One of the best-loved female riding pioneers, Gloria Struck, turned 90-years-old in 2015 and she’s still riding. That means there’s no better time than now to appreciate her. And if you don’t know Gloria Struck, it’s time you did.
Gloria celebrated her 90th birthday on July 7th in New Brunswick, Canada during the Motor Maids Annual Convention. Those two events have overlapped for years; she joined Motor Maids in 1946 so the celebration has become a tradition of sorts. Explained Gloria, “Me and Betty Fauls, (Motor Maids Founder) Dot Robinson’s daughter, were the first to reach 60 years as a member and still riding, then 65.
...
I was 21.� Both Gloria and Betty are on track to receive recognition at next year’s convention for reaching 70 years as members, “and, God willing, still riding,� said Gloria.
...
If you know Gloria at all, you know that changing her mind would come easy.
But she took to riding naturally and spent the next 12 years exploring, often riding on her own to distant locations, until she married in 1954. “I always acted like a lady and was treated like a lady,� she said. “I dressed appropriately and I still do.�
Did she ever run into trouble? “I was a very naïve person.
...
Speaking of Daytona, Gloria has been riding there since 1951 and has lots of pictures from the days they raced on the beach, but she didn’t hang out with racers. Not until now. “I was there twice when Klamfoth won on the beach,� she said. “I took pictures of him but I never knew him.
...
But, justified Gloria, “It’s not safe to go by speed limits, you have to keep up with the traffic.�
Lori is also a Motor Maid and has accompanied Gloria to conventions since 1996.
...
Gloria was an Avon Lady for 44 years and she is still radiant. She credits consistent good habits, soap and water, and the avoidance of chemicals. Remember, this comes from a woman who has traveled many miles on a motorcycle in harsh conditions. She plans to write a book on healthy living and how to live to be 120. Who wouldn’t read that?
Positive and down to earth, Gloria has a sense of how lucky she has been but there’s no attitude or entitlement whatsoever. On her recent birthday, the Wheels Through Time Museum posted the event on their Facebook page and it went viral. “I beat out Jay Leno!� she said, clearly delighted. She couldn’t even get through the 1700+ comments posted in response before she had to leave for Sturgis.
It’s Gloria’s warmth, her gumption and her perpetual authenticity that endear her to so many, and she feels the same about the riders she’s met. “I’m thankful for all the wonderful motorcycle people I have met throughout the years and I hope to still keep meeting more in the years ahead!� she said. “They really feel like family to me.�
Gloria, we feel the same about you.

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.
