Time is running short. You still haven’t figured out what to get for that knucklehead on your list who thinks it’s cool to be wrapped in leathers, have a glorified icebox strapped to their skull, and then drag various appendages along the nearest twisty strip of pavement. Fear not! Whether your intended buddy or babe pulls hooligan shenanigans on their supermoto or carves canyons on their crotch rocket, we’ve got you covered.
Whether you’re pinching pennies or throwing Benjamins out the window, these 10 items could help you hit the apex with your knee-dragger or hooligan during the holidays.
1. Blipshift Stickers

MSRP: $4.00 a pop
2. Tire Penz
Tire-safe pens with the option to add reflective properties to the paint make these items great stocking-stuffers.

3. Knee Pucks
Sometimes when you push, you slide. Hopefully, this is the part touching the ground. Like a pair of shoes, knee pucks wear out. Some of them are made to spark when dragged along the ground for extra flash. Showy riders may enjoy that, but most tracks frown upon it.
4. CargoBuckle Mini G3 with Dual S-Hooks
Any track day veteran knows how much of a hassle loading and unloading can be. These retracting ratchet tie-downs provide six feet of webbing and eliminate the need to tie-off the slack, sparing whoever’s loading the tedium of daisy-chaining and wrapping off excess webbing.
5. Forcefield Pro Sub 4
Lots of armor is toast after one decent blow. Forcefield Body Armour’s gear features Repeat Performance Technology, which is great if you’re pushing at the track and take a few tumbles. Show your daredevil you’ve got their back with some of the highest impact reduction on the market.
6. Socal Supermoto Gift Certificate
Give your speed-junkie a day of instruction on street and dirt, where they can learn to back it in and drag handlebars through turns. Socal Supermoto’s gift bundle includes a school gift certificate, Socal trucker hat, stickers, and photos to capture their experience.
7. Contour+2 Action Camera
Easy slide on-off operation, bluetooth connectivity, and a shape that won’t make you look like a Teletubby if you mount it on your helmet, the Contour+2 is a great GoPro alternative. Plus it gives you GPS Video Mapping, providing additional speed and location data.
8. Held Titan Evo Gloves
Kangaroo leather, ray skin, kevlar, carbon aramid and titanium sliders. Have you ever heard of a more sexy, competent, full gauntlet glove to protect your grubby paws? Nah, neither have I.
9. California Superbike School
Treat your track-addict to two days of intensive training from Keith Code and his staff. Riders get personal instruction, use of a new BMW S1000RR, pointers for smoothing out their lines and how to get knee down.
MSRP: $2,450.00 starting price for 2-Day Camps, but it may vary by track
10. Leod Motorcycle Escapes
Track days are one thing. How about riding some overseas MotoGP tracks while seeing all the local sights on two wheels? Are you kidding me?! Yeah. Pretty much a dream vacation. There are even options to bring a passenger along for the adventure!
MSRP: $5,350.00 and up
