A 103-year-old woman named "Bert" Mullenbach lives in a nursing home in Rochester, Minnesota, about 80 miles southeast of Minneapolis. For years, she's wanted to ride a motorcycle, but once she passed 100, she figured she'd never do it.


That was until this month, when she was talking with her dentists, who is a motorcycle guy. He offered her a ride on his Harley. It's a two-seater with a back seat you can lean back on, so she didn't have to hang onto him. He put her in a helmet and leather jacket and they rode about 15 miles before heading home. Best of all, he picked her up and dropped her off in front of her nursing home, so all her friends could watch from the windows. Did she enjoy the ride? "I completely forgot how old I am," she said.
