With Black Friday and Cyber Monday upon us once again, it is time to start pondering what to get our two-wheeled riding loved ones for Christmas, Hanukkah, whatever gift-giving traditions that the church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster may have, and even for the atheist in your life that likes receiving gifts on a cold December day.
Here is a brief list for those motorcycle enthusiasts in your life. These are some of our favorite items which have served us well on our round-the-world trip. We are not sponsored by any of the products below, and bought each item ourselves with our hard-earned money. These are simply our fair, honest opinions after putting them through hell over the last two years.
Some great items that wont break the bank. The links to products and their reviews on Amazon are highlighted in Green. Don't just take our word for the items below, click on the links to see detailed pictures and further reviews that will help make an informative decision.
Under the Tree
The "They have been really good" List
I personally can vouch for each and every one of these items. Some things on this trip have fallen apart or have not served us well, but not these items. They are travel-tried and true, and I'm sure that it would make any adventure motorcyclist grin from ear to ear to unwrap one of these gifts.
For a more detailed list of every item we bring with us, along with our ratings of what has worked and what hasn't, check out Our Gear page.
I of course have to plug our growing collection of adventure books and guides. Within the chapters of Maiden Voyage is even more insight into our original gear. You can read about how we were woefully unprepared for our trip around the American West. None of the gear we had purchased for that trip made it onto the current trip we are undertaking.
