Gloria Struck

While Gloria Tramontin Struck came from a motorcycling family, she didn't originally have any burning desire to ride. Gloria was born in 1925 behind her family's business, Lexington Cycle Shop, in Clifton, New Jersey. The business had been selling bicycles and Excelsior-Henderson motorcycles since 1915. 

In 1946, at age 21, Gloria joined the Motor Maids that had been established in 1941. Gloria is the longest standing member still riding. 

Gloria has logged over 500 thousand miles, riding all 48 continental states many times over. Gloria's family shares her love of riding. Her daughter Lori is also a Motor Maid and can always be seen riding with Gloria.
