Sammi from Kansas City, Missouri is our July 2012 cover model. Those of you, who have been attending the popular and ever growing Thursday Bike Nights at Worth Harley-Davidson, may recognize Sammi as one of the beautiful Worth Girls. You can always find her and the rest of the Worth Girls slinging beer and washing bikes next to the new Worth Harley-Davidson Event Center. We’re very excited to shoot Sammi on Mike McNamara’s 2012 Harley-Davidson CVO Road Glide Custom for this month’s cover!
Sammi has been a sales and marketing director, a professional model and spokes model, and is now one of the Worth Harley-Davidson Worth Girls. When asked about her ambitions, she told us “To be a person rare to find in today's world; real, genuinely loving and caring for others, bringing joy to people every day, and being a positive example to others.” As far as hobbies go, Sammi told us “I have a great passion for living, so experiencing every opportunity and adventure that comes my way. I do regularly enjoy dancing, swimming, tennis, UFC, nachos at Buffalo Wild Wings, working out, sports, and being outdoors doing anything.” Sammi also admitted that she’s a sucker for UFC and MIZZOU football.
When asked about the smartest thing she’s ever done, Sammi said “Moving to Dallas, Texas for school. I love Texas!” On the flip-side, when asked about the most stupid thing she’s ever done, she told us “Every day is something even more silly or ridiculous that I catch myself saying or doing. I laugh at myself constantly, and anything bad enough, I learn a lesson from and move on.”
When asked to describe her personality, Sammi said “I would describe my personality as genuine, honest, friendly, joyful, and confident.” We asked Sammi what people say is her best attribute, to which she replied “I'm told that my best attribute is my; well, it depends on what you’re referring to? If you're talking physically, people always have commented on my deep blue-green (aqua) eyes and big lips. If you’re talking about personality, people comment that I am a blond with a brain, and genuine.”
Just for fun, we asked Sammi to share some of her favorite things with our readers:
Favorite color: I own a lot of blue and turquoise, but I love all colors, so I’m not picky.
Favorite food: Sweet potato fries & pizza.
Favorite drinks (non-alcoholic): Water...or better yet, coconut water… mango flavored.
Favorite drink (alcoholic): Jack & Coke.
Favorite restaurant: I’m currently craving California Pizza Kitchen.
Favorite actors: Matthew McConaughey, Mark Wahlberg, and Cary Grant.
Favorite actresses: Kate Beckinsale, Katherine Heigl, Audrey Hephburn.
Favorite TV shows: Don't get much time to watch TV, but if would probably be Sons of Anarchy, Justified, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Favorite bands/artists: I love music, from Alice in Chains to Nickelback, and from Micheal Bubl'e to Third Day.
Favorite song: Bad Bad Girlfriend by Theory of a Deadman.
Do you have pets? No, but I love dogs and would like to have a horse again someday.
Do you ride? Yes, I do.
Do you own your own bike? Not yet. I love being the passenger at the moment, but want to buy my own soon.
What is your dream bike? A Harley-Davidson Softail Blackline. Being a free-spirit in nature, I love the look of the Blackline’s aggressive freedom.
What is your most memorable riding experience? The annual Thunder Run for JDRF, which is sponsored by Worth Harley-Davidson. I have two siblings with Juvenile Diabetes (JD), and being able to ride alongside the vast number of bikers supporting JDRF is so special and dear to my heart.
What is your least memorable riding experience? I don’t really have one yet.
To what motorcycle clubs or organizations do you belong? I’m a Worth Girl at Worth Harley-Davidson.
Which motorcycle rallies & events have you attended? I have been part of the Guns & Hoses ride for fallen and injured officers and their families, and the Thunder Run for JDRF.
Which is your favorite bike night location? Worth Harley-Davidson every Thursday night. Being the #2 Harley-Davidson dealership in the country, the people here are friendly and deeply involved in the community. They give you the tools to succeed, and the understanding of what bike will best fit your desires.
Do you have any tattoos? Does my little stick-on squirrel from Over the Hedge tattoo count? LOL. No, I have none.
Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself? I enjoy both, but I’m a girl who has a need for speed the majority of the time.
Who are some of your closest riding buddies? All my Worth Harley-Davidson friends!
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers? I love the fact that Harley-Davidson has been around since WW1. The fact that H-D was present since that time, and being involved with our military and supporting our troops is important. I’ve been told that I resemble Marissa Miller; and whether I do or not, I’ll take that as a compliment. And in respect, I’d love to be involved at a greater scale with Harley-Davidson, like MM. I also love inviting people out to Worth Harley-Davidson for Thursday Bike Nights. We have so much fun at WHD! You’ll love all the concerts and events we have going on in our new event center, so please come out and see me. I love meeting new people and enjoying good times. I look forward to seeing you out there soon, and have a fantastic day all of you Cycle Connections fans! ~ Sammi
