Best Christmas presents for motorcyclists

Give the biker in your life the gift of happiness with these motorcycle-inspired presents

Santa rides a Ducati

by Jim Blackstock |

It’s that time of year; cheesy Christmas music everywhere you go, light displays that can be seen from space and the annual competition to see who can generate the most ‘Awws’ from their Christmas advert (the John Lewis one gets our vote).

And every motorcyclist in the country begins to dread the onslaught of bike-inspired gifts that give rise to forced grins and gratitude.

Of course, it’s all about the giving, not the receiving at Christmas but that being the case, if you are reading this and you want to give something to a motorcyclist, then this selection of gifts will genuinely make them smile. Everything here is cool, useful, interesting, entertaining or a combination of both.
