PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. – A 101-year-old veteran is smiling today after taking a special ride on a Harley-Davidson.
Ray Weser will turn 102 in October. A group of bikers rallied around the centenarian to give him what they called “One Last Ride.”
Weser told KTVK that he fell in love with Harley-Davidsons when he was a teenager. He spent 24 years working for the company.
“Harley dripping oil, smoke coming out of everywhere and I fell in love with motorcycles right there!” said Weser.
Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars partnered with Harley dealership Grand Canyon Harley-Davidson to give him his wish to ride one last time.
His granddaughter said he couldn’t have been any happier.
“This is an amazing thing,” said granddaughter Jennifer Miller. “I’m pretty sure he thinks he’s died and gone to heaven.”
