When it comes to figuring out what would best suit a Harley Davidson party, it'd be wise to just keep it simple and choose the obvious. Bikes. If you have friends with Harley bikes, you'd not only invite them, but their bikes as well. You might not want to have this kind of party in a suburban area; you'd want to go to a vacant parking lot, or some place you can park your bikes, allowing them to be showcased by viewers. All you need is a grill to cook burgers and steaks with drinks for the guests visiting. A dress code wouldn't be required (that's a bit too classy for this event), but leather pants, skull caps, bandannas and other biker gear would be welcomed. Eating outside and partying with classic American rock would let any passersby who owned a Harley feel at home. If you're celebrating a party and need a 40th birthday gift for a man, something that has a Harley Davidson theme like a watch or money clip with the logo on it would be fine.
