So, Christmas is just around the corner.

My girlfriend's 18 year old son just got into motorcycles. He's been riding my spare cruiser around to work and such.

He's got the basics. Helmet. Gloves. Jacket. Footwear.

Any creative gift ideas for someone that's new to motorcycle scene?

Maybe pay for him to enroll in a MSF course (if it's not free where he lives) OR get him one of the good books on safe motorcycling that are available.

Could always get him his own Vulcan and get your back? LOL, Would be mighty generous of you no doubt. Does he have a set of leather chaps?

I'd pay for hotels and gas to cover 5 days of riding covering 1500 miles through multiple States on the same trip. You learn a lot about motorcycles on the road.

The coolest thing we saw at the Long Beach Motorcycle Show....

Riding Social - They have graded ride routes. You can plan your routes on your computer, upload them to your phone to use as GPS, share the ride route with your friends, record your ride and share it with friends or embed it into websites, blogs or forums.

It's from the same people that do Butler Maps.

That's a great gift ..... one that he would benefit from for years to come ... after riding for 30 plus years, I went and did one of these (similar) courses ... I learnt a lot of new tricks and got rid of a lot of bad ones. You are never to young or to old to learn.

Good gift idea!!!
Actually, just went back and re-read it. And, that would be an awful idea . . . the kid is only 18. He won't be able to participate in most of the debauchery at The Buffalo Chip. And, he'll feel like everybody around him is "so old"! LOL!

Another reason the adv MSF course is a good idea.....it should lower his insurance rates. And try to keep him disinterested in sport bikes....too tempting to "see what she can do!"....and that can lead to trouble (tickets, wrecks, et al).
