Gloria Tramontin Struck. Lifetime Motorcyclist. 75 Years On Two Wheels And Still Riding.

Gloria Tramontin was age 16 in 1941 when she started to ride solo a motorcycle. That year, women simply didn’t ride motorcycle…

Overcoming prejudice and personal obstacles all her life on the road, she is still riding cross country riding with either her daughter or granddaughter from her home in New Jersey.

She rode many times all over the US States, but also in a large part of Europe. Now 92 she continues to ride her current motorcycle to big rallies and events where she is recognized as a model biker and celebrity.

All that riding on all types of big bikes, from Knuckles to Panheads to Shovels, Evos and Twin Cams mean Gloria has hundreds of stories to tell in her book. As a complement, she offers in her autobiography an extensive personal scrapbook of over 100 pictures.

Currently in backorder, this book can be pre-ordered right now for End of the week felivery.

At Wolfgang Publishing/Car Tech. $24.95.

    Not taking anything away from a life of riding, but what the hell is a “model biker”?

    Awesome accomplishment, She my kind of Women alright! Just before I married my wife, my Barber asked, “does your girl friend like to ride?” I said, if she did not like to ride, she would Not be my girl friend! I have only been riding for 47 years, sure hope I can get another 25 or 30 years in on Two Wheels. Looking forward to the book Gloria.

    Congratulations Gloria! I can hardly wait to order my copy. By the way, a “model biker” never trailers their bike to a rally, or motorcycle event of any kind. They travel from home, and arrive on two wheels. I can guarantee you that Gloria has never trailered her bike to any motorcycle event, ever! Also, I would bet she has probably travelled more miles on a bike than any of us in this response column. She’s really lived most of her life in the saddle. The book will tell the whole story.

    Gloria is the epitome of passion! I cannot wait to order mine. So thankful the stories are being told for generations to come, may they “model” the example you have set for all of us, men and women alike. Your smile, ability to embrace all the motofamily with the same care and compassion will live on forever, you are a living legend!!

    Thank you all for your kind comments. I will be selling and autographing the book all over the country and also at Daytona during Bike week at the 200 mile beach racing Monument that is located on the beach side of the Hilton Hotel on North Atlantic on Wednesday at 11:00 AM for a few hours.
