Bikers grant Bozeman woman's last wish

BOZEMAN, Mont. -

A group of bikers granted one Bozeman woman's "last wish", Saturday.      

Sandi Young used to be an avid biker but now, she's dying of liver disease.
     
Her daughter asked a friend, Lee Williams, if he would take her for one last ride on a motorcycle.
     
Saturday, a herd of hogs surprised Young at Highgate Assisted living to take her for a ride.

She donned the leather jacket, boots and bandana she used to wear and tells us it's been four years, when her husband died, since she last rode.

Before they left, Lee Williams gave Young a spirit bell to take along on her ride.  
     
Young says getting to ride with all the folks who turned out, Saturday, means the world to her.

We asked her what she missed most about riding.

"The freedom.  I miss my husband and me riding a lot.  Just the fact that I haven't been riding.  I love my bikes.  I do," says Young.

They rode through downtown and up Bridger Canyon to Bridger Bowl and back to see the fall colors.
