When pondering what special gift to give your biker friend, the first items that spring to mind probably revolve around his motorcycle, and that's OK. However, accounting for individual taste and interests is important when choosing any gift, so you can't assume he loves Harley-Davidson or that he would wear a leather studded vest. Think about what kind of bike he likes best, whether he takes long road trips, and what gear he already owns. Here are some gifts motorcyclists will dig:

Bags for Biking
One issue all motorcyclist deal with is how to transport their belongings with them without the space of a vehicle's interior. Saddlebags for the bike will get plenty of use, or opt for a smaller bag that attaches to the sissy bar of a bike; these are available with comfort padding to make the ride cosier, too. A sturdy messenger bag to sling across the shoulder will suit the needs of someone who just uses their motorcycle for putting around town.
Motorcycling equipment can be stylish and doesn't have to be expensive, so you can take care of some one your biking aficionado's little details. Get a helmet holder that attaches to his bike and holds his protective gear while he's not on the bike or pick up a pair of special biker sunglasses to cut down on the glare when he's riding on those clear, bright days. For chilly days a pair of riding gloves or a riding scarf will be greatly appreciated.
Biker Goody Bag
Assemble a few smaller items to make a goody bag for your motorcycle enthusiast. Start with any bag or use one of the bags designed specially for bikes. Fill this with small things that show you've been thinking of him and his bike, like hand warmers, reflective tape, helmet freshener, helmet locks and a seat cover. Add a couple of items like magnets, a key chain or decals with his favourite bike or manufacturer on them.
A gift for a motorcyclist doesn't have to something he can use on the road. Any biker will be thankful for a subscription to a motorcycle magazine; find out if he likes to tinker with his bike or if he's interested in cruisers or crotch rockets to pick the magazine he would be most interested in. There are also many choices of books with motorcycle themes to adorn your biker's coffee table. Try 100 Years of Harley-Davidson by Willie G. Davidson or American Motorcycle Girls by Cristine Sommer for some visually appealing books.
