You know those promises you make that you know you will never have to do? Promises like "When Hell Freezes Over", or "When I Win The Lotto", or in this case "When I Make It To My 100th Birthday".
Well, this old, but young lady made the promise, that if she ever made it to her 100th birthday, she would ride on a motorcycle. She had never been on one, but true to her word, when she turned 100, she went for a ride with her great grandson.

|Monday, August 26th, 2013 - Taiwanese 80 Year Olds Go For A Californian Motorcycle Ride|
#Taiwan #SeniorCitizens - The bunch of senior citizens from Taiwan, average age of 81, who we reported on last year doing a round-the-island motorcycle tour, have gone on an international ride-out. Their Taiwan ride attracted worldwide attention and became an excellent TV commercial for a local bank.
Ten of the original 17 went for a ride in California. The group, aged between 70 and 90, rode with their American counterparts, the American Grand Riders. On their ride they visited old folk's homes, hoping to entice other senior citizens to become more active. Their life motto should inspire them:
I did not stop riding because I got old, I got old because I stopped riding...........

Remember the video we posted about the 17 Taiwanese senior citizens (age 80+) who did a trip around the island on their motorcycles? A very inspiring video, and I can only hope to be able to do this when, and if, I reach that age.
I wasn't the only one inspired. Peter Starr, motorcycle documentaries producer and editor at Motorcyclist Magazine, wanted to get involved and he roped in Dean Torrence, the other half of the famous rock & roll duo Jan & Dean (hits like Surf City, Deadman's Curve, The Little Old Lady from Pasadena, etc), and both, with 19 other foreign bikers are going for a similar ride around the island...........
|Friday, June 13th, 2008 - 80 Year Old Arrested For Stealing Motorcycle|
An 80-year-old man (not the one in the photo) wanted to get even with a motorcycle rider who had cut him off, so he decided to take the motorcycle when he saw it a week later.
It's not easy stealing a motorcycle, especially when you're 80, and he got caught. Now, he had to pay a $1,000 bail to get out of jail.
