25 years ago, I got married.
25 years ago, I bought my husband a brand new Harley Davidson FLHTC as a wedding gift.
24 years ago, while on his way home to be there for my cancer surgery, he totalled the bike.
24 years ago, with the insurance money, I bought him a used Harley Davidson FLHTC.
5 years ago, I used his bike as collateral on a personal loan. It is worth almost twice as much now as when I bought it.
Last month, we got the bike out of the shop and my husband is bound for Sturgis this week.
