Top 10 Christmas gifts for bikers

Ten of our favourite Christmas biking gifts

CHRISTMAS shopping: easy if you know what to get, a royal pain the arse if you don't.

Fortunately, it is easy to know what to get for a motorcyclist. It's just a question of inspiration, which is where we can help. 

We've sifted through hundreds of products to bring you a list of 10 with something to please every rider, and every budget.

Tiger 800 balance bike

Admittedly not so much for the motorcyclist as future motorcyclist, this Triumph Tiger balance bike is suitable for kids aged between two and six. It's got an adjustable seat-height, from 330mm-350mm, so it can grow with the child. Balance bikes are a great way to teach children to ride from an early age, often enabling them to move straight to a pedal bike with no stabilisers... followed by a mini moto next Christmas and MotoGP bike by 18.

Dainese Street Biker D-WP shoes

The suede cowhide also accommodates tough, highly resistant inserts and provides a blend of fashion and impact resistance. They have nylon heel protectors with reflective inserts and a waterproof inner.

An included USB adaptor means you can also charges mobiles and other gadgets. No more getting lost when your satnav's battery expires.
