As our birthdays roll around, we’re asked what we’d like to receive as gifts from those we love who want to treat us on our special day. Some people prefer to ask for practical gifts that will get daily use, some want more frivolous items they otherwise wouldn’t buy for themselves, and some would rather be gifted an experience over an item.

No matter which way someone leans, their requests can sometimes be surprising—like the case of one woman in the U.K. who had big birthday dreams.

Year After Year

Though we all get older, wiser, and worldlier as we grow from childhood to adulthood, there is something special about birthdays that has cemented them in our celebrations and traditions throughout the years.

The importance of birthday wishes as we transition away from youth cannot be understated – they keep us full of whimsy and desire for all the good the world has left to offer us. Birthday wishes are our hedge against cynicism, mistrust, and growing bored of life, and as such, should be honored whenever possible.

A Long Time Wishing

Great-grandmother and motorcycle fanatic Barbara Morris had a rather unique wish for her 90th birthday: she wanted to ride on the back of a Harley-Davidson.

This birthday desire has actually been a longstanding promise of hers. She told her family for a number of years that if she made it to 90, she’d want to hop back on a bike again and go for a ride.

Morris had originally gotten her own motorcycle as a teenager in the ’50s, but had to give up the hobby as the years went on.

Immediate Excitement

This wish was not one her family was going to let go unfulfilled. On her special day, her sons arrived at her nursing home with 13 members of the local Widows Sons biker chapter in tow, offering to take her for a spin.

She was elated, not hesitating for even a second before hopping aboard the back of one of the Harleys. The crew then gave her a ride around town before driving her to a pub to continue the celebrations.

Return To Youth

Morris said she “felt 21 again” as she clung onto the rider and felt the wind rush past her, reliving the same thrill she indulged in during her youth.

“I just felt the years melt away,” she described. “It was just an incredible experience to feel the wind blowing in my face again.”

Her family wasn’t at all surprised by her immediate excitement, with granddaughter Kristy Harvey saying Morris had always had a “daredevil spirit.”

A Generational Hobby

“My uncle said to her, ‘You always said if you made it to 90, you wanted to go on a Harley,’ and then she said, ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t believe you remember that,’” Harvey said.

“She’s got nerves of steel, she’s not really afraid of anything. She’s kind of from that generation that was made of tough stuff. Nothing really fazes them.”

Morris’ own first bike was a Royal Enfield 350. She was such a big fan of her bike and motorcycles in general that she passed down that passion to her kids.

For The First Time

“She always had a little bike that she nipped about on. Her three sons later all had motorbikes and a keen interest in motorbike racing and groups.”

Her desire to ride on a Harley-Davidson specifically was born from the fact that she had never gotten to during her biking heyday, and had been longing for the experience ever since.

Her family had the assistance of Morris’ nursing home as well, telling them of the plan ahead of time so they could help the birthday girl get ready before stepping outside. “They permed her hair and did her make-up, and got her dressed up nicely,” Harvey explained.

She Couldn’t Believe It

“She can’t see very well, so they had to take her right up to the bike, and when she realized what it was, her face was ‘just a picture.’”

Even after seeing the bike, she hadn’t fully clued into what was going on. As Harvey described, “She thought it was just a nice bike to look at, and when we actually told her she was going on, she was a bit speechless. She couldn’t believe it.”

She not only got to go for the ride of a lifetime, but she got a good amount of pictures with the crew that volunteered to take her out, dressed up in her own biker’s vest and everything. In every photo she looks beyond excited to be living out her long-standing wish.

Don’t Stop Wishing

Morris’ extraordinary experience shows us that age is no barrier to pursuing our most daring dreams. It reflects, refreshingly, that even if we get older, we don’t necessarily have to leave our youthful hopes, wishes, and ambitions behind.
