Holiday Gift Guide for Every Rider

When you have friends or family members who are motorcyclists, you can never go wrong with getting them a motorcycle themed gift. That’s because for a lot of bikers, riding is more than just a hobby—it’s a passion. Treat them to a motorcycle-related present and you’re sure to have a happy biker.

Check out this list of gift ideas and you’ll have no problem finding the perfect gift for the motorcycle-loving person in your life.

Motorcycle Jacket

If you want to make the biker in your life happy, buy them a brand-new motorcycle jacket. Not only will you be giving them a stylish new article of clothing, but you’ll be providing them with an important piece of safety equipment. Studies show that protective gear like a proper riding jacket can drastically reduce the severity of injuries sustained in a crash. Great gift and a safer rider? We call that a win-win.


Every biker can use a good pair of riding gloves. Quality gloves will protect the riders’ hands from injury while also keeping the biker’s fingers warm during chilly rides in late fall and early spring. Make sure you find a pair that offers both comfort and durability as a clunky set can be troublesome, especially for less experienced bikers.

Care Kit

Ask any motorcycle enthusiast what they need most and you’ll likely hear the same response: a quality care kit. Gift the biker in your life a bundle of motorcycle care items and you’re sure to score a gift-giving victory. Look for a kit with a top shelf cleaner, wax, leather conditioner and wipe towel that will easily fit into a bike’s saddlebags.

Bike Cover

A durable waterproof bike cover makes for an excellent gift. It will help keep the bike safe from the elements and can be used as a protective tent during inclement weather. Be sure to choose a cover with proper venting so moisture can escape. You’ll also want quality straps to ensure the cover stays in place during high-wind conditions.

Travel Bag

You can’t go wrong with a well-made, stylish travel bag. They’re perfect for storing valuables during long rides and can help keep items like cellphones and wallets safe. Leather bags are ideal as they offer riders durability and style.

Heated Gear

Give the gift of more time on the bike. With heated gear, riders can endure colder conditions and extend the motorcycle season. This is a huge perk, especially in a state like South Dakota where the temperature starts to drop early. Heated gloves, jackets, and socks don’t just make cold-weather riding a possibility, they make it enjoyable too.

This holiday season, give the gift of awesome motorcycle gear. If you’re looking for more ideas, check out our blog on riding gifts for Mother and Father’s Day.
