Finding the right gift for the motorcyclist in your life is a big deal. Riding isn’t just about transportation; it’s a lifestyle. Rubenstein Law gets that, and this holiday season, we wanted to point out some gift ideas for our fellow enthusiasts. Here are various items in several styles and price points for those who live life on two wheels.

New Motorcycle Jacket

A new motorcycle jacket isn’t just functional; it’s also stylish. The protection and durability of leather make this a popular gift. To choose a jacket they’ll love to wear, look for one with plenty of protective padding, lots of ventilation, and the ability to add or remove shells and liners for different weather conditions.

There are even jackets with cooling function, quite a nice feature in hot and humid Florida. Jackets should also have reflective accents so you are seen on the road. When considering fit, it’s important to think about the type of bike your loved one rides. Where are the handle bars, how much give does there need to be through the shoulders?

The most important tip when buying a bike jacket, is don’t go cheap on the material. Cheap material will almost always bleed during the first rain. Unfortunately, they dye comes off the clothes much easier than your skin!

Jackets come in every price point and style, but you could start your search with the line of Milwaukee motorcycle jackets.

Rider Tool Kit

Many motorcyclists are well-versed in their bikes’ inner workings, and a tool kit is ideal for fast roadside repairs. You can go two routes with this gift. Either select a universal motorcycle tool kit designed to work with the vast majority of bikes or choose a model-specific kit if you know which bike the recipient has.

Motorcycle Backpack

If you don’t have a passenger seat to throw items in, how do you get your stuff from point A to point B? Many riders rely on backpacks, so you’ll want one that’s aerodynamic and durable. An aerodynamic design limits drag and wind resistance, creating a smoother ride. A sturdy backpack will stand up to daily wear in a variety of weather conditions. Consider the Goldfire backpack, which comes with space for a helmet.

Seat Upgrade

While you’ll rarely hear a biker complain about their ride, you may hear grumbling about uncomfortable seats – especially after a long ride. A nice seat upgrade offers comfort during long rides and adds a touch of luxury to their riding experience. If you don’t want to go for an entirely new seat, you can vastly improve the comfort with a seat pad or cushion.

Face Masks

No, not those face masks – we’re talking about masks that protect riders from the elements. Whether you live in a climate with wild temperature swings or not, riding against the wind or rain or with the sun hitting your face takes a toll. With a mask like the Salt Armour protective mask, riders can protect their skin and limit the pain of high-speed winds. For the best results, pick a model that is wind and waterproof.

Riding Boots

Finish off your favorite rider’s outfit with a quality set of riding boots. There are models designed for both men and women. Many women’s models offer extra support through the ankle and lower calf, including the Harley Davidson Talley Ridge boots and the Harley Davidson Amherst line. This is a gift that requires you to know the recipient well since you don’t want to go all-in on a pair of boots that don’t fit. If you aren’t 100% sure of their size, make sure to include a gift receipt so they can swap sizes or style if necessary.

Handlebar Cup Holder

You can make your favorite rider’s trips a little more enjoyable with a handlebar-mounted cup holder. Whether their beverage of choice is coffee, water, or soda, they’ll no longer have to wait until they reach their destination to enjoy a sip.

Action Camera

Functional and fun – a helmet or handlebar-mounted camera captures every detail. Riders can use this footage to create montages of their adventures and remember their best riding moments.

Getting the right gift helps the rider in your life get a little more into the motorcycle lifestyle and get more out of every ride. The team at Rubenstein Law wishes you and yours a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
