Actress Ann-Margret, now 82, remains very active in show business and living life to the fullest.

Ann-Margret said, “It’s lavender, and it’s got white daisies all over it.”

“There [are] flowers on the back fender and the front fender. … I love speed. Not the drug,” continued the actress.

She was recently honored at an awards show, where she spoke of her passion for riding her lavender Harley-Davidson motorcycle decorated with white daisies.

Ann-Margret began performing as a young girl in nightclubs to prove to her parents she was meant for entertainment.

“I remember wanting to be in show business all my life,” she recalled.

Ann-Margret added, “And I remember one day I said to mother and daddy, ‘I want to talk to you. It’s a very, very important thing for me and I want to get into show business.’”

Ann-Margret previously said, “It was my daddy who inspired me to ride.”

“Before he met my mother, he had a couple of motorcycles. One was an Indian and the other a BSA. And my uncle, my mother’s brother, had a big motorcycle. When I was 10 years old, I would ride on the back of his bike with him. … He would take me to the Norwegian border, and we would go into Norway. There’s no way I could forget that motorcycle,” explained the actress.

Ann-Margret added, “The speed, being in the elements, the wind and the rain, the sleet and hail – oh gosh, I get very excited when I even talk about it. … Today, I’ve got this incredible Harley-Davidson motorcycle. It’s very funny when you see it parked next to all the other bikes. It’s lavender with daisies. It’s quite unique.”

She rose to fame in the 1960s, becoming a sex symbol known for her roles opposite Elvis Presley in “Viva Las Vegas” and Pat Boone in “State Fair.”

While she’s always kept private about her relationship with Presley, she fondly remembers their musical chemistry.

Now in her eighth decade, Ann-Margret attributes her youthfulness and energy to the lessons of positivity from her parents.

“I’ve got a lot of energy. It doesn’t come in a bottle,” bragged Ann-Margret.

She concluded, “I am just blessed that my mother and father gave me such great energy. And there’s no negativity here. … They instilled in me all of these wonderful things that I still carry with me. You don’t whine about things. You just go out and do the things that you love. And I just feel blessed with the life that I’ve been given.”

She has no plans to slow down and continues pursuing the adventures and passions that bring her joy.
