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.
