Man takes part in Santa Ride after almost 60 years of not riding a bike

86 year-old Howard Barnett has never ridden a motorcycle for almost 60 years but nothing stopped him from taking part in the Teesside most popular Santa Ride. Wearing a Santa suit, Barnett rode his Honda and completely relived his old days. He bought a Honda last December for just £50 and that was all it took to reignite that passion of his.
“The Honda was completely seized up when we bought it. It was in quite a state, but now it’s beautiful. We started the engine up about three months ago and it felt wonderful just to hear it going in the garage. Hearing the engine roar was one thing, but getting the bike out on the road was another,” said Barnett.
How many of you out there as as passionate as Howard Barnett right here?
