Motorcyclist Christmas Gift List
If you have a motorcyclist in your life that you need help shopping for this holiday season, here are some items that they can probably really use but may have put off buying themselves. These are items that great for him or her, but mostly the motorcycle. Find these items locally at motorcycle dealerships or shops.
Battery Tender Junior
This smart charger will maintain any 12 volt lead acid, AGM, or gel battery. Once you bolt on the pigtail, you can easily plug in your motorcycle everytime you park in the garage and it will maintain or “float” the battery for long periods of time. This will extend the life of your battery and always have you ready to ride.
EZ Air Tire Gauge
Use with an air compressor for quick tire inflation by clipping the gauge on tire valve stem to read pressure. No need to remove while inflating, and it has a push button valve to bleed air down to desired pressure, while providing continuous reading until the chuck is released from valve stem. It takes up a little more space than a normal pen gauge but it is accurate, easy and quick to use.
Easy to attach, buckle, and tighten, the Motorcycle/ATV Adjustable Strap is rated to carry 100 pounds (200 pounds burst strength) 1 inch wide, adjusts from 18 to 60 inches long. Two-piece strap consisting of a webbing element with loop attachments and an elastic element joined by quick-release buckle. The elastic section provides tension; the webbing section adjusts for size, ensuring you have exactly the right length with exactly the right tension. Each section is attached independently around a luggage rack, frame tube, foot peg carrier, the luggage is placed between the attachment points, the two parts of the strap are buckled together, and the strap is tightened. Designed specifically for motorcycle and ATV use. Unlike bungee cords these won’t injure you or your ride, and you never see them lying on the roadway because they don’t fail.

Oxford Rider First Aid Kit
A small, easily packable first aid kit that has the basics that a rider hopefully will never need. If you have it, you most likely won’t need it. And if you do need it, you’ll be so glad you have it.
Frogg Toggs Road Toad Rain Set
Made with Dri2Pore, Outer & Inner Layers: Frogg Toggs' exclusive nonwoven fabric blend – intensified in weight and durability for the tough jobs. Still comfortable and packable. Best thing about Frogg Toggs is that it breathes. You won’t get overheated as it lets vapor out, but keeps rain and wind from coming in.

This is without a doubt the fastest, most effective, most meticulous, precise and systematic method for giving your chain a thorough cleaning. The brush – 2.25 coils of 360º chemical resistant nylon – is fast, efficient and simple to use. It forces its bristles between the plates where dried and hardened chain lube, road sand, glass, tar and other materials gather to form a hard shield of abrasive dirt where the O-ring meets the chain plates.

Lastly, here are various books to inspire you to become a better motorcyclist. Motorcycling is a perishable skill, and a skill that you can always improve on no matter how many miles you’ve traveled. A complacent motorcyclist is an unsafe motorcyclist. Some books to get you through the winter off-season are:
