103 yr old woman finally gets her motorcycle ride
« on: August 02, 2017, 01:51:18 PM »

http://www.kttc.com/story/35996249/2017/07/28/103-year-old-rochester-woman-gets-motorcycle-dream-granted

I was able to help a 103 year old woman (be 104 in October), fulfill a dream of hers that she didn't think was possible. In January she was in for a cleaning and we got to talking and I asked her if she would like to go for a motorcycle ride.  She said, sure I would.  Well, she came in for a cleaning in July and asked when we were going for that ride.  I called her son and got it arranged and off we went.  It was a beautiful morning and we went about 15 miles.  She said "everything is so bright and green on a motorcycle".  I told her we could do it again next summer and she said she would put it on her calendar.  What an inspiration.  You just gotta give her a hug!

That is very cool! Now I can tell my 91 year-old friend Marilyn Tuttle that she has years of riding left. You might want to search that name on Google or YouTube. She was very famous in the 40s and 50s.

Very cool. Though you may want to tell Marilyn to keep her feet up before she gets hurt.
