9 Days Til Christmas, Kriega R20 Backpack

The Kriega R20 Backpack is one of my favorite moto accessories. I've never worn any other backpack that was this comfortable to ride with. Fits my frame perfectly, not too small and not too big, just right for daily essentials like lunch, a change of shoes and an ipad and a small purse. If you want something for a 2-3 day weekend then an R25 is in order. But for the daily commuter, this is a must.

And today only, Revzilla is having a 10% off Kriega Sale. How convenient!

I love this Roland Sands Slam Wallet. It's tiny. Perfect if you just need to take essentials with you for the day while you're out riding: cash, credit card, driver license, insurance card. Done. 

Comes in black or tobacco and it's on SALE for $22.00 @ Revzilla

Unless your person is picky about wallets/accessories, then you may want to pass on this but I think it works well for everyone regardless if what he/she rides. What a great stocking stuffer.

Stuff this Alpinestars Tech Neck Warmer in your friend's/partner's/neighbor's stocking and they will make you brownies/cookies/muffins forever. Ok, maybe not forever. But if you're lucky they'll make you some as a thank you.

Who doesn't like staying warm? I mean, have you ever heard a motorcyclist say

"Naw, I hate being warm in the Winter. I'd rather be freezing". 

Okay, I've met lots of folks who run hot but who actually wants to be Freezing? No one. I wear a neckwarmer 365 days a year. Even when it's bloody hot, I still wear a really light one like this so I can sweat into something and my helmet/jacket doesn't rub on my skin. 

And if your person is really coldblooded, then he/she will want 2-3-4-5 of these in their stockings as backups. And for $19.95 it makes for a great stocking stuffer.

Happy Shopping and don't forget to come back tomorrow for Day 16.

Everyone should have at least a small toolkit to maintain her motorcycle. These small toolpacks have just the essential tools to do simple adjustments like tighten loose mirror bolts or adjust levers. 

You don't need a huge professional toolkit, just a few basics in case you need it. This RTM3 Roadtech Metric Tool Kit by CruzTools ($89.95) works for all Metric motorcycles. What does that mean? Basically anything Japanese and older British bikes like my Triumph. (After mine, they changed some of the bolts to Torx style) Or, if you have a Harley enthusiast in your life, they make a Harley specific kit too

Also, if you're in Chicago, Silicon Valley, San Francisco or Philadelphia pair it with a Gift Certificate from one of the MotoGuilds and you have a killer Christmas gift :) 

Come back tomorrow for Day 17!

So here's an idea for a stocking stuffer.

Everyone needs something to maintain their riding boots. Nothing like wet, cold feet to ruin a ride. If your favorite motorcycle person commutes, travels, then warm, dry feet are always a good thing!

Nikwax makes a great selection of products for maintaining your boots, gloves and technical riding gear (as well as non motorcycle specific technical apparel). I use their Tech Wash to take care of my textile jackets and pants. 

Stay tuned for day 18 tomorrow!

Motorcycle Gift Idea, Faster Ultimate Collection

It doesn't matter if you like cruisers, dirtbikes, sportbikes, cars, tractors or bicycles. This series will simply keep your eyes glued to the tv for 5-6 hours repeating the word wow over and over again.

There's something about watching motorcycles racing at 200mph that makes everyone say 'whoa. If you haven't seen this series, you're missing out. If you know someone who appreciates action sports and risky dayjobs, they're going to love this series too.

This series breaks down the world of international motorcycle racing, how crazy dangerous it is and the small group of men who keep coming back year after year, injury after injury to do it again. You'll also meet the incredible Valentino Rossi (Italian), the motorcycle superstar who's won (and lost) MotoGP many times over; the few Americans that have competed in and won/lost races at MotoGP.

The only place I found this box set online was sportsflicks.com. Not bad for $33.95 plus shipping.
