Hello,
Well, this is my first post anywhere ever - Harley, stocks and you guys got me up for it. Thanks.

I just wanted to say that I discovered that giving HD stocks in a DRIP account to friends and family is the way to go. They are expensive to start percentage-wise( I typically give a few shares and this costs $30), but it's a one time cost and so it's just part of the gift. Not a burden on the people you give it to. It's perfect for people who don't have enough money to have a broker or don't know where to start - and of course who *love* Harley. It's a kick for the unitiated to get year-end reports and stuff (as opposed to my feelings of being flooded with reports and proxies).

Vroom, vrooom!
