Bobby Petrino’s motorcycle? It’s for sale, of course

Petrino Motorcycle I

And why wouldn’t it be, really.

Bobby Petrino was fired last month in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident that brought to the very public light some “shenanigans” involving a newly-hired female UA football staffer and the now-former Arkansas head coach.

For those with a morbid curiosity in these types of things, or simply looking for a good deal on a slightly-used Hog — the bike, not the… never mind — the two-wheeled vehicle on which Petrino and Jessica Dorrell crashed into college football infamy is now yours for the taking.

Petrino’s red 2007 Harley-Davidson is listed on a website called Copart.com, which describes itself as “sell[ing] more than one million vehicles each year through VB2, our patented two-stage internet sales technology.”

The current bid in what’s essentially an online auction is $2,550.  The expected sale date is listed as May 30 of this year, so there’s still plenty of time for Razorback Nation to pool its collective resources and keep such a trophy out of the hands of rival SEC West fans, who you know damn well would drive the thing through downtown Fayetteville during the week leading up to a game — with an inflatable woman deftly positioned somewhere on or around the driver’s person.

The bike, aptly dubbed “Hawg Wild”, is being sold “as is — where is” and has a book value of $16,000, although the cost of repairs is estimated to be $18,481.

Some of the damage is shown in photos available on the website, including the nickname on the fuel tank that pretty much sums up the whole Petrino affair:

    Thought the whole Petrino affair couldn’t get more embarrassing … until I saw that paint job. He sure went “hawg wild” on his mid-life crisis, didn’t he?

    I never saw a post-accident photo of Ms. Dorrell. I wonder if she looked as bad as Petrino. Surely she had some scrape & bruise?

    After all this I hope she at least finished him off.
