Christmas is a wonderful time of the year where we allow ourselves to indulge in family time, food, drink, merriment and the time of year where we show people that we care through the buying of gifts. Gift buying however can often be tricky, some people like too many things and therefore it can become difficult to decide what to buy, others have very specific interests and this can pose its own problems as well.
Today we are going to take a look at some great gift ideas for bikers, the adrenalin seekers who love nothing more than throwing their leathers on, jumping on their hog and hitting the road, here are our top picks if the person you are buying for loves their bikes.
Somewhat more of a pragmatic gift would be to purchase motorcycle gear, riders need to replace their gear every year or so and you can help them out big time by purchasing a piece or two. This could be anything from some new stylish boots that will keep their feet and legs safe on the road to a cool motorbike jacket. You should probably stay away from buying helmets as they need to be tried and tested by the rider but you could most certainly look into buying something like a new pair of gloves for them, there are some awesome brands out there like Speed and Strength gloves who offer a wide range of functional gloves, many with crazy designs. From a price point of view, gloves may well be the best option for that Christmas gift.
Unlike those who drive cars, almost all motorcyclists are bike enthusiasts and there is loads of stuff on the market that you can buy for them to put in their home or in their garage. Some great options here are things like the old metal garage signs with pictures of vintage bikes on them or even replica bike statues that they can keep around the home.
As with most areas of interest, technology has entered the world of motorbikes and this is a great avenue you for you to find some great present ideas. There is lots to choose from, you could buy an intercom set so that the recipient of your gift can chat with their riding buddy, a helmet cam so that they can look back on their journey when they get home or even a slickly designed GPS system that is tailor-made for bikes with a smaller screen and waterproof shield. Technology can also help riders avoid on-the-road problems like flat tires and you can buy handy air compressors and inflation devices.
Space saving is a key to a motorcyclists life on the road and there are some great toolkits on the market which can help them to fix their bike up should they have problems on the road. Many of these kits are smartly designed to ensure that they don’t take up much space on the bike and they can save the day should a breakdown occur, a great gift idea.
