    Gift Ideas Please

    Hi Guys,

    I need to buy fifty gifts with a budget of 20 for experienced motorcyclists.

    Obviously they all have the equipement to ride bikes but any ideas of something useful that may fit the bill?

    I did think an A5 Spiro Bound Waterproof European Atlas but could only find them in A4 size.
    What about a Maglite but everyone has a torch on their phone.
    Swiss knife?

    All and any ideas gratefully received, over to you.

    Love, light and kindness

    Dave

    I hope that's 20 EACH - you won't get much for 40p !  :153:

    But for 20 each here's a few thoughts .....

    Emergency Tyre Puncture Repair Kit
    12v Mini Tyre Inflator ( compressor )
    Multi-Tool ( e.g. "Leatherman" type - better than a Swiss Army Knife )
    First Aid Kit
    Spare Bulb Kit ( Universal or Custom if they are for riders of the same bike such as the Trophy )
    Nikwax helmet care kit ( cleaning product and visor rain repellent )
    Grip Puppies / Grip Buddies

    If the budget IS 40p each how about an Air Freshener,
    or a vinyl Tax disc holder for the inside of the Screen ?  :745:

    Cheers  :821:

    Oxford Bikers Tool Kits are good, about 15.

    My target audience are all very experienced motorcyclists and I know will have most if not all the items within Coconuts list which is what makes the choice difficult.

    Also it is a very personal thing. I was pretty fixed on a laminated A5 spirit bound atlas as I know they'll all have GPS but a current practice atlas would probably be of use, A5 means the sale is a bit small but do you think A4 size is OK?

    I recently got a KeySmart (http://www.getkeysmart.com/products/keysmart-ext) which I find useful and a bit quirky.

    Come on lads and lasses I'm relying on you.

    Love, light and kindness,

    Dave

    Here's a link that presents a few ideas:

    https://www.louis.de/en/produktkategorie/motorcycle-gift-articles/750

    including key rings, metal signs, mugs, key rags, mats...
    and if nothing appeals to you, you may go for an individual gift voucher.
    I'm not affiliated in any way with this company, only a quite regular customer and must say that I've always been happy with their products and services.
    Good luck!

    A4 or A5 ?

    I think A4 might be too large to fit in most Tank Bags so they can be seen
    through the clear viewing cover, so A5 would probably be better, you'd need to
    do some research to find if there's any product with a suitable scale of map
    to make them useable, on those A5 pages  :084:

    How about this one : NEW : Bikers Britain - The Tours ( Spiral Bound )

    Spiral Bound, A5 size, designed for motorcyclists,
    Published by the "AA", 44 great motorcycle routes,
    written by the Dep.Editor of Ride magazine, and costs 15.99 ...

    I think that ticks most of your boxes Dave ?  :028:

    Cheers  :821:
