The Ultimate Motorbike Christmas Gift List PART 1:
Elf no 1: “Who is Santa’s favourite singer?”
Elf no 2: “Elf-is Presley!”
Some of our favourite Motorbike gifts this year include stylish motorbike apparel. Bike clothes no longer have to be ugly, overly padded, clunky or unflattering. From comfy t-shirts and jumpers to protective leggings that are also aesthetically pleasing. Not to mention beautiful leather boots and handcrafted accessories, the emerging world of bike fashion that can be worn as street style means there are more and more options out there. Here are our top recommendations…

They are thick enough to keep out the wind and chill yet also lightweight. This Australian brand say they refuse to compromise on safety or style so the Black Arrow rider has both.
Helmets are the only type of mandatory bike gear that is required to be worn by law. Therefore, it’s an essential bit of kit, and one that can make an enjoyable yet practical gift for any of your loved ones that are in to their bikes. However, when shopping around for helmet, you should check what size they are first as it’s important that the helmet fits correctly, as well as ensuring that it meets the required safety checks. If you’re not sure of the above details, then it’s best to purchase a gift voucher.

Premier has been passionate about helmets since 1956. With various distinct collections, their helmets often decorated with vibrant and unique graphics that cannot be found in many other places, making them truly unique gifts for motorcycle riders.
