Don’t disappoint dad

Oxford (23 May 2011) - Father's Day should be an occasion for dads to feel special – but rubbish gifts like the same old socks or boring handkerchiefs can blight the occasion. Well, this year can be different. There is something to delight every Harley-loving dad in Harley-Davidson’s latest range of gifts, whether you’re looking for a small token or a great big treat. And for any worried dads dreading a selection of bath salts and boxer shorts on June 19 – why not take them back to the shop and treat yourself?

With the riding season now well underway, staying safe in the sun is essential. The Classic Cruiser Performance Eyewear will protect his eyes and make sure he looks super stylish, while the lightweight Skull Full-Finger Airflow Gloves are ideal for warm weather. Pigskin palms and breathable material mean the gloves keep hands protected and cool, while the sleek look and skull graphic design add an edgy look.

Continuing the killer combo of skull designs and summer riding accessories is the Skull Cooler – the insulated polyester carrier can keep up to 12 drinks cans cool; ideal for long summer days on the road. And those perfectly chilled beverages can even be served in true Harley style, with the Bar & Shield Logo Pint Glass. The slope-sided glass is even dishwasher safe, so dads won’t need to spend their special day washing up.

For style that is equally at home on or off his bike, the black leather Pre-luxe™ Belt is a chunky style statement, which is bound to be a winner. Alternatively, the plaid shirt is a wardrobe staple that is enjoying a spell in the spotlight which shows no sign of coming to an end. The Harley-Davidson MotorClothes® #1 Plaid Shirt is short-sleeved and 100 per cent cotton, with a wear-anywhere black check pattern and subtle embroidered patch on the back yoke.

Of course, some dads deserve something extra special. The Aviator Leather ¾ Helmet will not only ensure your favourite man’s head is safe as houses; it will look incredibly cool doing it. The retro-inspired helmet is covered in smooth matte black leather, with twin white leather stripes running from the visor right to the back. A quick release chin strap and anti-sweat liner mean the helmet is also comfortable to wear in any conditions.
