If we're not out riding, we're dreaming of riding, or planning our next ride. So when it comes to holiday gifts, riders are a pretty easy bunch to please.

But we noticed something: most of the gift guides for motorcycle riders look very similar -- so we thought we'd spice it up a bit:

We started with a dozen online motorcycle magazines, review sites, blogs, and e-retailers ...

... and hand-selected gifts - from the useful and practical to the unusual and hard to find.

Here's a curated collection of gifts for riders, at every price point.

Last minute holiday shopping for your favorite rider just got a whole lot easier!

Without asking, we took the keys to his new red Firebird, and drove to the bagel store.  Unfortunately, we totaled it on the way home.

We hope our gift guide helps you celebrate the dads in your life in an equally memorable (but less dramatic) way!
