So her husband, Jim, got her a shiny black Harley Davidson Sportster. Just weeks later on July 11, her first big ride with her husband and five friends, she was killed in an accident two hours away in North Carolina.

The ride was originally planned as a 100-mile circle, but was cut short because of rain.
