There are birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and so many important dates that have to be marked by gifts. My family and friends know I am crazy about bikes and they struggle to get me gifts to feed my obsession. As a motorcyclist, I will tell you that we value something unique and special that makes us feel almost the same thrill of taking off on a bike.
Currently, there are so many motorcycle merchandise out here. The problem is sifting through to get the perfect personal gift. If you have a motorcyclist in your life, this list is for you.
1. Motorcycle toolkit
Portable motorcycle toolkits come packed with all the essentials one would need for a quick roadside repair. From pliers to screwdrivers, wrenches, and torque. It easily fits in a standard saddle bag or backpacks.
The catch is getting one that fits the bike model. So you have to find the exact fit of the bike from a motorcycle parts shop. If you don’t have the details it’s best to go with a universal motorcycle toolkit as this one works with almost all models.
2. Bike backpack and saddlebag
Ask any biker and they would tell you how precious an aerodynamic backpack and saddlebag are important. There are numerous designs and styles available from slim sports-oriented to high-capacity models.
However, when choosing backpacks you have to consider the weight and height of the receiver. Ensure the shoulder straps and hip belts are adjustable. Also, a waterproof bag is a plus as it will be an all-weather-bag. These tips will help you in choosing the best motorbike backpack.
3. Action camera
If the motorcyclist in your life is an adventure junky then you can’t go wrong with an action camera. It’s usually mounted on the helmet or handlebars. I love it because I can capture all of my treasured moments. Also, I use it to look at my technique and improve where needed. Worst case scenario, it provides evidence in case of an accident.
You have to make sure it’s waterproof and can withstand wind and any other harsh weather element.
4. Helmet communication system
We live in a connected world where staying in touch while on the road is part of a rider’s life. A bike helmet communication system makes it safer to communicate while still riding. Thanks to Bluetooth technology and Dynamic Mesh Communication (DMC), you can stay connecter whenever you go. Plus you can also stream some music.
5. Handle cup holder
Refreshment on the go? This makes it convenient as you don’t have to make stop overs. They are available in stylish designs and are clipped to the handlebars. Get one with a sip-on-the-go ability and trust me, the recipient will be on cloud 9.
