Quickly and easily install this holder in your garage or shop and you will have an excellent place to store your helmet when it’s not on your head.
FXC Full Finger Leather Motorcycle Gloves – On a bike, gloves aren’t so much about protection from the cold as they are about safety. These gloves are constructed with supple sheepskin leather to offer the ultimate in flexibility and feel like an extension of your own hands. They are touch screen sensitive too, so you can still operate al your favorite devices. The Velcro closures make them easy to wear and adjust for ultimate comfort.

These plugs have ceramic filters that provide ultimate protection from engine and road noise. The design allows bikers to still hear sirens, music, and phone calls. They are comfortable and fit easily inside the ear.
Ryde Wear Chrome Quick Release Helmet Strap – No more messing with straps and buckles, trying to get them secured before and after your ride. This quick release system makes securing your helmet as easy as pushing a button. Its chrome design makes it more durable than some of the less expensive, plastic ones.

MAXLER Kevlar Jeans - These jeans offer comfortable wear, and since the Kevlar hip and knee pads are removable, you can wear the jeans off the bike, as well. The pads can be easily adjusted based on height, and offer superior protection in the event of a crash. The jeans are 2 percent spandex, which allows for a little extra stretch and comfort.
A Workshop Manual – If the biker on your list loves to tinker, a manual is a must! These manuals are written for specific models of bikes, so you have to know which one he rides before making a purchase. These manuals work well for the handyman, but even as a not-so-handy-man, I have found mine to be priceless.
