Gift ideas for Bikers 2022
Gift suggestions for motorcyclists
We don’t know of any biker that has everything he needs. Bikes don’t stay standard for long (checkout our modified bike insurance) and riders can always find plenty of things to purchase: we go weak at the wallet every time we walk into a dealer…
Anyway, if you’re stuck for what to buy the biker in your life - at Christmas or any time - here’s a few ideas from us below.
Pit Stop - Oxford Firepit £59.99 & Grill £29.99
Ingeniously crafted from top quality stainless steel, its ultra-compact, flat-pack design means this travel firepit fits easily into luggage, specifically a pannier. Best of all, it takes seconds to build and has an easy to clean (wet wipe?) surface. Turn it into a barbecue by adding the separately available Grill attachment.
