Motorcycle sidecar brings 100-year-old woman to her birthday party

A century ago she was born to be wild.

Evelyn Warburton rode to her 100th birthday party Saturday in a motorcycle sidecar. She sported a black leather jacket, a helmet and a pair of sunglasses for the 10-minute ride from her home in Lightstreet to her granddaughter's house in Berwick.

"It was fun today," said Warburton.

Her chauffeur on the green 2000 Harley-Davidson Ultra was George Crawford, a friend who had been offering to take her to church on his motorcycle for several years.

Warburton finally accepted Crawford's offer of a ride to her party. She had actually turned 100 on Thursday.

Crawford said Warburton was nervous at first, but relaxed after he assured her she wouldn't fly out of the sidecar. The duo hit a top speed of 40 mph (64 kph).

"She's always willing to try new things," said Warburton's daughter, Nancy Hartzel.
