This was posted in our club newsletter...if anyone can help Tracy give her 100yr old Grandmother a ride it would be a nice gesture...I would do it, but Québec is a little far from Florida...especially in February!
''On February 11th, I will be in Vero Beach, Florida as we celebrate her 100th Birthday! We are looking for a side car enthusiast who would be interested in escorting her to her birthday dinner.
If there is anyone in the area who is willing to help us, can you please PM me?''

I got to say bringing grand mom for a ride yesterday was really fun for me. The smile on her face was priceless!!! I kept a close eye on her to make sure she was comfortable and OK but found myself smiling from the radiance of her smile (please don't tell the guys but I did shear a few tears of joy too). She's an amazing lady. While you all left Earls to get ready for the photo op, Buzzy and I had a chat with her. Grand mom was engaging with her stories about NJ and we started to loose track of time. I'm sure we could have sat with her for hours. She a lucky lady in many ways including a warm, fun and loving family. I'd say she left and impression on all of you. Her little dance next to the bike out side Hiram's was priceless!!!
Please remember to send us some pictures and the YouTube link when posted.
Thanks again for letting me share an amazing experience with you all.

We just arrived back home yesterday and I’m catching up on email, etc. I can’t thank you enough for what you did for the Dragon Lady! She truly had the time of her life and talked about it all weekend! As you can probably guess, her grandchildren would do anything for her! Paul, Brian, Matt and I had a great time celebrating with her this weekend.
She is truly one of a kind and not some old lady sitting in a wheel chair waiting for her time to come. She has always lived life to the fullest and this weekend was no exception.
After dinner at Hirams, the entire restaurant applauded my grandmom as we were leaving. She thought it was a riot! The video came out really well! Matt is going to work on editing it this week and I’ll send it to you as soon as it’s finished. I’ll also upload pictures later today and send them as well.
Again, if you are ever up north, please give us a head’s up. Maybe we can catch up with you again next time we are in town.
