Hazel Robinson had two big wishes on her bucket list: to go for a motorcycle ride and a snowmobile ride at the age of 90.

Robinson discussed her desires with Nicole Treichel, a cosmetology student at Professional Salon Academy, and Nicole decided to help.

While snow was not yet available, Treichel knew she could fulfill one of Robinson's wishes. She organized a motorcycle ride with the help of her friend, Patrick Tryon.

On Oct. 21, three days after Robinson's 90th birthday, Tryon rolled up on his Harley-Davidson to grant her birthday wish.

The very surprised Robinson beamed as she took off on her very first ride, dressed in a borrowed leather jacket and a snowmobile helmet, to the delight of a small crowd cheering her on.

They returned to Professional Salon Academy, where Robinson caught her breath and could not wait to go tell her friends at a café about her new experience.
