Suggestions for a birthday gift

I have a brother, based in Canada who is thinking of taking up riding again, after a 20 year + break. It his birthday coming up and I wondered if anybody has some recommendations as to what may be an appropriate pressie.

I was thinking of spending around $40CAD or $30US, probably a book, almost certainly delivered from Amazon.CA

There's lots of UK centric info that Im aware of in the UK, but I wondered if there is stuff more specific or relevant to North America.

I've been working on him to get a V, but its looking like I may have to disown him... sadly he is talking of buying a Harley Dinosaur.

Stlee's list is pretty good. If you don't want to get your brother an instructional book, check out Celement Salvadori's "101 Road Tails". It's a collection of his columns from Rider magazine.
