stocking stuffers

Only 14 Days Til Christmas

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. 

 

Only 15 Days Til Christmas

It doesn't matter what he/she rides. Revzilla has accessories and parts for almost every motorcycle out there. Whether it's a cruiser, sportbike, classic or racebike. We have something that your favorite rider needs. 

You can't go wrong with either an electronic gift certificate (which is emailed automatically to whomever you wish to receive this awesome gift) that you can designate in any amount

Or if you need a real plastic gift card (in 4 specific dollar amounts) to present to your special recipient you can choose that option instead. Order one here.

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.

 

Only 18 Days Til Christmas

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!

Only 19 Days Til Christmas

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, Reflective Decals or Stickers

Just found these cool reflective eyes on Ebay for $7. Perfect for the back of your helmet, eh? :)

Everyone needs motorcycle stocking stuffers! Most motorcyclists I know love the idea of being more visible in one way or another. If she doesn't want to wear these on her helmet, she could probably add them to her jacket or backpack.

You can find all kinds of logos/decals online in a variety of colors and graphics. Just google for 'reflective helmet decals' or 'reflective stickers and I'm sure you can find something that she'll love.

I just ordered a roll of white, pinstripe reflective tape from eBay so I can create a pattern on the back of my white helmet. You can find tape in all different reflective colors and widths if you just google.

I've listed a few ideas for stocking stuffers that are sure to impress your Moto Lady.

2. Kriega Stash Motorcycle Wallet

Every woman needs somewhere to stash some cash, keys and ID when going for a long ride. But maybe she doesn't want to carry a bulky purse or backpack. How about something flat, easy to carry and stash under one's seat?

Price: $15.00 Where to Buy: Kriega.us

3. Pocket Tire Plugger plus CO2 Inflation

Why call AAA when you have a handy dandy tire plug kit? She'll impress all of her riding buddies when she whips this little kit out and plugs the tire herself, saving hours of precious riding time because of a flat tire. Even comes with CO2 to reinflate!

Price: $47.95 Where to Buy: Pashnit.com store

 

4. Hand Warmers

These little guys will fit nicely in the palm of her gloves, giving her a little extra warmth for that chilly ride home.

Price: $11.96/2 pk (10 pairs) as of 11/23/11 Where to Buy: Amazon.com

5. Schampa Arm Warmers

I know what you're thinking, why would she need a shirt without arms? Well, if she's anything like me, her temperature changes constantly. I easily go from hot to cold, especially with the micro climates of the Bay Area. But you never know when you need to peel a layer and these are easy to peel off.
