Choosing the right gift for a motorcycle rider can be a challenge.
So I’ll make it easy for you. 🙂
I compiled the list of the 77 best items and gift ideas for motorcyclists to help you find that perfect present for your particular biker.
Happy gift hunting 🙂
Useful Gifts for Motorcycle Riders
Electronic and Gadjets
Technologies have come a long way for motorcycle riders, and they can make an incredible gift.
1. Phone mount
Very appreciated item but a word of advice, do not go cheap on a phone mount for a motorcycle.
You DO NOT want your special someone to drop and lose his phone in the middle of a ride because the phone holder was unreliable.
Ask me how I know… 😐
RAM Phone mounts are what I recommend for motorcycle riders.
2. Motorcycle USB Charger
On top of a phone mount, it will go hand in hand with a motorcycle USB charger.
Just connect the charger to the battery, then secure the end of the cable with a zip-tie somewhere on the bike, and voila!
Ready to charge.
3. Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Tire pressure on a motorcycle is crucial and having real-time data on the matter is a convenient asset.
Simply remove the tires valve’s caps and replace them with the new ones.
Then wireless link everything, mount the display on the handlebars, and done! A winner gift!
4. Action Camera
Can legally save a rider’s cause by acting as a dashcam for insurance purposes and other disputes.
But mostly, these cameras are immortalizing all those beautiful riding memories and moments.
5. Communication and On-Board Music System
It is similar to a talkie-walkie inside a rider helmet.
It grants a rider communication between his passenger and riding buddies with the same device.
The included speakers can also be used to play music inside a motorcycle helmet.
6. Navigation GPS System
Always helpful to know where you are going, and a solid backup in case phone navigation doesn’t work.
Popular with touring and adventure bikers
7. Heated Handle Grips
In cold riding conditions, a rider’s hands usually are the first thing that gets chilly and uncomfortable.
Goodbye cold hands with this!
8. Hand Warmer
If it is that cold, parking somewhere and taking a break while clasping your hands on one of the theses can be a godsend for a rider.
9. Helmet Lights
A sure way to look so freaking cool straight out of a TRON movie on a motorcycle at night!
The genuine and original creator of such a fantastic idea sell them on lightmodehelmets.com
You can get some knockoff at a reduced price but don’t expect the build quality to last long.
10. Motorcycle Underglow LED Kit
Lighting up the night with a cool bike underglow. 🙂
Bonus for increased motorcycle safety with more visibility.
11. Music Speaker
For listening to some sweet tunes while riding.
The system can be mounted on motorcycle handlebars or a bike frame
Luggage and Bags
If there is one thing I am always annoyed with when riding, it is my carrying capacity, and I know it also irritates many riders.
If you play your card right, that special motorcyclist in your life will love the luggage potential you gifted.
12. Motorcycle backpack
This is a particular type of backpack for motorcycle riders featuring a hard shell to protect the user back in case of a crash.
Bonus point for making riding safer for your loved one.
13. Backpack With Helmet Holder
A rider would be delighted to receive such a practical gift with its helmet-carrying system.
Very convenient for commuting.
14. Elastic Cargo Nets
Not the sexiest gift, but it is a handy piece of equipment for strapping something on the back of a motorcycle.
15. Front Fork Bag
If the person you want to give your gift ride a cruiser type of motorcycle, it is a great idea.
For other bike styles, it probably won’t work, or it could look out of place.
For instance, It would be weird to install this on a sportbike.
This is a tough one since most decent saddlebags systems are only compatible with the model of motorcycle they are built for.
But you could choose to gift a ”throw over” type of saddlebag system that is universal and will fit any bike.
Yet you should ask your important someone if they want saddlebags in the first place.
Some people prefer the look of their motorcycle without them.
17. Motorcycle Tail Bag
Cheap and convenient.
A solid choice for a gift but… say goodbye to your passenger seat if you go on rides with this special someone on occasion. XD
18. Motorcycle Leg Bag
I used to have one when I was riding a cruiser-type motorcycle.
It is a helpful item but choose one with a zipper or clip rather than velcro to secure the main panel.
A velcro panel tends to open and flap against the force of the wind while riding, and it is distracting.
The model I linked does not have this problem.
Gifts intended for emergencies situations are not sexy… But any rider will be darn glad you gifted them such an item if they ever need it.
19. Battery Booster
Nobody in the history of humankind ever got happy to find his motorcycle battery out of juice.
This portable device will remedy that and jump-start a motorcycle without the need for another vehicle.
It can also be used as a USB charger for a phone, act as a flashlight, and an emergency blinking light to let incoming road traffic know there is an emergency situation up ahead.
20. Tire Patch Kit
What better way to ruin a riding day than a flat tire?
Most modern road motorcycles come with tubeless tires, and this patch kit will reseal this kind of tire after a flat with no problem.
Don’t forget to add a pair of pliers so your rider can remove whatever debris punctured his rubber.
Now, all your biker need is a way to inflate his tire…
21. Portable Air Pump
These come in a compact format to be carried on a motorcycle and directly plug into the bike battery to pump air in a bike’s tires.
After two flats last year, I had enough and bought this pump
Of course, now the reverse murphy law is active, and I have never had a flat ever since. 😐
Yet, with this mini compressor, I was so far able to get two other bikers back on the road with a car driver as a bonus.
That car driver was cute too. Dammit, I should have asked for her number. XD
22. Portable Tools Kits
A compact tool kit for emergency road repair and tuning of a bike.
23. First Aid Kit
This is the big thing you do not want your biker to require for himself.
But I think we can all agree that it is better to have it and not need it rather than the other way around.
Also, don’t just think this kit is only for your loved biker; he could come to the aid of someone else first aid kit in hand.
Now, here is the second category in the ‘’un-sexy’’ but valuable gifts, so your particular biker doesn’t get his bike stolen.
24. GPS Tracker
If a motorcycle disappears, all is not lost to find it with a GPS tracker installed.
You can quickly know where the bike is and report its location to the authorities with such a device.
Fair warning that these trackers come with a subscription fee for cellphone network access.
Apart from security reasons, it is also helpful to know where your biker is riding in real-time. 🙂
25. Motorcycle Alarm System
It is kind of suspicious of trying to move or start up a bike when there is a 113-decibel loud alarm going off.
That is exactly what this potential gift will do and keep thieves and idiots away.
26. Helmet Lock
It is always annoying to carry your helmet around in fear of getting it stolen when you get off your bike.
With this lock, you can leave your helmet with the motorcycle.
27. Handlebar Brake Lock
This is a lock that attaches. That brings in the brake lever and then locks it in place.
Until the lock is removed, this prevents a motorcycle from being moved or stolen.
28. Motorcycle Brake Disc Lock
Another locking system to discourage thieves.
This device can be installed on the front braking disc, preventing a motorcycle wheel from making a complete turn until the lock is removed.
Gifting riding gear is always a winning strategy.
Also, take the time to ask that special motorcyclist if he needs a new helmet or could use better protective equipment.
29. Summer Jacket
Riding in the heat with a motorcycle jacket is never fun, but you can give your loved biker a more appealing solution.
When I first bought and tried a mesh motorcycle summer jacket, here was my reaction after my first ride with it…
”Where has this been all my life?” XD
It is that good at keeping you cool and still protected, and I think your loved biker would appreciate it as much as I do.
Always popular with the old-school bikers.
31. Face Mask, Neck Tube
A neck tube is a blessing in colder weather.
Also, you know… looking cool and all 🙂
32. Photochromatic Glasses
This one is quite useful.
These are sunglasses that automatically darken or lighten depending on the ambient lighting.
They are clear at night and tinted on a sunny day.
Even if your biker uses a helmet with a tinted visor or face shield, these glasses make a great eye protection backup if there is something wrong with the helmet visor.
This is my compilation of assorted motorcycle items that many bikers would love to receive as a gift.
33. Cup Holder
It attaches to a motorcycle handlebar.
Popular with touring bikers.
34. Anti Exhaust Burn Sleeve
If your loved biker ever burned his calve on his exhaust pipes when wearing shorts, you now know what to get him 🙂
35. Insurance and Registration Holder
Got to be looking organized and professional when the cops ask for it 🙂
36. Motorcycle Cover
If your biker ever parks his bike outside, this will protect it from the element.
Also, an excellent item to cover a motorcycle when in storage for a long time.
37. Water Flask With Straw
I found by accident how valuable these things are with a motorcycle helmet on your head.
The straw is flexible and long enough to fit under or over a full-face helmet chin-bar.
With this water bottle, you don’t need to take off your helmet to drink water.
38. Hydration Pack
Again the straw will fit under or over a motorcycle helmet chin-bar without the need for a person to remove his helmet to drink water.
You can also take the water bladder and fit it in pretty much any other backpack.
39. Faceshield Protective Bag
If your biker swap multiple helmet Faceshield for his helmet gets him this, he will appreciate it.
It is never fun to realize that a spare face shield got scratched because it was not adequately protected.
Tools and Maintenance Items
When you are a motorcycle rider, you will need tools.
It is borderline mandatory.
So here are some gift ideas if your favorite rider is lacking something in his toolbox.
40. Tools set
Making a complete toolset for motorcycles is kind of hard.
Every motorcycle is different and requires different tools from one another.
Yet my favorite YouTubers had a crack at making a ”universal” toolset list for working on a bike. Go check it out.
A great gift option for someone who doesn’t have one yet.
Always helpful to carry around one of these.
42. Owner and Service Manual
If you particular biker doesn’t have his motorcycle’s owner or service manual, this is a great gift idea!
You can get pretty much any copy of any motorcycle manual with virtual books now in case the paperback version is unavailable.
43. Wheel Cleaning Stand
A handy little piece of equipment for making a motorcycle wheel turn without having the motorcycle moving.
Very convenient to clean a rim and do chain cleaning and maintenance.
44. Chain Cleaning Kit
Motorcycle chains need frequent cleaning, and more chain brushes are always a welcomed addition to remedy that.
45. Motorcycle Care Cleaner
So that your biker’s ride stays clean, fresh, and polished.
46. Leather Conditioner
Caring product for all the leather a biker may have.
For motorcycle seats, jackets, gloves, saddlebags, etc.
47. Helmet Lens Face Shield Cleaner
A welcome item to remove the million dead bugs splattered on a rider helmet visor.
48. Tire Pressure Gauges
Motorcyclists should always keep a close eye on their tire pressure.
So give your biker the tools he needs for that.
49. Battery Tenter And Maintainer
A motorcycle battery will drain over time when the bike sits for a long time.
So if your loved motorcyclist needs to store his bike, don’t let his battery die on your watch.
Gifts for Motorcycle Enthusiast’s Everyday Life
Clothing and Accessories
Who doesn’t love receiving clothing referencing one of his favorite thing to do in life?
I did laugh out loud when I saw that.
There is a bit of truth in that segment 🙂
Wearin’ dog tags while riding with stamped medical and identification information is actually smart.
It can help medical personnel in case of a motorcycle crash.
Otherwise, there is plenty of great decorative motorcycle necklaces available.
I stand by that statement myself 🙂
