Episode 207 - Interview with Gloria Tramontin Struck 

Hello Boys and Girls, 

Welcome to another interview episode. This time I had the pleasure and honor to speak with Gloria Struck. Author, Hall of Fame inductee and at 94, still riding. A tremendous inspiration to us all, whether if you ride or not.

You can get Gloria's book "Gloria" by going to her Facebook page and place your order and get an autographed copy. OR you can click on this link and download it directly from the The Motorcycle Men website.  Click here to order!! Better yet, go to Sturgis in August and meet her there.

Great interview.... Enjoy!!

The Beautiful Cover Art for Gloria's book was done by Artist David Uhl. You can learn more about David at UHL Studios. He has some great motorcycle related artwork on his site. I highly recommend you check it out.
