So, if you were to be given a motorcycling related gift, what would it be ?

sapaul, you should know that cash or a gift card is always best when you don't know what to get. Make it more personal by including something small that says you actually tried to find just the right thing. :)

I was told to cease purchasing tight Ducati T-shirts for Mrs High-Side quie some time ago. Since then she has received a heated jacket, followed by the matching thermostatic control a short time later. I'm starting to run out of ideas as well. Looking forward to hearing the other responses for my own personal benefit :)

Carrie says, more information. First, is this a friend or SO? Does the lady in question already have gear, and does she ride her own scoot or mainly a pillion rider?

You can never go wrong with a Gremlin Bell, for starters. In the past I've bought Carrie handebar tassles, a DIY helmet lock, highway bars and pegs. That's in addition to the regular compliment of jackets, vests, and shirts. And I've learned that a biker girl can never have enough different kinds of jackets.

Thanks Jack, I posted in the Ladies lounge hoping to get a reply from .............. well ....... a Lady, so I am glad you asked your SO.

The Goose rides a CBR 600 RR and everything of mine, has a 2 piece leather suit, a 1 peice race suit, leather pants, Xkulcha pants, a pink jacket, a winter jacket and camel toe gloves, touring boots and race boots and a pair of 14 tog socks. She also has a ST Christopher. :D

Now be a good boy and go tell your SO everything I told you, thanks :lol:

So, Carrie says your woman already has everything she needs, and you may have to resort to jewelry. Her recommendation is a tennis bracelet that matches her bike.

I think she needs her own Mrs. Claus suit. (-;

If I knew your wife, I'd know what to get. The only woman I have trouble with is my eldest daughter that has more toys than I do...

Thank you for being bold Blues, so you think a toothbrush and some one who knows how to use it is a good idea ?

Only if that person gives a great massage..otherwise..you don't want to go there.

:laughing:

Another motorcycle related idea is a new face shield for the helmet. That is, if she wears a full face helmet. Face shields tend to get scratched and they can be costly to replace.

I like the massage idea.

Offer to detail her bike? (provided you do it right. You know we can be fussy about these things)

I usually buy whatever bike related thing that I want, when I want to, so I'm not much help.

For what it's worth, I make a lot of silver jewelry that plays well with motorcycle gear.
Ooooooh. Shiny!
