Watching the Why We Ride documentary again tonight in the background while workin’ away at the computer… one of my favorite quotes from the whole movie, "I say in five to ten years there’ll be more women riding than men. ‘Cause they’re tougher you know."

Gloria Tramonin Struck, 87 years young and still riding, was one of the original members of Motor Maids. The “club” was one of the first organizations that highlighted women riders and gave them a a place to meet, communicate, and ride.

I found this photo with the caption- “Nearly 100 and still wants to ride.” I have no idea where I found it or who it is, despite attempts at research. Either way- awesome lady. 
If anyone has info, please let me know.
