Gloria Tramontin Struck rode a motorcycle for the very first time at age 16 in 1941. Women simply didn't ride motorcycles in 1941, but at the urging of her older brother, a very reluctant Gloria gave it a try, and it changed her life forever. She has been riding ever since, and at age 89, still rides regularly and continues to participate in cross country rides.As you might expect, any woman regularly riding a motorcycle in an era when women didn't ride motorcycles has a lot of stories to tell. In Gloria Struck: 75 years on Two Wheels and Still Riding, Gloria shares with you all of her favorite stories, from back when she was being raised behind her father's motorcycle shop in Clifton NJ, through 75 years of riding tales, all the way to the present, where she is rightfully celebrated at motorcycles rallies and events. Complementing her life and riding stories is an extensive scrapbook of photos, over 100 of which are included in this autobiography. Also included are anecdotes provided by fans, friends and admirers. Of course, Gloria's book and her stories, are as much about overcoming prejudice and personal obstacles, as it is about riding motorcycles. Because of that, this book resonates with riders and non-riders alike. The message is about more than riding, it's about meeting and conquering life's challenges with courage and humor.
