Rather than rehash the history of Father’s Day, which is what I did last year in this BLOG, I thought I’d get down to the nitty-gritty of it all - Gifts for Dad. We all love our Dad’s and we want to show that through a thoughtful gift on Father’s Day. I talked with the experts at Wisconsin Harley-Davidson® and asked for a sneak peek at what they were planning in order to help the dilemma of gift purchasing for Father’s Day. They gave it to me both barrels. So, here it is, with no fuss, muss, or ramblings on about the true meaning of Father’s Day. We already know what it means to most of us. We love our Dads.
Below are some of their ideas. Just click on what you want for Dad to review - your browser will open a new page.

Since we are going to talk about motorcycle helmets, let’s get the grim stats out of the way right off the bat. A recent study out of the University of NSW in Australia showed that helmets reduced fatal head injuries by about 65 percent. Our own CDC quotes similar statistics. With that said, I'll not get too preachy about the safety [...]

Well, it’s that time of year again. Many of us, like Richard Dreyfuss in “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” feel that strong pull towards something greater than ourselves. We identify with his obsession to reach Devils Tower, the gathering place for the select few, because we, too, feel compelled to hit the road. Only [...]
