Great-gran, 90, fulfils dream of riding a Harley Davidson motorbike

  • last year
A bike-mad great-grandma with “nerves of steel” was granted her birthday wish to ride on the back of a Harley Davidson – as she turned 90.

Fearless Barbara Morris said she “felt 21 again” after hitching a ride on the powerful American cruiser for almost seven miles.

The former florist with six great-grandkids got her motorcycle license in the 1950s as a teen.

And she mentioned to her family several years ago that if she made it to 90, she’d like to get back in the saddle one last time.

But she was left stunned when her sons arrived at her nursing home with members of their local biker group, before taking her for a trip with 13 other riders to a pub.

Barbara said: “I felt 21 again, and I just felt the years melt away. It was just an incredible experience.

"It was just nice to feel the wind blowing in my face again.”
