8 Christmas Gifts for Motorcycle Riders

8 Gifts That Are Sure to Satisfy the Motorcycle Lover in Your Life

With the countdown to Christmas well underway, it’s time to pick out that perfect gift for your loved one. And if they are an avid motorcyclist, it can be hard to know where to start — especially if you don’t know much about their favorite hobby. That’s why we’ve tried to make your job easier by providing eight of the best gifts for motorcycle lovers.


A Very Clean Garage

Motorcycle Gift Ideas Clean Garage

Assuming the motorcycle lover in your life spends a lot of time in their garage, what gift is more practical than cleaning it out for them? Spend a day decluttering and wiping down their workspace and see if it doesn’t win you major points. If you’re worried about where you will put some of the garage junk, consider renting a self-storage unit until you have time to figure it out. Renting a garage space can be very affordable, with average rental price being around $85 a month in some areas. 

 

Motorcycle Boots

Not only are motorcycle boots (which can run you between $100 and $300, and that’s on the low end) aesthetically appealing, but they also make the riding experience safer. Designed with motorcyclists in mind, a solid tread helps keep the rider’s feet from slipping off the pegs. Also, many of them are waterproof and work great in cold weather.


Biker Jacket

Like with boots, it’s hard to beat the look of a good motorcycle jacket. While going leather is always a solid option, there are great jackets made of all kinds of materials these days. The most important factors to consider when choosing the right jacket for your loved one is protection (from riding and weather) and comfort. However, that doesn’t mean the right style and fashion of jacket can’t put a strut in their step.


Tank Bag

The tank bag is one those essential add-ons that will be used and appreciated by a rider each and every day. There are several factors to consider when choosing a tank bag, such as:

  • Size and shape
  • Materials it’s made of
  • Features it offers
  • Mounting options

If you want to better your chances of picking the perfect tank bag, learn as much as you can about your loved one’s daily riding experience. If you’re looking for a great bag that won’t drain your budget, Young Choppers recommends the Chase Harper 450M Magnetic Tank Bag ($59).


Compression Apparel

Compression apparel that’s designed with cold weather in mind can enable your loved one to ride during any season. From tops and leggings to gloves and balaclavas, you can add layers without restricting movement. Also, if the day warms up, compression apparel becomes cooler, so they may not even need to remove it.


Toolkit

Motorcycle Toolkit Christmas Gift Idea

This is one of the most practical gifts on the list. You want your loved one to have everything they need when they work on their motorcycle and when they go riding, and that includes tools for basic maintenance and repairs. A fully equipped motorcycle tool set is an extravagant present that will make your loved one’s time in the garage even more special than before. A roadside toolkit will ensure that they make it home on their motorcycle and not in a tow truck.


Helmet Cleaner

This one makes for a great stocking stuffer. Helmet cleaners will make it easy for your loved one to keep their helmet and visor in good shape. You can find products that clean and polish every part of the helmet, and some even offer anti-fogging and anti-glare.


With a little research and shopping, you should be able to find the perfect gift for the motorcycle lover in your life. Review the details of the items on this list, read through reviews, and consider your loved one’s everyday riding experience before you pick out their gift. It may take a little more effort to find the right thing for a specialty like motorcycling, but it will be well worth it when you see the surprise on your loved one’s face!
