Nothing says "Will you be my Valentine" better than getting your motorcycle-loving significant other something fun and different this Valentine's Day.
Here's a list of motorcycle-related products that will be just as effective as Cupid's arrow.
MotoChic Lauren Sport bag
Give the gift of convenient toting with MotoChic's Lauren Sport bag. This backpack/shoulder bag combo has many convenient interior pockets and exterior zippered pockets that can help your girlfriend, wife, or friend carry their belongings to and from work, the store, or that restaurant you are going to take them to on Valentine's Day (psst, don't forget to make those reservations).
This bag features a nifty LED light switch on the inside, making it easy to see where items are. Take it from me, it's annoying to shove my face into the deepest recesses of my purse to find my wallet or rifle for my phone to use it as a flashlight to see the interior. Included straps for both backpack and bag versions make swapping styles on the fly easy, and both magnetic and zippered enclosures at the mouth of the bag provide a sense of security.
Nowadays the laptop goes wherever we do, so this bag has a storage compartment that can hold a 15-inch laptop. Other niceties include a key clip to keep those elusive things handy, reflective panels for increased visibility, and sweet interior lining design with motorcycles on it. Get it for a suggested retail price of $295.
MotoChic performance socks
You might be thinking, "Socks? Why would socks be a good gift?" Before you start hammering away in the Facebook comments, hear me out.
Useful gifts are nice to get, too, and when you combine that with motorcycle designs and function, the rider in your life would be stoked to represent her love for motorcycles right down to her toes. These socks are made with 25mm high-grade compression that is designed to enhance performance and comfort while active or inactive. Suggested retail: $18 for a pair.
Thom Duma Fine Jewelry
A piece of jewelry is one of the quintessential gifts to give on Valentine's Day, so here's that classic go-to. Jewelry like this Racer Series Racing Photo Pendant from Thom Duma Fine Jewelry (yes, that is Thom Duma, the flat-track racer and jeweler of the American Flat Track Championship rings) is completely custom; Duma provides art direction and his designers execute.
The TDFJ team will transform a photo of your choice and turn it into a flauntable and beautiful necklace. This sterling silver custom piece comes with, but is not limited to, an 18-inch chain for ladies and 20-inch chain for men. A pop of color can be added that can match your leathers and is priced at $699.
Pricing will vary for the 14K white and yellow gold options. Since these are handmade you do have to allow three weeks for the process, so if you are a little late for Cupid's holiday, put a note in a box that her real gift is on its way and that she won't be disappointed.
Carter Asmann motorcycle art
Vincent van Gogh once said that "I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people" -- but why not tell the person you love them with a sweet piece of moto-art?
Carter Asmann’s pieces are truly unique works that anyone who loves motorcycles (or even coffee) can appreciate. With pieces like the "Ural Top View Coffee Ring Drawing" or the "Honda CB550 + Mattie Coffee Ring Drawing" your Valentine can show off their artsy taste in their home or office. Motorcycle prints run for $60.
Touching the World: A Blind Woman, Two Wheels and 25,000 Miles
Love a book worm? Get her the inspirational story of Cathy Birchall, the first blind woman to circumnavigate the globe aboard a motorcycle with her co-author and husband-in-2012 Bernard Smith.
In short, this story takes the reader on Cathy's 26,385-mile ride aboard a 1990 BMW R100RT across 31 countries and five continents. She experiences mechanical troubles, fields testaments of kindness from strangers, and overcomes boundaries in this moving piece. You can find this book for various values on Amazon.
