Best way to present a Bike

Strange question...

But...

What would be the best way to present a surprise bike? As in, buying a bike for someone that is a total surprise?

Any help would be appreciated.

ride up on the bike, get off, hand over the keys while stating "wow that was fun!!! care to join me!?! It's all yours!!!"

i dunno, i think even if you had a group of guys kick the out of me and hand me the keys while i was down i would still be totally FLOORED!!!!!!

Guess it all depends on the where and when. If you can get it home into a garage, without them knowing, then just nonchalantly lead them out there and say "whose bike is this? Oh, must be yours!"

Scantily clad is still a big plus...

they go from scared to....HAPPY! nice...
that would work, but #1 he works on post, #2 he's in Kansas right now for work. So it'll have to be a "when he gets home" surprise.

Since I have to pick him up from the airport, I was thinking about leaving it in the garage, and then when I open then garage he'll be like "who tf's bike is that" then I'll hand him the keys.

Or I even thought about putting it in the house, with a bow, so when he walks in he'll see it.

If you can get it in the house or garage that would be the way to go. And get one of those huge bows to go on it.


















But I'm still saying scantily clad FTW!

Here's the question: how much do you really want to surprise him?

First, you need an accomplice.

Get the bike home, in the house. Give him some good excuse why you can't be there to pick him up; that's where the accomplice comes in. Have the helper call you when they are on the way, so you can get everything ready.

When he comes in, be on the bike like below, and smile and say "Hey babe.. see anything you like?"

Although, he might not see the bike right away.....





Just a thought.. I'm a guy and I know what I like.... just sayin'
