My good friend Gary George, Owner of Obsession Motorcycle Service, Portland, Oregon
was murdered on April 24, 2006. 2006 is not one of my favorite years....

Yours truly, Summer of 2008

I had this new, never run, partially assembled 96 CI S&S Evolution motor
collecting dust in my garage along with this 1985 titled Harley Davidson softail
rolling chassis. The project more or less died after what's her name left in 1997..

I swapped the motor for a 1993 1200 Sportster from a guy in Eastern Oregon.

I sold the rolling chassis to a builder for $5,000 and the Sportster to a guy
in Southern Oregon for $5,000. Then I took the $10,000 cash and bought Suzy.

Which I figure made Suzy a free bike since I got her for stuff that was just
laying around being no use to me at all.

Above right is a shot of my 1986 Honda Shadow at Hells Canyon, over the
July 4th, 1986 long weekend. My first real ride after moving to Oregon.

In case you're wondering, this is "What's her name..."
