Flash back to 1988 Sturgis overflow at, Cowboy Bar Jackson, Wyoming. I was mesmerized by the colors & chrome parked in front of the bar. My wife knew that I was entranced as I had given up two wheeled connivance in favor of raising two boys. 10 years was the longest time I had been w/out a bike since I was 14 & she knew that I wanted,--no--, needed another bike. She said,"When we get home lets go see how much a new Harley will cost". I love this woman. 1990 rolls around & we've saved enough for the down payment so off to Mid Continent H-D we go, I have the Turquoise Heritage in my sights but fate steeps up and Fred(service manager) says "you should see this trade-in we just got " That was my introduction to "Sammy" a 1990 FLHSTC, It was love at first sight---for my wife--- and she says "we'll take this one." I was dumbfounded, but ---well you see my wife is part witch---yes, I said WITCH---& over the years I had learned not to question her premonitions & so begins my 27 year love affair w/ Sammy. 2005 and 172000 miles roils around & a retirement move to Arizona happens & Sammy goes into storage, not to be moved until 12 years later, last Saturday to be exact. Now during this 12 years I had discovered dual sport & adventure bikes so a series of KTM 990 & BMW 800 & R 1200 GS have come & gone but Sammy has remained-- due in part to "the witch" who says "you may have paid for her, but I picked her out so in reality Sammy is my bike, did I mention I love this woman ? So restoration has begun & 12 years of dust, neglect & scattered parts is underway--soon--- very soon, Sammy will be restored to her former beauty & at 27 years old she has acquired antique statues she will proudly ware a tag the simply says "SAMMY"
