While Gloria Tramontin Struck came from a motorcycling family, she didn't originally have any burning desire to ride.
In fact, in 1941, when she was 16, her older brother decided to teach her to ride while she told him tearfully, "I don't want to know how to ride. Well, he won out, and since then she has owned 14 bikes-three Indians and 11 Harleys. She now rides a 2004 Heritage Softail Classic. Gloria was born in 1925 behind her family's business, the Lexington Cycle Shop, in Clifton, NJ. The business had been selling bicycles and Excelsior-Henderson motorcycles since 1915. When she was only three years old, her father, Ernest, died at the age of 32, leaving her 28-year-old mother, Pierina, to take over the shop. In 1946, at age 21, Gloria joined the Motor Maids. She and the founders' daughter, Betty Fauls, are the club's longest standing members still riding. Two years ago, the two were the first in the Motor Maids' history to be honored for 65 years of active riding. Gloria has logged over 500 thousand miles, riding all 48 continental states many times over. She has made the trip to Daytona Bike Week numerous times since 1951, and she attends many Rallies, Motor Maid events and conventions from New Jersey to California.

Gloria Tramontin Struck, a member of Motor Maids for 55 years, was inducted into the Sturgis Hall of Fame in August 2011.
At 86 years young, Gloria, and her usual side kick on her own motorcycle, Gloria's daughter Lori, averaged 600 miles a day on their way to Sturgis, South Dakota from New Jersey for the ceremony. Gloria had logged more than a half million miles at that time. Gloria's parents owned a famous motorcycle dealership, in existence for 95 years, Tramontin Harley-Davidson, in northwestern New Jersey. I had the pleasure of having lunch with Gloria and her daughter Lori at a Dawn Patrol Motorcycle Club's (established in 1937) Memorial Day cook out in New Jersey a few years ago. Despite the attention Gloria draws she is a gregarious humble woman, a delight.
