101-Year-Old Veteran Fulfills Dream of One Last Ride on a Harley


In December, Ray Weser will turn 102 years old. With old age comes the reality that some things just aren’t possible anymore. Weser, a lifelong Harley-Davidson lover, couldn’t bare the thought of never sitting on a bike again.

Thanks to the help of his local VFW and a local Harley-Davidson dealership, Weser got to enjoy one last ride. He jumped on a brand new Tri Glide (driven by a volunteer) and rode through the streets of his Arizona neighborhood.

But Weser didn’t ride alone. Fifty other friends and fellow bikers joined him on a ride that he’ll never forget. It was a full-circle moment for the man who had worked on the bikes since he was a young teenager. He was an employee of Harley-Davidson for 24 years and always held a deep passion for the bikes.


“He’s a life-long Harley person that really just lives in that moment and so this is an amazing thing,” Weser’s granddaughter, Jennifer Miller, told CBS5. “This is an amazing thing. I’m pretty sure he thinks he’s died and gone to heaven already.”

We can only hope that Weser truly had the time of his life during that very special bike ride.
