Gift idea for a Harley lover?

A friend of ours has just turned 50. As a present to himself, he's buying a Harley Davison motorcycle to celebrate.

We'd like to get him something for around CHF200-300 to go with the bike. For what it's worth, it's his first bike. I don't want to get him anything for the bike itself (as I'll let him have the fun of personalising it himself) but I'm guessing that he'll probably go through a phase where he goes mad for anything with a Harley logo on it.

I'll assume he has all the normal kit you need to ride a bike (jackets, boots, gloves, helmet etc).

Anyone have any ideas?

Training wheels?

A license?

Re: Gift idea for a Harley lover?

Or a nice, high-end accessory that he's unlikely to buy right now, such as a watch, or a pen ? Examples:







There's a whole bunch of other collectibles and apparel ideas here and here.

Edit: just found this section of the HD website with super cool cheap skins for a miriad of devices. Pretty cool.

If I were to get a Harley as a first bike at age 50, I'd get one like this:



Though, this is more my style:



And ever since I saw one of these back in upstate NY back in '81, I've wanted one of these:
