R.I.P. Scooter of Anarchy

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened. — Theodore Guisel (Dr. Seuss)

This is painful. I’m in Bakersfield, generally on the way towards Flagstaff to see Kylee.  I stopped in at Camping World to have the leveling jack repaired and to get an estimate on the body damage I did Monday with my driving prowess.

When they took Roamward Bound back to the service bay, apparently the driver didn’t notice the motorcycle trailer carrying Scooter of Anarchy was still hitched up. He tried to back into the service bay and, of course, the trailer jackknifed and was hit by the RV. SOA is a total loss.

The service manager was mortified and very apologetic. They are already working on the new damage to the RV and I know they’ll compensate me for the bike, but SOA was not just a bike. She was like a friend. She saw the mountain twisties, the long bridges, the ocean vistas. She saw 110 on the 101 and took me through rain, mud and fog. She was a good bike. Couldn’t bring myself to take a picture before they took her away.

RIP SOA.
