As we all know, Christmas gifts are hard to think of for others, especially when they have an interest or hobby you don’t know anything about. If you have a family member or a friend that is a motorcyclist and you have no clue where to start, then we have comprised a list of things that most bikers would love to receive on Christmas Day without breaking the bank. Here at 5-Ways, we will be cutting some select item prices in the lead up to Christmas for stocking fillers or a bigger main present.
Things like a new Helmet are an awesome gift idea but come with many many setbacks, if you don’t know the person's Helmet size, or their preferred Make and model, which colour? Which pattern? This lift will consist of smaller items that may be forgotten but are always useful, and leading into some more practical bits of kit, maybe for winter riding and keeping your loved ones warm, or even some garage essentials that they may not have.
All Motorcyclists have some form of Bike cleaning ritual and are more than likely a preferred brand for cleaning their pride and joy.

The ever-popular Motul range will have something in their line-up worthy of their bike.

Bikes need sleep too! If your significant other cover their other significant other when they put their beloved bike away they may have different covers for different situations, an indoor cover, and an outdoor cover, maybe a waterproof, weatherproof cover that they've never told you how much it was. Well whatever the case may be, covers used daily, forever being removed and then applied do wear. If you've heard your biker moan that they need another cover! Again! Then we will have something that would tick a box.

When it comes to purchasing motorcycle clothing for someone it can be a little tricky, especially if you are not a biker. From the perspective of a non-biker, I'm sure when it's cold and raining and you see a motorcyclist and just think it's lunacy Why do that when they could get a nice warm car, and avoid the rain? And when you realise that you know someone who rides, and they are out in all weather, or even if they ride only in the summer months, every biker has been a little cold, and every biker has been very wet at some point in their time on two wheels.
Ideally, a motorcycle jacket would be warm, waterproof with decent armour and abrasion ratings. We have some offerings here, for those who are new and on a budget, to those who travel a lot on two wheels and see all weathers and all conditions.

Gloves are a classic buy for motorcyclists, maybe a new pair every year. The Majority will spend a lot of their pocket money on some expensive pair of summer gloves that they love wearing, and then hate riding in the cold because they have to put their nice gloves away and wear the really old pair of winter gloves they've had forever. Warm gloves are an unappreciated bit of kit, but always useful to have a good pair ready and in wait.

Basically, no one like their feet to be wet when they shouldn't be, cold when they shouldn't be, and it's awful walking in something uncomfortable. All motorcyclists have had some experience with all three, possibly all at the same time. In this day and age even basic boots can be comfortable and waterproof, however fresh out of the box, as we all know leather is not the easiest to place on foot, but once worn in, they can be so comfortable, your slippers at home seem a little off. The following are a list of a few select boots that keep the waterproof and warm mindset for the colder months.
