Gift ideas for motorcycle enthusiasts
With the holidays coming up, and Black Friday rearing its ugly head, your blood pressure might already be a tad bit elevated. Black Friday deals, sales, and stampedes have a habit of doing that to a person. However, there’s a way to alleviate that stress fairly easily, shop online. There are no lines, no crazy axe-wielding lunatics, and you usually get a better price on whatever you’re buying.
With that in mind, for those of you with loved ones that ride motorcycles, we’ve come up with five of the best gifts under $100 for the motorcycle enthusiast in your life. RELATED: Breaking In Shoei and Alpinestars’ Latest Gear Under Armour Cold Gear
For much of the country right now, the weather is getting colder, and even beginning to snow. This limits the amount of time motorcycle riders have on their bikes. Regular motorcycle gear just isn’t made for cold temperatures, and what is made for those times, can be hugely expensive. What you can do is invest in a set of Under Armour's Cold Gear that helps insulate you from the extreme weather. We’ve used this multiple times in the past and it works wonders. What’s best is that you can get it from anywhere between $28-$70. MotoCentric Mototrek Tank Bag
Riding around with a backpack isn’t just tiring, it could be dangerous. Having a tank bag that can survive inclement weather, and carry a bunch of your incidentals is hugely helpful when going on longer trips. The MotoCentric Mototrek Tank Bag solves that problem. It can either be had with a magnetic or strap base, and fits almost every type of motorcycle out there. It also has a clear plastic shield so you can check your cell phone. The tank bag also won’t break the bank given its $59.99 price tag. RELATED: The Honda NM4 Is Less Visionary Than a Prius DailyShoes Women’s Motorcycle Boots
For the woman that rides, she not only needs good boots, but useful ones as well. The DailyShoes Women's Motorcycle Boot combines safety, good looks, and useful features. The motorcycle boots come with a zipper pocket alongside the ankle of the boot to hold keys, money, credit cards, IDs, and according to DailyShoes, can also hold a pocketknife for when you want to shank people or pry open a beer bottle like a lady! These boots run anywhere between $12.99-$69.99. GreatShield Clip-Grip Mount
Having GPS on your phone is wonderful, when you can see it. For motorcycle riders, you either A) figure out where you are going ahead of time, and pray that you remember the streets, or B) have your headphones play the audio from your GPS, and hope Google or Apple maps actually tells you when to turn when you actually need to turn. The GreatShield Clip-Grip allows you to see where you are and where you are going by tightly holding onto your phone. It’s the perfect tool for long trips, or just trips to where you’ve never been. It’s also on sale right now for just $9.99! RELATED: Kawasaki’s Vulcan S Will Convince You To Ride Motorcycle Camping Made Easy
