!
