Jane Ann Kern died on August 31, 2008, in a terrible automobile crash in Maryland as she and two of her friends were en route to a 9-day vacation on the Outer Banks. She was a front seat passenger in the car.

Jane was born in Bloomington, Illinois in 1937. Jane and Walter married in 1961 and began many adventures including taking up motorcycling at the age of 51. They joined the Polar Bears in 1991. She absolutely loved the Polar Bear riders and her white 1998 Honda Gold Wing SE w/Motor Trike conversion.

Jane was an active member of many groups, too numerous to mention.

Here are all the pictures of Jane and her trike on the Polar Bear Grand Tour website from her last year of riding Polar Bear:

At the Land Slide Saloon, Jane is thinking,
"You certainly know how to take a flattering picture."

My trike was in the shop so Jane and I rode
two-up today on Jane's trike to Bahr's Landing.
