Buying gifts for others can be a frustrating process. Thankfully, if you have a dirt biker in your life, you at least get to narrow down your search to one category: “dirt bike stuff.” Motocross lovers never have enough of the gear, apparel, or parts that they want, so you have the opportunity to make their day with the right presents.
But with so many options, you may be lost as you scroll through pages of motocross products. Whether it’s a Christmas or birthday gift or a surprise just to say “thank you,” here are some of the best motocross gift ideas.
What to Buy a Motocross Enthusiast
Framed Personal Action Photo
Motocross enthusiasts love action shots. Even if the person you’re buying for is modest and would never pay for a photograph of him- or herself, you can do it. Consider hiring a local sports photographer so you can get a professional shot. Frame it to give it an added touch. This makes for a unique and unexpected present.
Speaking of capturing dirt bike moments, action cams are some of the most sought-after items for motocross lovers. If your friend doesn’t have a GoPro or another type of camera yet, make this one of your top considerations. Dirt bikers enjoy recording their rides, replaying highlights, and critiquing themselves.
As a friend or relative of a dirt biker, you probably notice that his or her wardrobe has some pieces of MX apparel. You can always bolster up this part of the closet by picking up some motorcycle casual apparel. It’s easy to find the best motorcycle brand shirts online.
Dirt Bike Boots
You want to be careful about buying fits when it comes to actual riding gear. Generally, you want to avoid buying a jersey or helmet because those items depend a lot on personal preference. But dirt bike boots are another story. As long as you know the person’s size, you can pick up a pair of durable, high-quality boots. Most boots come in neutral colors so they are easy to match with almost any jersey.
Riding a dirt bike requires a lot of different kinds of gear. If the person you’re buying for carries around their gear in a simple duffel bag or doesn’t even have a bag, then a gear bag may be a great gift choice.
Dirt bikers can never have too many pairs of gloves. This is especially true for those who ride trails and races. It’s always handy to have an extra pair of gloves ready to go.
Decals and Graphics
A lot of motocross riders want more graphics but can’t justify the purchase themselves. Aftermarket graphics are just plain cool, so it’s something to consider.
Tickets to an Event
Is there a supercross or FMX event near you coming soon? If so, tickets to it may be some of the best things you can get for the motocross enthusiast in your life.
There are so many other options, including cheap motorcycle parts, magazine subscriptions, and accessories. But use this guide as a starting point and you’ll be sure to find the right present.
