It’s that time of year—holiday shopping is in full swing. But what do you buy for the motorcycle rider who seemingly has everything? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are 13 of our favorite gift ideas for the rider in your life.
Gadgets and gear
1. Yeti Sidekick dry gear case
No matter how often a rider checks the weather, unexpected rain can add complications to a long ride. This small dry-gear case will give your favorite motorcycle rider one less thing to worry about, knowing their valuables are safe and dry so they can continue riding. Plus, it’s easy to detach, so they can keep everything they need with them on and off their bike.
We all need to stay hydrated, but when someone is on a long ride or where water isn’t easily and safely accessible, it can be tough. Handlebar cupholders make it much easier for riders to grab a sip of water when they’re stopped at a light or making a quick pit stop. There are many different options at a range of price points, making this the perfect gift if you’re on a budget.
3. Action cameras and handlebar mounts
If the motorcycle rider in your life takes the scenic route and likes to capture their experiences on video, then this is the perfect gift. GoPro is a popular action camera, and there are plenty of other brands on the market that offer great action cameras and handlebar mounts.
4. Kryptonite Keeper motorcycle disc lock
Whether for travel or a daily commute, every rider should be able to secure their bike when they aren’t riding. Unfortunately, motorcycle theft is common, so if you know your favorite rider doesn’t have a lock, get them this lock and help them protect their pride and joy.
A true riding essential. Gloves can wear out quickly since they’re constantly exposed to the elements. A new pair is never a bad idea! There are plenty of types of motorcycle gloves to consider as you shop, including short cuff, gauntlet, summer gloves, and waterproof.
Every motorcycle rider needs a good jacket. Not only do quality jackets protect the rider from the sun and rain, most also have extra padding that can protect the rider in the event of an accident. If you’re okay spending a bit more money on a gift, this could be the way to go.
7. Waterproof motorcycle cover
This is a particularly thoughtful—and practical—gift for the rider who needs to store their motorcycle outside, especially in rainy or snowy climates.
It’s never a bad time for a new toolkit—especially for riders who seemingly spend every waking hour in the garage, tinkering with their bikes. A toolkit can help your rider ensure their motorcycle is always ready for the next adventure.
If the rider in your life is known for being a bit directionally challenged, then this is the gift for them! A motorcycle GPS can attach directly to their bike and keep them heading in the right direction.
10. Tile GPS tracker
Is there anything more frustrating than misplacing your keys just as you’re about to head out the door? If your rider is prone to misplacing things, make sure they can always keep track of their keys with this easy GPS tracker.
Handwarmers may sound a little basic, even boring. But trust us—on a chilly, windy ride, your motorcycle rider will be thankful they have a pack of these handy.
12. Warm socks
As long as your rider has outgrown that childhood annoyance over receiving socks for the holidays, they’ll absolutely appreciate a pair of warm, waterproof socks. Nothing is more uncomfortable on a long ride than wet or cold feet, so this is a great gift option.
