With Dad’s day coming up in a little more than two weeks (that’s June 15 for the procrastinators out there), we here at wanted to compile a list of things we think all the riding dads out there would like to receive as a token of appreciation.

However, these grooved 5-foot by 10-foot mats from Griot’s Garage are a solution. Impervious to oil and grease, they provide a tough, sturdy, non-slip and cushioned place setting for your ride. And when it’s time to clean up, simply take it outside and hose it off with soap and water. Find out more at

Sticking with the clean theme, the portable parts washer from BikeMaster is a great gift for the dad who takes pride in having a spotless motorcycle. Motorcycle maintenance sometimes means disassembly, and while the parts are off the bike anyway, why not give them a bath before reassembling? The lightweight and corrosion-proof case is also insulated and much safer than cleaning nasty bike parts in the sink. UL- and SAA-certified, the parts washer comes with a filter pre-installed and has a flexible spout for washing those hard-to-reach areas. is the place to go for more information.

Picture it: you’re by yourself in the garage, wanting to take off the rear wheel to get a tire changed. So, you grab your rear stand, pick your bike off the sidestand, and try to balance the bike by holding the tail – all while guiding the rear stand onto the swingarm and pushing down and away in order to lift the bike up. With Pit Bull’s Forward Handle rear stand, things just got much simpler. With the Forward stand, you can place yourself at the handlebars while maneuvering the stand, giving you greater control of the bike. Then, once the rear is up in the air, the handle doesn’t obstruct access to the wheel during removal or reinstallation. It’s a brilliant device dads out there are sure to love.

If the dad in your life rides a Harley, odds are high that he wants a set of pipes for it. Considering The Motor Company tried to patent its signature sound, that V-Twin rumble makes a lot of riders perk up whenever they hear it. If he doesn’t already have a set, get dad a pair of Screamin’ Eagle Slip-Ons. Relatively easy to install, there’s an option suitable for virtually every late-model H-D out there. The particular chrome set shown here is embossed with the Screamin’ Eagle logo and is also stamped by the EPA, meaning it’s 50-state legal. Dad is sure to love it, and the pipes are backed by a one-year warranty. Get him a set at the Harley-Davidson website.

3. Dunlop Q3 tires, $165.95 – $170.95 Front, $204.95 – 290.95 Rear

Now let’s say your dad likes splitting his time between the street and the racetrack. He’ll want rubber that will warm up quickly for his usual weekend rides, while having a solid performer at the track to rip around on. The Dunlop Q3 is that tire. The Q3 incorporates CFT, or Carbon Fiber Technology. Using carbon filaments in the tire’s sidewall, the advantage, Dunlop says, is lighter feeling on turn-in, better stability at full lean, and more composure driving out of a corner. It’s amazing that a tire with such high track performance can perform equally well on the street, but the Q3 benefits from Dunlop’s vast experience in the AMA paddock and it shows. Available in most popular sizes, if dad is looking for new rubber on his sport(y) bike, look no further.

2. Scorpion EXO-R2000 Helmet $369.95 – $429.95

top 10 father s day gifts over 100

It would have been easy to stick one of those famous Japanese helmets onto this list for cool Father’s Day gifts, but there are many other players in the field of premium helmets. Some of them, like this Scorpion EXO-R2000, won’t hurt the bank account nearly as much. Starting at $369.95 for solid colors, the EXO-R2000 will give dad the same protection Alvaro Bautista enjoys each time he lines up on the MotoGP grid. In fact, Bautista provided much of the input for the 2000 during its design phase.

Featuring Scorpion’s proprietary Thermodynamic Composite Technology, its shell is formed from a five-layer blend of Aramid, fiberglass and poly-resin fibers to provide great protection. Fit is enhanced thanks to four different shell sizes for virtually any head out there. In addition, Scorpion’s cheekpad inflation system is also a neat feature to help customize the 2000’s fit even further. The emergency release system is a vital safety feature normally found on much pricier helmets, while the inclusion of a dark visor with every EXO-R2000 makes the price of entry a little easier to swallow. Scorpion USA is where to go for more information.

1. Ducati Superleggera $65,000

top 10 father s day gifts over 100

Seeing as this list was simply about items over $100, we couldn’t cap it off without going to the wild extreme of our price limit. If you really (and we mean really) love the dad in your life and have an extra $65,000 burning a hole in your wallet, we’re sure he’d love to have the Ducati 1199 Superleggera. Meaning Super Light in Italian, only 500 will be built, with approximately 75% already spoken for. Judging by its name, it should already be clear why this bike is so special. Using the most exotic materials currently available throughout, the Superleggera is littered with items built from magnesium, carbon fiber and titanium. It’s claimed to weigh 397 lbs with 90% of its fuel, putting it 27 lbs lighter than the already impressive Panigale R. Combined with its 200 hp claimed output, Ducati says the Superleggera has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any production motorcycle. All we know is it’s fast, it’s sexy, it’s expensive, and without a shadow of a doubt, dad is surely going to love it.

    heh heh heh. $65k for 1 bike. I could buy 12 bikes with $65k burning a hole in my wallet. Some of them even new!

    I think i'd feel odd riding a bike that costs more than my HOUSE. Much rather have several to play with :)

    • Kevin Kevin on Jun 10, 2014

      Oh go ahead and wish for the bike. If you get one you can always sell it, pay off the house and buy a couple of fun bikes to play with.
