If you have some extra cash laying around, you can own the infamous motorcycle former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino was riding when he crashed last month. The motorcycle, a 2007 Harley-Davidson, is up for auction on copart.com. The listed price for the vehicle is $16,000 with repair costs of $18,481.
The current bidding as of 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday was at $4,050. (I just checked on the bike and it shows a current bid of $15. ???)
After reading the story about Petrino, it made me want to know more about Copart. I would have expected to see this bike listed on eBay.

More About Petrino
Petrino was hospitalized with broken ribs after the crash. It was later discovered a female assistant, Jessica Dorrell, was riding with Petrino. The coach later admitted to having an inappropriate relationship with Dorrell, which included a gift of $20,000 and misleading school officials.
Former Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino was fired after he lied to school administrators about a motorcycle accident and an inappropriate relationship with 25-year-old football staff member Jessica Dorrell. The school hired John L. Smith to replace him.
Petrino, who coached at the University of Louisville and the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons before becoming head coach at Arkansas, guided the Razorbacks to an 11-2 record last season, which included a 29-16 victory over Kansas State in the Cotton Bowl.
The auction is expected to close on May 30 so there’s plenty of time to get your funding together. Let’s hope whomever wins the auction has better luck with the motorcycle than Petrino.
