Margaret Wilson

This last summer, Margaret passed away.  She lived an incredible life in the ratings of us motorcycle enthusiasts.  She was in her 90s, but rode motorcycles for like 70 years.  That's a long time.  I can only hope to ride bikes for that long.  The Motor Maids (which she was a member) sure got their money's worth with Margaret.  She was like Leo Payne's step-mother too.  I'm sure she gave him motherly advice along the way.
Whenever I saw her, I'd say "Hey Margaret !" and she'd tell me some stories, and it was a real treat to talk with her.  Margaret (and her husband Mike) are one of Iowa's greatest motorcycling hall-of-famers - and real nice people too . . . (see previous post June 2012 on the Wilsons)
