Bucket List Item completed for 85th Birthday

Frances Becwar never imagined that a conversation at coffee one morning would help to fulfill an item on her bucket list.
During morning coffee in downtown Exeter months ago a group at the table shared their hopes and dreams.  Of course, many wanted to travel and see the world but one wish in particular was noticed.  Frances Becwar noted that "on my bucket list I want to ride a motorcycle, go to New York City but no bungee jumping."
Margaret Petro, a lifetime resident of Exeter, took note of Becwar's list item and started thinking.  She involved her brother John Mueller who owns a touring motorcycle that accommodates a passenger comfortably.
Petro talked to Mueller about helping fulfill Becwar's dream and when they found out her 85th birthday was approaching, they decided to incorporate the two events.  Mueller stopped by Becwar's house and offered her a ride.  She "enjoyed the ride and would definitely go again.  We went about four miles out of town and then turned around and came back."
Becwar also celebrated her birthday visiting her son and daughter-in-law in Nevada.  It was her "first and only motorcycle ride.  I have no plans to buy a motorcycle."
