A motorcycle-loving grandma is set to blow her life’s savings on a 10-year round the world trip on her new £18,000 Harley-Davidson.
Sue O’Grady, from Sprotbrough, near Doncaster, is to sell her £200,000 house and plans to blow every last penny she owns on the road trip of a lifetime.
Speaking about her family’s reaction to her mammoth trip, Sue told The Yorkshire Post: “They think I’m absolutely crazy – but you only live once, and I’m going to make the best of it while I’ve got the chance.”
The sixty-two-year-old says she now loves her motorcycle more than her house, which is why she’s prepared to sacrifice one for the other: “I love my home, I’ve lived there a long time and it’s everything I ever wanted, but I probably love my Harley a lot more on balance, so the house has got to go.
“I can travel a long way and see a lot of the world with the proceeds from the sale, and if I can stretch the money out and make it last for eight or 10 years then so much the better.”
Good for her. What a woman!
