Wills was in Little Rock, Ark., Monday to perform at a Daly fund-raiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. One of the items up for auction was a silver and black 100th anniversary model Harley-Davidson.
Wills recalls that Daly, with whom he has been friends about 10 years, 'leans over and says, 'Willsy, how often do you go out and ride your Harley?''
'I said, 'I don't have a Harley.' And he says, 'You don't? Well you do now.''
Daly's $20,000 bid went to the charity while Wills, a dirt biker in his younger days, went home with the Harley.
The gesture was in appreciation for Wills' help with fund-raisers over the years.
'What do you say when a friend up and buys you a Harley?' Will said.
Wills, whose hits include '19 Something' and 'Wish You Were Here,' took the motorcycle for a spin around the parking lot, but he thought better of riding it back to Nashville.
'No way,' Wills said.
