X-mas Gift Ideas for Motorcylist?

6 posts in this topic

Hey all -

I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of a "must have" or nice-to-have accessory or item for the motorcyle enthusiast for around the $30-35 range? I do not own a motorcycle, that is why I am asking for help in finding a gift for a buddy. Anything you have bought or received fit the price range and worth recommending for others? Thanks for any or all suggestions, if it's something more expensive by a little feel free to share that too. May jog the brain...

Thanks all,

RSM

Fathers day I bought my dad a really nice cleaning kit that I put together. Don't skimp on it and buy a nice tote to carry everything in. For B-day I bought him a tank tuxedo.

Some eye brows for the lights always look nice. They are the little chrome hoods that go on the top of the light. They are like only 20 bucks! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Probably getting too late but a nice pair of gloves...even the summer evenings get pretty cool once the sun sets.

    • Here's number 3 for the year! Not a bad find for a couple hours after work.  It was so fresh it still had wet blood on the base.
    • East wind is the worst...!! Bad juju. Always means a storm. Gonna have an East one tomorrow......and my barometer is already headin' down, in time for the 6-8" of big snow tomorrow. Watch it plummet before a big summer storm, or rise into the 30's on those warming, clear days. I've always watched the winds and barometer since I was a kid (got into the weather thing in "science class") , you can do better yourself than the forecasters do. It's easy and fun, IMO. Some fun facts:   http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2010/10/27/lowest-barometer-reading-ever-in-minnesota/
    • I guess I never associated a north wind wind lower pressure. Or a south wind with higher pressure.  Learn something new everyday
    • I watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg or mb; millibars) or when it swings up past 30.0 mb. That's my reference for "highs" or "lows" on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. I  love my old dial Aneroid barometer.  They last forever, too.  Mines kicking about 35 years... (That's not mine, pic is for low and high reference...)    
    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting?
