Woman marks 100th with Harley ride

A New Hampshire woman celebrated her 100th birthday with a ride on a Harley Davidson motorcycle -- an activity she has enjoyed since 1927.

Alice King, 100, of Lebanon, said her family and Granite State Harley Davidson surprised her on her birthday with a motorcycle ride alongside dozens of other bikers, WPTZ-TV, Plattsburgh, N.Y., reported Tuesday.

King, described as an inspiration by the younger motorcyclists who accompanied her on her birthday outing, said she has been around motorcycles since she was young.

I had two brothers that had them and a friend and it seems as though I was always riding them around, King said at her centennial celebration.
