But what about riding gear?
You’ll notice we’ve steered clear of riding gear and helmets in our suggestions. That’s not to say that your favorite motorcyclist wouldn’t welcome some new riding gear, it’s just that most riding gear and helmets require the person to be present when these products are purchased.
This is because getting the size right is essential if the product is to protect the rider. So, riding gear and helmets are great gifts, but only if the recipient is present when you purchase them or you know their exact sizing. Of course, there’s always the option of a gift card which solves the problem.
